Apart from maybe a tune and a supercharger kit down the track I am happy with it.

LSD would make it nice i will be doing that shortly.

I'm probably not the guy who said they wre slow before...
But they aren't rockets by any stretch of the imagination.
But they are a truly great cruiser. Plus some of the guys from ff.com.au seem to get some good power out of them with litle mods!

This is interesting. It's odd to me that you guys aren't seeing higher numbers. Over here in the US there's a growing movement of people slapping 5.4L 2v and 4v motors into our 4.6L mustangs. We've been getting numbers like 340rwhp (big cam, so-so intake, well ported 2v PI heads), 290rwhp (stock cams, ported PI heads, mustang intake), 260rwhp (bone stock motor, mustang intake, 2v PI heads). Torque numbers are all at or above 340 for those cars.

What kind of fuel blend do you guys use? Over here we usually have 90/10 petrol/ethanol or straight unleaded petrol turning in those numbers with 91-93 octane.

In any case, cam upgrades are a favorite with us in the Mustang crowd. Comp Cams makes some really nice streetable 3v cams that should bump you up 30+rwhp if the intake will flow enough.

Our dyno dynamics chassis dynos are generally said to read lower then your dynojets over there too.

Fuel wise, 10% ethanol is getting more common, has to be marked at the bowser/pump.
91oct is the standard unleaded, we have a 95octane premium, and the major servos run a 98octane 'performance' fuel.
Also 100octane ethanol blend by one major servo here.

Hazard a guess that most of the guys here would use the 95octane premium, if not the 98.
Ethanol isn't really that popular here yet, victim of a witch-hunt by the mainstream media, and unwillingness of manufacturers to support it.

describe the witch hunt... ethanol is great fuel if a little lacking in energy density. It would be nice to see those kinds of octane rating here though. We have limited 100 octane petrol availability (very limited) and 87,89, and either 91 or 93 at the pump depending on which state you're in. California has the worst fuel thanks to nutty state regulations.
