What do you mean by "the wood factor". Also, how do I know what 180 degree stat to get? I just put a new 195 in, so I need to know what thermostat I need to get.
anything you choose to install in your powertrain that's
for eye appeal only and offers no performance improvement.
The MAF's a bolt in with the installation of the wiring connector.
You can get the proper 180 degree 'stat from Ford parts or a
Robert Shaw Extra Performance 180 degree 'stat at Autozone.
HP gains? With the chip and MAF and the other minor mods
maybe 10 hp at the crank - maybe a tenth+ or so in the 1/4.
Pulling power out of our engines is not a gimme, you're
fighting a weak breathing set of heads - so massive exhaust
work won't yield much benefit unless you address the head
problem also. You might want to consider a higher stall TC
to help break you into the 14's, but that's not a cheap mod.
Hope this helps,
