It would have to make around 275HP to run the numbers you listed. I would say it was doable.

Absolutely. I had a 1992 5.0L coupe that went into the 13.90's on street tires in absolute factory trim. Had only ditched the dopey airbox silencer. Gears were FAR from optimum. The car you describe should do it fairly easily.

The 1.7 will help also cut the egr bumps out of the exhaust side.... if you find your self looking to upgrade to gt40 or gt40p heads remember the stock springs on those will not even support the lift of the stock H.O. cam and a spring upgrade is needed

I have heard that the Mercury Mountaineer 5.0 heads are good also, if you can score a set. They are GT40P's I believe.

My Maverick is right at 2900# stock Explorer short block, regular E7 heads (not Explorer) 3.00 gears. Will run 14.0's, high 8's in the 1/8. More cam of course, and possibly more gear would help, but I like driving it to any track, even out of state to race. Hooks on regular street tires too.
