GT40X heads with Typhoon intake

Hello all, i am new to this forum and i have been wondering about my current set-up that i hope to have in the next year... 1995 Mustang GT

Heads~ GT40X306
Intake~ Typhoon
Cam~ Comps 35-312-8 (even thought about either the X-cam or Z-cam)
CR~ 11:1

along with supporting mods, 30 lb injectors and 190 internal fuel pump

believe me i am aware of better heads out there and intakes, however i am just trying to get this car better than stock with any and all aftermarket parts i can think of, even if it's from ford, in order to get to at least 300 to the wheels, if not better. i have thought of ways to decrease weight in the front end and to keep it safe for my kids as well.

please do not stray to much off topic and thanks ahead of time

I am building a mild 95 gt and after my research decided to go with the Steeda 19 to keep the stock ecu happy and still be able to pass smog. It seems to be one of the only aftermarket cams that plays nice with an un tuned 94/95 ecu. I don't know anything about your comp cam at all. You might have to get a tune.

The X heads are nice quality and good for a mild build. A couple of my friends have them and I've had the Gt40Y's and had no problems.

The Typhoon intakes are a bit of a crap shoot. I've had a couple and they were ok after I cleaned up all the casting flash. I'd never buy one new and unless I could get one cheap I'd rather have a Exploder intake for the same/less money.

LOL , then use a different cam , way too much lift for that setup IMO , the .544 would be good though trust me , my .542 lift cam setup also higher compression has dynoed 320 rwhp 342 rwtq SAE with a smaller intake than you are running , larger cam is going to slow air flow and make it a dog off the line

I just sold 2 typhoon intakes for $100 for a cast and 125 for polished. Unless you have to have new you can pick one of these up cheap.

I found one here on the classifieds and another on craigslist. Keep your eyes open for bargains before you start your build. As soon as you really NEED a part you won't find it used and will have to pay retail....

Even with 11:1 I doubt you'll see 300whp. The combo will probably run good enough provided the typhoon doesn't have issues with the ports and the cam selection is good. If you're going off the shelf with cams, look at the Comp Xtreme Energy line. Had very good luck with a XE270HR-112.

Why are you chasing a measurement? From your mod list, you don't have gears yet.
3.55 or 3.73, take your pick. I bet this will register on the SOTPM better than the HCI work you're talking about.

Cruising RPM at 70mph with 3.73s and a T-5z with a stock overdrive is going to be around 2300RPM depending on tire size.
