Paul Riva's 1995 Mustang GT 'vert's NA 331ci combo on the dyno and street

This is a video of my NA 331ci setup on the Dyno and on the street showing its mild manners. The car has run 11.5 at 121mph with this setup and I finally got a chance to see just how much power it was putting down. Previously this combo made 380rwhp/380rwtq with AFR 165 heads, I have since swapped them out for a set of AFR 185 competition heads and probe shaft mount rockers. I knew the car was substantialy stronger, but now I have hard data to back it up. This combo was never intended to be a NA combo as I bought a PTK single turbo kit for the car before I even built this setup. The car was down for 2yrs so I decided to just throw it together NA and run it this way until I had the funds for the fuel system needed for the turbo. Its been so fun and headache free that I've kept it NA for nearly 3 yrs now! I still have a T76 single turbo setup for it, but when I keep getting numbers like this I'm inclinded to keep it NA and avoid the associated issues that are bound to happen when the turbo goes on. I NEVER thought I would see results anywhere near this with an NA stroker, even a NA dedicated one. If I had known that numbers and streetability like this were possible I'd have never bought the turbo and this combo would be a 10.5:1 363 NA mill right now.

1995 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Convertible Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
1995 was the last year of the 5.0 before they started implementing the 4.6 later that year with minor improvements in performance. As I mention in the video, the 5.0 has quite a unique sound that is different from the 4.6. I actually insert a comparison engine clip from a 1998 GT. The 5.0s have an amazing sound, especially with the flowmaster Exhausts this GT is fitted with. In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1995 Ford Mustang GT 5.0. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
