Hey congrats and welcome. They become a money pit fast as its never a enough lol.. You can make all the power you want with a 5.0. The problem is when you start to upgrade one part everything else goes with it. I.E. the trans can only handle so much...the rear drum brakes for on and so on. A bolt on super charger exhaust good clutch is the easiest. Do lots of research before you start the money will go fast. You can find out lots of info from the members build page as well. This is a really great site for help. Add a few pics of the car too when you can
