I would say full exhaust, with headers, hi-flow cats and mufler. A supercharger, and the air intake to go with it. Go to the mustang sites and see what they are doing.

Get a twin turbo setup from Squires Turbo Systems. On the F150 5.4L, they went from Rear Wheel Horsepower: 219 Rear Wheel Torque: 295 to Rear Wheel Horsepower: 348 Rear Wheel Torque: 450

They have a package out now for the 6.2L now that makes 600hp. It won't be long before they offer something for the 5.0

I wonder how much that would cost? Might be better to run with an eco from the start and add a tune. This is on a cost based assumption.

My bad, the numbers I quoted were a single rear turbo system, and those run about $4,995.00.

I can't imagine what a 5.0 with a twin turbo setup would put out... 700... 800hp???
