I didn't start this as a ford vs chevy post.
As I said when i first posted it.
I was taking up a lot of space in another post trying to answer someones questions on how to make a mustang run low 13's on street tires @ 109.9.
Now for the age thing and day dreaming. Please I'm 42 and been a mechanic for the last 22 years.

My first choice would be a cobra intake.
It's all about air flow.
The stock intake sucks. # 1 & #5 are pinched off on the lower intake where it goes into the head.
If you want to do it cheap port the stocker.
I ported mine and had to epoxy #1 to get it straight enough for me. But when I put the cobra on I only went .1 faster. So it worked ok I guess. I also ported the upper where the T/B goes and tapered it into the intake.
The bottom of the upper can be ported as well.
If you don't want to buy a set of aftermarket heads then port them as well, they should work good.
The cam choice looks good for a n/a combo.
If you are going to put a blower on I would wait till then to do the cam swap and maybe get a custom grind for it.
And by all means get those headers on!!
Air in + air out = hp.
