    ok guys like the title says i want to get the 97 running a lot better... i want to keep it naturally aspirated though...

    its a 97 gt vert with an automatic..

    my mods so far are:
    granetelli motorsports upper intake plenum
    ford racing 70mm throttle body
    mac cold air intake
    steeda underdrive pulleys
    full bullitt suspension kit (springs, shocks, struts, and sway bars)
    ford racing strut tower brace
    and for exhaust as of right now is factory h-pipe with 4 cats cut on it, will be ordering a bbk off-road x-pipe in a couple of weeks...

    the only thing you can really do to get good power and stay NA is a PI swap with ported heads and aftermarket cams...

    hmm not much you can do untill a p.i. swap actualy you could add a catback your midpipe pi cams or aftermarket cams and a p.i. intake and you would have so good power

    Get some gears and a stall and it will respond to the power you have allready. They wont add power but will deliver what you have better.

    PI swap. Do a Pi intake and at some PI cams. At least a PI intake. Your Plenum and TB is not doing much due to the NPI intake. Getting a PI one will maximize the mods you have.

    Alot of people miss this but get it tuned. Every little bit helps when it comes to tuning those mods.
