    oh yeah.. stock it made 7 1/2 lbs boost. Stock upper pulley was 3.5". i'm running a 2.6" upper pulley. i haven't changed the lower pulley yet. The tq curve looks like a rectangle hay bail from 1800-5500. the blower hasn't been ported, but the inlet was seriously hogged out to to get as much air into the blower case as possible. I have a 4" cold air intake that draws from the fender well. that gave me an extra 1.5 lbs of boost and almost 32 hp and 28 ft/lbs to the wheels! it got mid length headers, a huge single blade 110 mm throttle body. aftermaket heat exchanger, etc. I want to port the blower, ad a bigger crank pulley to push boost to 18-20lbs. I can't though because i'm maxxed out on injector, pump and on a 28 degree dayi'll peg the air meter. so to make another 40-50 hp i have to spend 2k... might as well do a big KB or whipple if i go that route...

    Sounds like you've pushed it as far as it will go and still be a reliable driver. 18.5 is a lot.

    A friend of mine builds hot rod diesels and he said their pulling truck motors make 100 - 150 PSI. I was like, what is that...metric or something? Nope. I don't know how they keep the heads on. Must be a trade secret because he wouldn't tell me.

    Yep, that's a fact. This is my ol' ported Stihl 051AV (only 95cc), hoping to rebuilt my 075AV into an 076AV (111cc) Super this coming summer or fall......I'm probably gonna give it the woods-port treatment and a squish band removal too.

    Oh and the velocity stack spacer, and one of my trademark dual-port mufflers (they look alot like the one on your Husky)!

    someday, the 090 will appear in my shop.......I hope....

    Oh dear god. No. Seriously. chevy motors DO NOT belong in Fords. Nothing kills a sweet hotrod quicker than looking under the hood of a Ford and finding a 305 or 350 (like those aren't done to death anyway).

    A friend of ours is (still) working on swapping a 5.4 into his 03 Cobra. At least if I recall off the top of my head that's what it is. It's been years, lol. Now he went and bought a new Boss so I think it's going be a few more :p

    Sonic blue is my second fav color in the SN95's, with Electric Green being my first.

    Do you know what an LS motor is? This isn't your run of the mill "350" chebby. Do a search on LS swapped fox body mustangs and tell me what ford production motor can hadle 850 rwhp bone stock? An LS based fox swap with a bone stock motor with a cam swap is a 10.50 car. Tell me what ford motor can do that? Tell me what ford motor costs what an LS motor does. I'm a gear head. I would never put a 350 in a ford, but the LS series engines are totally different. My thought is cheap horsepower. A 350 dollar junkyard motor and a 350 dollar efi swapped harness is all you need for a reliable 10 second NA ride. That's a blower, stroker motor and aftermarket block 347 territory there...throw a cheap turbo kit on it and off to the races. The fasted stock LS based ford swap is going 8.50's in a fairmont with a 5.3L 100K mile truck motor. motor is stock, abeit a set of ARP rod bolts, head studs and cam change. Stock heads, intake, block, pistons, crank, etc.. Again, show me what stock ford motor witll do that and triple the price. You won't find one...
