All the ones I have ever seen that are rear wheel drive are turboed v8s and making more than 260rwhp.

and im pretty sure a 90 gt with a 5.0 was rated at 225 hp at the crank factory and 300 ft.lbs. so if its only making 240 flywheel with full bolt ons such as the gt 40 intakes that you claim give 15-20hp then the rest of the bolt ons are worthless? if thats the case a 5.0 sucks and i know better than that. Sounds to me like your information is a little off fanboy.
I think I found who the internet tough guy is. Here, I'll try to help you out. First, I'm used to typing rwhp I use rwhp all the time since all I've owned are mustangs. Second, I never said I was trying for 9s. I said there are guys in the 9s N/A using stock STROKE, but obviously not stock internals or block. Go back read what I actually said instead of skipping through it. There are enough people in the 10s N/A with a stock shortblock THIS MEANING stock block, internals, stroke. It really isn't that hard when you know what you are doing. My junk even runs high 12s on the primaries.

Third, I said bolt-ons, this immediately makes me wonder if you know cars at all. Bolt-ons refers to, exhaust, tune, timing change, UDPs, aluminum DS and an electric fan. Changing intakes, heads, RRs or anything else does count as bolt-ons. So with all those parts listed there you will get roughly 240-250hp flywheel or 200-210rwhp. Closer to 200rwhp though.

To the earlier post, I thought I was replying too SMITHBOY76908, not 02_Z_X_3.

and 02_Z_X_3, Reading > You.

Roushturboedzx3, I haven't targeted you for anything. Unless I'm missing what you are trying to get at?
