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.

Johnny- you can use this kit, all you would need the throttle body adapter. http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/TFS-5150SN9511/1994-95-Mustang-50L-Gt-Black-Trick-Flow-75Mm-Throttle-Body-A
The intake is a little taller as well so you may run into clearance.

This kit comes with everything you need to get it running all you need to do is install it. The only other thing I would recommend is upgrading to 24 lb. fuel injectors, a matching MAF and a 75mm throttle body. That will allow you get get the most out of this top end kit.

I have a 90 lx 5.0. It has stock bottom end right now. I have 30lb injectors, bbk maf to match, 75mm tb, bbk cai, full msd ignition, bbk shorty headers and off road h pipe. Will this kit work with what I have and not go against what I plan on doing eventually ( 331 stroker with supercharger on about 10psi)?

This kit will work well in both scenarios. Most will run 24lb injectors but if tuned properly, you can get by with 30lb. When you plan the 331, just ensure that overall compression ratio will be low enough to run boost with pump gas, and you will be good to go.

I would highly recommend to go with the stage 1 rather than the 2 due to the fact you still have the stock bottom end. You will be more likely to run into PTV issues with the stage 2. Latemodelrestoration.com always recommends to verify and check for PTV clearance when installing any head or cam combo.

This can be used on an 86, but if the engine is original to the car, it will have flat top pistons with no valve reliefs, so checking piston to valve clearance is required.
