    I thought the 5.0 was god's chariot???? EDIT: no pun intended :o

    btw, We're talking about the pre-03's right? He said its turboed, and those have superchargers.

    stock block is good for about 500. Actually the rods and pistons on a 5.0 are quite strong. but the blocks like to split right down the middle around the 500-600 mark :o

    would it take a lot of $$$ to get close to 500hp? I'm guessing I would be running 11's all day with everything else being equal (full interior)

    If you want to do it N/A it would just take about 2500 - 3000 for a nice heads/cam/intake package. Maybe add a bit more for some slicks and suspension and tuning.

    Hey, I got a cool video of the following:
    600 RWHP 03 Cobra cruising at 45 mph for a few seconds, and suddenly nailing the accelerating barking/scratching the tires.

    Let me upload it.. BRB

    kenne Bell blower = not stock. replaces the stock eaton so it can run more boost.

    probably has exhuast and intake too.

    how are the eatons?? Ford seems to have them in everything supercharged. :dunno:

    I'm sorry about all the stang/blower questions guys, but I'm not up on stangs.

    The eatons are fine its just the Kenne Bells are an aftermarket supercharger so they dont have to conform to the noise and emmisiions shit like the OEM ones do. They also make more boost.
