So I have just recently dropped my car off at "Mustang Muscle in High Ridge, Missouri". they are adding a few things and finally dialing everything in on dyno. my big question...what more can i do N/A to get gains. When I get my car back and have Final HP/TQ #'s i will post them.
Thanks in advance for anyone giving me advice, much appreciated.

Cams, baby. Cams. 4v can return major gains with better cams. Factory cams are not exceptional. Will need to do springs with any cam worth doing. Lots of cam with a 4v will reduce low rpm power but with IMRC plates still in the mix you'll probably have the best of both worlds. If you put fat cams in it you'll probably start running at the limit of or exceeding the capacity of your 24# injectors so you will likely need to go to 30's or slightly higher. My 02 v4 swapped GT needs more injector and it's pushing 330rwhp on 24's.

Going to need a tune. TB I'd skip. It's just money for nothing.

If you put an electric water pump on you won't need a retune. It has no effect on the tune at all.
