    I am buying my parts list and so far we already have
    BBK LT headers
    exhaust
    Boss 302 intake
    BBK 90mm throttle body
    JLT CAI
    both sides catch can
    ngauge with lund tune

    I'm unsure as to which injectors to go with if anyone has the right ones in mind?

    Anything else I'm forgetting?

    Stock are fine on pump gas, Ford lu47 are good for e85, if you going to forced induction then you need some big boys.

    I'd focus on suspension parts now..

    I've got my 830hp 15" Camaro SS. While she doesn't need nor want hers that fast I'm just wanting her to get a little more lol. she runs 91-92 octane and the motor will not be opened up so if I don't need any bigger injectors then that's a plus!. we have a set of Eibach springs ready to go on and I am purchasing front camber caster plates also. Do I need anything for the rear? 01414_Aev6lJ1TIa_600x450.jpg image1.jpeg

    BBK Long Tubes are a more of a budget header, I would personally ditch the BOSS manifold and BBK throttle body and apply that money towards a set of KOOKS LT Headers, and purchase a ported 18' Manifold, and don't lock the runner controls. Lund tune on 93, if you want a little more punch add 47lb injectors and get a flex fuel tune from Lund and call it a day. Work on IRS suspension mods if you plan to track the car. The JLT will work fine, or you can get a stock airbox from an 18-19 GT which has a larger MAF diameter than 15-17 GT's Drop in K&N

    That’s the first thing that jumped out. The 2018 GT IM going to make more power throughout the powerband while being 2-3 times less.

    Ditch the BOSS intake for the ported 2018.
    Ditch the driver's side catch can unless you're boosted.
    Wouldn't bother with the throttle body unless boosted as well.
    LU47 injectors to run E85.

    Everything else is fine. Not sure how fitment is on BBK headers.

    yes she will never be boosted or run anything other that 92. I'm new to the mustang side of things so this is all new to me. I'll deffinatley look for a ported new intake and ditch the boss..

    I'm personally happy with my BBK headers. Save the money and get the 18 manifold, take that money and spend on rear suspension upgrades.

    Did you gain much with 47# injectors?

    Youll need the LU47s for E85.

    18 mani on E85 and a Lund or PBD tune will make a massive difference.

    As to rear suspension I'd get BMR cradle lockouts & CB006 front 4 pt. brace. These will help with the twisty's.

    Pretty much my thoughts exactly here. Save a few bucks getting ported 18 mani and losing the driver side catch can, consider ARH or Kooks for the headers. Wouldn't touch the injectors unless going to corn. CAI open to debate, if not in a warmer climate then a big open one like JLT is fine. Tune from one of the majors. IRS parts such as BMR CB005 or Steeda stop the hop kit for starters. Good tires will go along way as well.

    The BBK headers are fine. Don't get caught up in the header debate. They are all pretty much copies of each other, since there is a finite amount of space to place aftermarket headers in the engine bay anyways. Take that 800.00 header savings and buy a good intake manifold. Way more power in that design, than headers.

    You dont gain anything with injectors. Just able to flow more fuel to run e85 which is were you make gains

    Ported 2018 manifold if you are looking for best bang for the buck. Ported CJ manifold for best N/A results. GT350 manifold is good too.

    PMAS intake.

    Skip the TB or get the stock one ported

    1 7/8 headers over 1 3/4

    E85 flex fuel tune if easily accessible (will need injectors then)

    Headers, you can see in my signature what my preference is. Kooks is also great.

    Go join the All Motors Facebook page and soak up the knowledge there. Hardcore N/A guys.

    Also wondering if I need a harness for the 18' manifold or get the lockout plates?

    i think most will say either lock out or ask your tuner which may lead to locking them out. If it comes to your preference from your tuner then I guess it'll depend on you and how you(or wife) want the drivability
