mustang maniac: true for most part making torque does cost horsepower, except in case of the tri Y header, which gives you both. Also, RPM air gap intake, with right engine, virtually no loss in low end torque (ex. very low r's), i think too, better carb, like a demon, and HRM says on last dyno losing stock steel blade fan and putting on a clutch driven fan-viscous drive-gained 15 ft lbs and gained 1 HP. i think i've seen where 1:6 rockers dont effect torque since it doesn't change duration, but adds HP because more lift. What have you heard. Usually, if you gain both torque and HP, however, you lose the torque at the low end, and catch back up in top end, which doesn't help a damn bit for me, i don't think.
