First I would like to say I'm new to all this and very green so please bear with me. I have a 95 gt vert with @ 80,000 or less miles. I would like to increase power a bit. I have been told it is best to go with heads , upper & lower intake
and cam all at once. I'm not looking for crazy power but would like more than the stock 215 crank hp. I would like advise on what and all parts I would need to accumulate to make a little more power. My car has auto trans and is stock with the exception of 373 gears and a bbk cold air kit. I just had my trans rebuilt can't remember for sure what was done other than it is supposed to be stronger than stock with a stall converter. Sorry I can't explain more about the tranny but as mentioned earlier I'm pretty green and don't understand all of this. I do know the tranny shifts harder than the stock one did. I would appreciate it if you fellas could give my advise on what to do.
Thank you for all and any help/advise provided.
Cheers!

I wouldn't even bother cracking open the motor and just get a vortech kit you can easily get 350rwhp out of it and be more then happy

[MENTION=14656]Musturd[/MENTION] basically hit the nail on the head. HCI can and will RUN 3k plus even if you piece everything together (I'm talking new parts only), plus a tune and labor to install it all. Getting a Vortech will get you the power you want, and more, for probably less money than HCI plus cheaper in labor to install it. But beware, anytime you put boost on a motor, there's always added risks for blowing shit.. But that's not trying to stray you away from a blower, millions of people with mustangs and 5.0s run turbo's, superchargers on stock blocks and do fine with em.

The stock motor will handle the vortech kit no problem? I know a guy that is putting his low mile vortech kit up for sale , would that be a good way to go? 300 to 350 wheel hp would be plenty of power for me. With that much power will the stock rear end handle it ?
by the way thanks for the reply.

The super charger he is going to sell is a complete vortech S trim kit for 94/95 gt with straight cut gears , no play , no nicks , S trim head. He is asking $1800 Canadian for it. Is this fair or should I stay away from used. I don't know the guy personally.
Thanks for your time.

No no that's reasonable , where abouts in Canada are you ? I'm also in Canada I bought my s trim used . Yea you'll be able to handle it no problem keep it at no more then 10-12lbs to be safe ... You'll want some 42lb injectors a 255lph or 340lph fuel pump and a pro m maf

I would recommend if you don't already have them is 3.73 gears for a manual T-5 or 4.10's for an automatic transmission. They have a good kick!!!!

Don't consider 4:10's boosted with the auto. The 3:73s you have are good.

80k on the stock block... You will be fine with a blower. The 8.8 will handle the increase with ease.

Blower, Supporting mods, Stock long block, etc... you will easily hit your goal with the Vortech provided pulleys.
