Here is my goals and hoepfully y'all can adivse me if it's possible or a pipe dream, sorry for it being so long
I'm wanting to get the power of my '94 Mark VIII up to about 400-425 engine hp to make the car a more enjoyable summer vehicle for me.
I've been reading for hours on end here and other forums and not come to a good conclusion in which direction I should go.
My main goal is I want to try doing as much of the work as possible myself to keep costs down (except for tuning, I'll definately leave that to a pro!)
I've beefed up the trans somewhat (not decided on a stall speed yet) and plan on putting a Trac Lok and (?) gears in it. (I could use advice on what to go with these too please.)
I've been looking at the Kenne Bell '96-98 'stang kit, as it would be the easiest I think to install. I wouldn't have to worry about fabbing up pipes, or moving the rad etc for an S trim install with the KB either.
I've heard this KB kit runs hot because of no intercooler and have read posts about people relocationg the IAT sensor to after the compressor and tuning it that way, good idea too?
Will I be able to use the Boost a Pump from the kit and/or will I need to upgrade the injectors and fuel pump?
My main worry I guess is the bottom end in this engine. Will it take this hp on a good tune? It has 62k miles, runs strong with good compression even across the board. I will drive it through the summer as a daily driver (I have a beater for the winter) and take it to the track the odd weekend for fun.
As mentioned I just want a more enjoyable car to drive
Thanks for any help,
