Very mild build, mostly just a factory refresh with some extra goodies.

ARP studs
MLS head gaskets
9.5:1 forged pistons (stock is 10.2:1)
Billet steel oversized oil gear set
+1mm intake valves (same as the second gen)
All new factory seals/gaskets/bearings
Lost motion assembly
Billet cam plugs
Baffled oil pan

That’s just the motor, a bunch of extra stuff is being done as well, invoice is about 3 pages long. I didn’t show it because I’d feel like a dbag trying to brag about prices n what not. (The NSX tax is not cheap...)
^_^

Only about 9psi with a bit of wiggle room in case I want more. Without aftercooling, intake temps are my biggest hurdle atm hence the lower compression. Not looking into water/meth quite yet.

Just call Julio at Alkycontrol and be done with it. His kits are super simple to set up and dead reliable. His pump lasted 6 years with 100% M1 on my car before it needed a rebuild. A new pump is only $200. I'd be stuck at 600whp without it.

Tuning is really easy too. The extra safety is worth the price of admission even if you don't turn the power up imo.

It’s will be pretty safe as it sits, 9psi non aftercooled is quite common on a stock block with its 10.2:1 cast pistons with shitty CA 91 octane. A lightly built engine and flex fuel is almost overkill, and the company building and tuning this even comes with a 1 year/12k mile warranty. I’m not trying to chase every last hp, I just want something fun, low maintenance, and reliable.

You didn't say anything about flex fuel! Corn cures all haha

Whoops, yeah I’m having flex fuel sensors installed and AEM Infinity will blend the fuel maps based on what it reads. E85 does wonders for cylinder cooling/anti knock xD

Had some fun in the mustang today on the first 'warm' day of the year..

Was having a horrible time trying to hook the car in 1st gear when launching.. Between the wheel hop and just the blatant lack of traction, fords launch control "set between 3500-4500 RPMS" is a fucking joke.. Today, I was finally able to finesse my car to a 4.6 second 0-60 by launching it around 2500-2800 RPMS and easing out of the clutch..

Once I get this bushing kit and some fatter tires, I feel like that'll probably shave 1/10th off the time easily, but I feel like 4.6 is where it's at right now.

Starting my list of shit I want done to it, so far the only thing I've done is an oil separator.. Plan on a catback, long tubes, Lund tune, subframe bushing kit and the Ford performance gt350 intake.

According to everything I've read, that should put me around 440 RWHP.. I'm probably hanging around 380-390 right now.. Either way, plenty of fun and I'm getting so much enjoyment out of this car!
