    Just got a call from the shop who did my Mongoose kit SQ trim install....Keep in mind my car is a 1997 Mustang GT, AUTO, stock non pi heads/cams/intake...all i have is full bolt ons. My dad told me all of this so when I pick the car up tomorrow I will personally talk to the guy who did the tuning...but the car made 315rwhp, 365tq....he said something about my 90mm maf is pegged too so he could get me more hp but thats stopping him or something due to the 4inch boost pipe, I also think im only making around 8lbs of boost....well all in all im very pleased with the numbers. My next steps are a Paxton A/A intercooler, PI Intake Manifold, and a Mini Race bpv!!

    well the PI intake and cams make more power then the heads, but yes do that. heads, cams, intake and that will JUMP a good amount

    yes its been proven that the intake and cams make the most power, the heads add power but not as much as those 2, thats where most of the power comes from are the i/c

    positive, 80% of the hp increase from the full PI swap is from the cams/intake....other 20% is due to the heads/increase from compression

    decent number man,congrats!

    What kind of Maf do you have? What your tuner said sounds a little fishy......most 90mm won't peg under 500whp :dunno: Was it a SCT tune? Maybe his scalers were off.....or he's tryin to get you to buy a new meter.lol
