I am thinking of using this kit with your 1979-95 FORD MUSTANG 5.0L 302 ECONOMY SHORT BLOCK, in place of my stock engine that has some bottom end problems.
Do you know if there would be piston to valve clearance issues with this kit along with your short block?
Also, what else would be needed to support this kit and your short block?
If anything else is needed to support this kit and short block, what can I use from my factory setup, and what would i need to buy to support this? I am MAF equipped already, with a CAI.

As with all engine builds, you would definitely check the valve to piston clearance. This stage 2 cam has a .542 lift and you might have an issue. The Street Burner top end kit has the stage 1 cam with a .512 lift which would give you more clearance and is only 10 HP less.
As with any combination, all HP numbers are based off a engine that has a larger fuel system, exhaust system and a upgraded ignition system. A 70 MM throttle body and EGR spacer with 24 LB injectors and matching MAM is a good choice, A complete MSD ignition system is almost a must to ignite this huge amount of air and fuel that this new motor will be taking in,
Your factory harness, computer and sensors will all work with this setup.

Good question Paul. Your 93 Mustang Cobra will come to life with this top end kit. I would recommend a larger fuel pump like a 155 LPH and a 70 MM throttle body and EGR spacer to make sure you are not restricting this combination.
A good flowing CAI kit is a must and the Mass Air Meter should always be larger than the T/B. Remember the motor is a huge air pimp, so the more air you get into the motor, the more HP it will produce.

This kit does not require your stock pistons to be flycut. However, we strongly advise you to always check the piston to valve clearance whenever you are adding a top-end kit to an engine.

I have a 1990 lx hatch back 5.0 ho. But seems like it's just getting older. I need advice on how to make it run not only cooler but harder. I want more torque. Only thing I've done since I bought car (which was pretty much stock) is bbk shorty header, bbk cold air, and bbk pullys. What should I get next. Thanx

This would be a great option to go with, this set up is rated at around 350HP. You may want to look at doing our SVE radiator packages for the cooling upgrades as well.
