I got the car back today after almost two weeks, and I am just not pleased with the results.

The guys in the shop do know what they are doing, but with the mods I have listed below I came up with 222rwhp and 338 on a 100 shot...not too good in my opinion.

The chip was reburned to fit for the new injectors, plugs, etc, so I know its not too rich. I just CAN NOT believe so little gain for soooo much money. I am thinking with the bottle on I am looking at 12.7's, am I incorrect?

He put a 125 nozzle on, and it jumped to 360, but that is too much for a stock motor. Is this good, to be expected, or does it just plain stink? What a depressing SOB :( :vomit:

If those numbers were made on a Mustang Dyno then they are respectable numbers. If that was on a dynojet then they seem a bit low. Don't get too caught up in the numbers though, go run the car and see how it does.

That's the way the game is. You can spend alot of money and get next to nothing out of it, but then when you add a power adder, what you didnt get anything out of before is now a key player in the wide scheme of things. Injectors, exhaust and a chip tune does very little N/A, but when you put the power adder (nitruos) on there, it's making more than if you did just the power adder by itself.

222rwhp is a little low, but not by much, considering you only have exhaust and the chip. 338 seems decent... what were your tq numbers?
Thanks for all the input so far guys, I appreciate it.

I have to run by the shop tomorrow to get the dyno sheet, so I am unsure what the tq numbers were. I was thinking of pullies, o/r h or x-pipe and mac cold air intake, but pullies and cold air is a waste of $$ if I supercharge it in a few months. I hear long tubes are the way to go, but just how expensive is a decent set?

222 is just low to me, but again, I just sold my 394/498 02 Lightning, so it probably should seem slow to me. I would have never got out of the L if the wife didnt need a family car...

In any event, is there anything else besides offroad pipe, shorties, pullies, and Mac that might give me more bang for the buck?

BTW, I went with 3.73's, POOR CHOICE. I only noticed a SLIGHT increase in acceleration. I kick myself in the butt for not going 4.10's like my gut told me to :rolleyes:

I don't know about 360 being too much for a stock motor. I know nitrous has a different affect than superchargers but I'm well over that # now and getting ready to go even bigger when my RR pulley comes in to get back to 12 psi. I know, I know, your'e thinking I'm gonna' blow it up. Well, maybe. I trust my tuner (Chris Johnson) and he says he can tune it for that so we'll see. Anyway, what I'm saying is most guys I've talked to feel comfortable with a 150 shot but that's with someone tuning the car that knows what he's doing.

Since this is my first real MUSCLE CAR I have owned, putting the 3.73's in was a very noticeable difference to me. Seems like you already stated why you didnt notice the difference like the rest of us

If your going power adder, you will probably be happier you got the 3.73's, IMO anyway.
