    What would it take to get the 5.0L in the F-150 to 400-425whp? I looked around and didnt find much.

    And what's your MPG, type of driving (highway and/or city) and mods please?

    Thanks Spade

    I'd drive it.

    Just going off of your mods and the dyno numbers I thinking it would take a chunk of change to get 400whp without NOS.

    lets not forget the mustang has a full point of compression.. and mid lenghth headers/manifolds alread thats 30+ for the compression alone .. headers prob 10+ it starts adding up.. i just traded my 2012 5.0 stang for a 2010 5.0 f1502wd and will start the mods asap... just have to see what people are getting out of them.
