In 1988 , I believe the stock ratings were HP= 225 , Torque= 300ftlbs You can do allot of things to boost power , such as high flow air filter , improved headers and duel exhaust from a good aftermarket supplier ( Hooker , Headman , etc )

on my 1988 mustang 5.0 ive installed a stage 3 trick flow cam new flat top pistens with cobra heads and GT40 intake also cobra bk shorty headers with flowmasters a 70mm tb and a T5 transmission a new PT rear end with 408 gears. it runs and sounds great but whats a good guess on the new HP its putting out now?
