Some people go into the 11's with the stock cam, it is actually pretty good for a stock part.

I will break into the 12's here pretty soon with ported stock heads,explorer intake and stock cam and rockers.

I think the intake is the most restrictive part of the stock 5.0 engine.

Adding an aftermarket intake with a 65mm TB is good for a few horsies which proves that the stock intake was choking the stock heads somewhat.

Obviosly the heads have the most effect on performance if You put AFR 165's on with a stock intake there is no doubt you would go quite a bit faster but you will not reach your full potential.

Heads and intake should be upgraded at the same time. So that your car reaches its full potential.

92' LX-Big brakes, Lots and lots of suspension, GT40X heads, Ported cobra intake, stock cam, Vortech SC trim.
00' Lightning-Stock
88'CRX-13 second ego killer
