When building an NA setup, every piece counts.. in the boosted realm, who gives a **** about the little things. But in reality, every part matters for a car to make power without boost. 5whp is only 5 whp... but if you skip out on 5 pieces that only give u 5whp... then u have just lost 25whp... 25whp to an NA car... is huge. All im saying
Look at all the fastest 5.0's none are running the TB. The results showed no gains when combined with the Boss intake. Even though the makers of the TB said different. When shops and others actually tested it showed none.

I am just speaking what it is ... I though 5.0s were trapping 115plus all day but nope, I guess that's with weight reduction and 15s all around
And I love how you keep adding mods now it has weight reductoion and 15's all around. Funny 15's don't fit in the front of teh 5.0 with out swapping brakes. Which most don't do. Cause they don't want to spend 600 on after market brakes or swap to smaller 05-10 brakes. And yes with mods you listed he should trap least 115. But to many things come into play. trap prep, DA, driver, tune, etc.

these are the two fastest bolt on 5.0's. Neither have a TB. wonder why. search and see all the big shops even tested it and said it was worthless in a few threads on S197/Modularfords/SVT

Maybe once get to point of JPC's car there may be some gains with the TB. As they run it. BUt bolt ons alone have shown none.

With all due respect to you and the shops, i humbly disagree. Im also speaking from having ported heads and bigger cams out of the box. The only shop i really give any attention to for NA 5.0s is JPC. They actually build FAST cars and not just typical bolt on consumer cars.

No I said I guess the only way they'll trap 115 is with weight reduction and 15s all around, I never said that it has weight reduction or 15s ...... Btw let's be real ... If I was to have headers and a CAI I think I could trap what that 5.0 was trapping that night

A LT/CAI/Tuned L99 will NEVER trap 115. You'd be lucky to trap 112 on a good day.

You'd need skinnies and gears to even get close to 115.

He didn't owns nobody ... The guy sucks at racing that he can't get out of the 13s he thinks just because he berly breaks 13s everybody should run 14s with less mods ..... He is a ******* hater, that's all it is, I ain't tripping because ppl always gives him **** about his POS 5gen and now he is trying to do the same me

only one way to find out... Actually do it. Either strap some headers and wheels/tires to it and trap 115 and prove them wrong. Or do that and not trap 115 and prove them right. Either way. Just do it.. internet what ifs will never be a convincing arguement.

112 is on a good day.

Stock L99 gearing is very limited and pretty much complete **** for 1/4 mile. That with your weight is just a hindrance. I bet with stock gearing I couldn't even break 125 with my current setup yet I bet I'm knocking on 130 with my current setup. Maybe I can even GET 130-131 with slicks.

Look what they do. Even with there bolt on cars they don't use the TB. Not even with there 1000whp Paxton car. And respect to them only? They are nowwhere closest to the fastest 5.0's. Also they called in Jon Lund to help with there tuning for the n/a car that ran 9's. But it isn't really a 5.0 now. Its a stroker motor/gutted track only car. They haven't touched any other record for the 5.0's. Wonder why they don't hold none these records when comes to the 5.0? They are a good shop just not the best.

Dude the thing I have faith on what I have and on what I have ran with this car 12.5 @ 110 on a alright day ... If I was to run in a -1000 da I could do a lil better and the lowest I trap on a shitty day is 108 ,,,,, so I am in between 108-110 right now and I am more then positive I can get it to go 113-115 with just bolt ons ... With out no weight reduction ..... Now weight reduction I bever done that and never will ... I like my car as I drive it daily and that's it

You. Need. New. Gears. For. 115.

Power is fine.

Gears. Are. Not.

So do you have any proof of these runs? Guess the rest the 5th Gen guys are doing it wrong.

Also Evan the TB has been tested on the Boss. And then again it did nothing.
