To Hotdogstand- So would you say it would be safe for a 120 HP tune with EFI Live? And also with adding that much HP can the head studs handle it? Thanks for the information man!

I wanna know how much HP i would gain if i went with EFI live and since everyting is stock (turbo, engine, and transmisson) is it safe?
What's involved with a "high air flow kit"? It's not always about hp numbers. A good efi tune will give you smoother and cleaner power with decent egts and little smoke which means efficiency.

A 120 tune from a good EFI live tuner would most likely be fine on your stock trans, I've run worse on mine and she's still holding up *knocks on wood*. The stock bottom end is good for a lot more power than you'll be making with a stock turbo/trans. These aren't Ford's, either, you shouldn't need to upgrade head studs any time soon, but if you're taking the heads off for any reason, you may as well do It while you're in there.
