An 85 Mustang with a carb was just about 205 or 215 I will have to get the number out of my book. The Lin. has a different cam and gears from the mustang. I do know that the 90 Mark V11 has the same set up as the intercepter mustang minus the 5spd. These are very fast cars for the weight they more down the road.

I also know that the 93 Cobra was under rated from the factory. I believe they were rated at 235 or so stock but everyone that I have seen on a dyno has put out close to 275 at the rear wheels.

You really need to think about torque numbers because that's what gives you the seat of the pants feel. Late 80's early 90's Mustangs for example used to keep up just fine with the 350 Camaro's, some of this is due to weight and gearing but not all of it. Generally HP was listed at about 210hp +/- on a 302 but they put out about 275 ft-lb of torque. The Camaros listed out at 245 hp +/- and 345ish ft-lb. Torque can be gained from a motor just like HP through exhaust mods and what not. If you make a mod and pick up 3HP but 20 ft-lbs of torque chances are you'll feel it but if it's the opposite it might be unlikely. I forgot my point

First of all, I think its pretty difficult to make torque without making about a similar amount of horsepower. They're simply mathematical derivatives or one another, not separate entities. This has been debated to death, and both are important on the street.

Simply: torque is work, ie, how much work can you do? How much brute power does the motor make?

Horsepower: How fast can you do the work?

So how much torque do you need? Enough. How much HP do you need? As much as possible!

I Agree... I'm just simply saying most folks throw HP, HP, HP and even though I commented on torque, they do go hand and hand.

Sorry that 50 Hp isn't going to help you when your Camero is setting in the shop on several different times like all the other ones I know.

What year do you have and is it EFI or carb. And what intake do you want to put on.

Judging from a previous reply I think he has an EFI.

Sorry missed the EFI part.

Yes all of the mustang intakes will work. Except the ones on the Cobra's they are GT-40 the ports are arranged different. As much as I can remember you have an mass air setup with an intake just will all the other mustangs.

Now I see you installed a carb are you looking for info on a carb inatake or a EFI intake.
