It got put on a temp hold due to some financial issues. But I'm hoping to have her out this summer
As far as number go, I'm hoping to tip 400 to the wheels. Not much compared to some cars these days but enough for me...for now
I'm sticking with a PI intake for now because its what I already have and it'll fit under the hood.
Down the road (next winter maybe) I'll either buy this
Or have my friend Pete (Nosnhoj Performance) fab a similar one and modify the hood for it to fit. I should be able to pick up some additional decent numbers with it. It just depends what it puts down with the PI because I really want to keep the factory look outside.
You might be hard pressed to get 400rwhp. My buddy has a 2001 Crown Vic. Pocket ported PI heads, PI engine fully forged with manley H-beam rods/dished pistons with valve reliefs, Hitech Stage2 cams with titanium valve retainers, 3.73s, 3400 stall, underdrive pullies, JMOD, 180* t-stat and 2.5" exhuast dumped at the rear axle with headers and he put down 286rwhp. He got 400 rwhp but that was on a 125 shot of nitrous.
Look at the literature in that link to the intake you posted and see what they said about 321rwhp. That's getting up there naturally aspirated. I think you might find 400rwhp to be virtually impossible unless you have some REALLY big plans.
How's it comin along dude? I just read your whole thread and I can't wait to see this beast complete lol. Any plans for the trans like j-mod, shift kit? How much power are you gonna be looking at with this setup? Idk if you posted it in here or not.
