sup every one im new to the stang scene and I am seriously considering building a strip only car.Something from 83-90 in a trunk. The power plant im leaning towards is a 347 stroker with a procharger. I have read that 400 horse is the limit for a stock 5.0 block so i will def be getting an aftermarket race prepped block as well as an eagle rotating assembly to make the 347. I will also be getting either afr 205 or tfs race heads,a complete comp roler valve train with approx .627" or larger cam. With a matched intake throttle body ,injectors,fuel pump etc. etc. some where around a 3500-4000 stall torque converter,with a hughes strip c-4 tranny.all the suspension goodies for a strip car and of course slicks and skinnies.
my question is with proper suspension set up how much power will I need to run consistent 7.5-8 second 1/4 mile times with hopefully 160-175 mph. will a 347 with boost be enough or should i build a 418??
any help is appriciated bowdown.gif

Start here for ideas http://2koolperformance.ca/forum/index.php?showtopic=1246 Then call D'Sousa Performance in Milton Ontario for details on attaining your 7.5 second goal because that's going to take some serious 'HP' secrets with the list of mods you described.

We'll be pushing 685HP at the rear wheels with a Vortech T-trim blown 331 ( before nitrous ) and that's for a hopeful 9 second pass.

Get your 'naughty hp info from Joe' tell him Spenc referred you, then call us with the list of parts you need
