5.0 HO Ford


This is just a street cruiser hot rod built 11 years ago: I have a absolutely totally stock 90 5.0 HO fuelie 5 spd in a 63 Fairlane hardtop, 3.50 gears, disk brakes, Air Cond, etc. It is the WC 204 transmission with Pro 5.0 shifter, "mopar super stock" type springs, Mobil 1 syn ATF, and Mobil 1 engine oil and diff lube. It has KN conical air filter and J code 302 log type cast iron exhaust manafolds, 2 inch duals with glass packs and pea shooters. It has run 9.33 in the eighth when I can hook it with 235/60 radial TAs on Magnum 500s. I'd guess it weighs about 3400. (I have stage 2 C6OE-M heads 56 cc/9.6 comp, and Hooker Super Comps lying in wait= 6 years)... What would you suggest as the next engine mod? I am thinking cold air intake... then CompCams XE 258HR maybe the 264 or 266. Eventually I want to use low boost centrifugal blower. I like the screw blowers but hooking will be impossible on the street. When it hooks solid it is bad-butt taking off, and in 60 feet I am marking in 2nd.
