thought I would share this for those who are interested.
got the new cam/headers/exhaust done and finally tuned. Straightline Performance did a great job getting the rig to run right and it finally feels pretty strong.
lost the dyno sheet, but it put down 306hp and all through a 1 ton drivetrain, an Atlas t-case, TH350 and 35" tires (run 42s, but didn't want to be a safety issue trying to spin that large of a tire that fast on a dyno). pretty happy with the results overall. mustang dyno used
230/224, LSA 112+2, .591/.581
pretty sure dual patriot springs and not sure what rods they went with
block hugger headers (space issue)
rig weighs about 5800# and moves out pretty good for a fatass idle short run dyno run
thanks to Mike and Nick for putting up with me
