Went by the machine shop and payed for it. Now I'm broke so I'm not sure if I will be able to dyno it. Either way I hope to have it in the car and running within 2 or 3 weeks.

It's got the new custom ground solid cam, JE pistons with 10.5:1 compression (vs. about 9.3:1 before), stiffer valve springs (Crane 99895's) along with titanium retainers to control the valvetrain, and I am going to be using 2" Crites headers in place of my 1-3/4" Hookers.

Has anybody used the Crites headers in a cougar or mustang? I heard I might have to grind the shock tower brace down a bit for clearance.
