I'm having questions as to where to start my build up. I have just purchased a 97 5 speed w/ 78,000 miles at a good price. I'm pretty new to the mustang world but have a good understanding of the engine. My first step is to increase the HP/TQ. I can't decide on whether I want to do the full PI swap, or do a NPI cam swap w/PI intake. Down the road I plan on adding a blower to the car. Any ideas? I'm looking to spend b/w $1000-$2,000 right now. Right now I want around 280-300hp at the wheels. I've looked at Steen racing which offers the full head swap with the stage 1 porting for about $1500. I plan on adding the blower in about a year or two. At the end I am looking for 400-480hp at the wheels. I know the head swap will increase the compression but if I plan on putting the blower I will have to be rebuild w/ forged internals for the hp level. What would be a good start to get to the 280-300hp range?
