well with just the trick flow heads came and intake package, i put down 290 hp and 325 toque i beleive. You DO NOT need a tune for h/c/i installs. After the s trim blower install on top f that, i put down 380hp and395 torque on a mustang dyno. Im not doin the blower on my stroker, however, i am using all the trick flow stuff. i had the block built for n/a. I got a bunch more crap, so ill probably start assembling the top end this weekend. heres some vids of mine from the old setups.
heres an exhaust clip after the first start with the tfs top end kit:

Heres my 91... When i got it about 4 months ago it was a stock AOD car... I swapped out the stock motor for a HCI/ 5 speed setup about 2 months ago...It still needs a few things but all & all I love it & will keep it 4 ever!!! 5 lug swap is next on the list....
Novi357 FTW post more pics. Always one of my favorites on SVTP.
So when would you need a tune then? I know on my 04 cobra if I change anything that adds more air it needs to be retuned. Are these cars easier to tune and more forgiving to mods?
BTW, you fox sounds sweet!!
