Manual BA GT mods

hey guys,
how much extra power would u think a manual gt would have with these mods:
SS inductions cold air intake system
BMC air filter
SS inductions BIG Mouth 80mm throttle body
Full herrod twin exhaust system with quad pipes

How much extra power would this give a GT?
and how much extra power (on top of these mods) would u get by adding an 'edit'

Thanx for your replies, Venom

Re: Manual BA GT mods

I have a GT 6speed man with

cold air
high flow pod filter
herrod snorkel
helix spacer
herrod cats back exhaust
stealth ECU tune

All this was around $3,500

Performance difference is very noticable with the boss coming alive. Bottom end response has improved dramatically and the extra 500rpm up top is awesome.

I have flashed my car back to standard and the power deliverly winds up at 4k. With the tuner the delivery is linear and just keeps rushing up.

I ran a 05 WRX with exhaust mod, pumped him hard. It was a real whipping, poor guy.


If you ran quad pipes (which is a full system) on top of these mods the car would be an animal. It would be a 12's second car.

Re: Manual BA GT mods

I went from 215 RWKW up to 244RWKW with,
1. "Redback" cat back system,
2. SS cold air induction,
3. BMC pod filter,
4. Helix spacer,
5. Herrod power snorkle,
so a gain of 29 RWKW (12% gain) and the loss of $1700. The thing to remember is that every car is different, getting the headers done and an edit (herrod) will make a lot more RWKW gain, I think on average they are getting 40RWKW from the edit alone!

But remember messing with the computer is the death blow for your warranty, unless Ford do it.

Re: Manual BA GT mods

The computer flash is called Stealth for a reason. Ford dealerships have no idea and that's a fact.
