Something isn't right... 283hp and they are "maxing out" their 550cc injectors. 450s wouldn't even be maxed out at that power level... something else is wrong with that car or something the shop is doing.

According to the RC worksheet 570cc injectors at 50psi would be required to support 310hp.

If they stuck with the stock FP/fuel rail then the numbers are reasonable, especially if they are mustang dyno numbers.

Those are the dumbest looking mufflers. I though coffee can's were an early 90's fad, like 3-spoke wheels. That muffler totally turns me off the whole car. Stupid.

Ah, the old "N-1 Style" muffler. Complete with requisite slant, to "smoothen exhaust flow." Right.

Muffler looks like ace...as do the heat extractor vents on the hood...as do the fixed headlamps. I'd take the motor, though.

Probably could get a few hp just by moving the filter away from the turbo a bit. Certainly isn't where I would put it...
