The V6 block is said to be better built than a 5.0 block, but that could just
mean in practical terms that it too would split in 1/2 at 500 RWHP too.
That would mean it is stronger in terms that each cylinder can handle
more HP than a 5.0 on a per-cylinder basis... but Matt is over that!
SC blocks are heavier and stronger, that is what the 99^ blocks are
patterned after according to Pete (who works at Ford) and he said it
was 99-04 blocks that were strongest, however 01-04 were internally
balanced which helps too. (less stress on mains and such)

To be safe Matt will probably yank the intakes and inspect the lifter valley,
that is where the blocks develop cracks. He works for Delk and they have
probably split several 5.0

as far as i know, in 96, ford started using the SC block and head design in all the RWD 3.8L cars, but in 99, they were further refined, thats what i gathered in my research

Matt may have exceeded that 500rwhp mark, but it doesnt always mean the block will last, i have seen 750rwhp out of a stock block, and it lasted for almost a racing season, when it went, it went with a bang though, it was nasty

That would be even better! 96-04 is a lot of blocks to choose from...

I know you are right about the heads, they have the SC head's deck surface
but I dunno about heat treating... that would be nice! They also have the 7mm
valvestem upgrades starting in 1996 which the SC heads did not have.

interesting, i wasnt aware of the heat treating, ill see if i can find more info

its funny, when youre car doesnt have any of the good 3.8L stuff, you learn a good amount about the stuff others take for granted and care less about

Great work Matt! Is this essentially the same top end that you used on the NA
3.8 that did so well? Stock valves and same port work? It's really doing well if
it is! Keep up the good work!

yea its the same heads,cam and lower intake that i used on the N/A setup. it still has the stock 94-95 valves and the same port work. the only difference is the box upper intake that i made for it.

If you ever want to BV those heads and max out the lower give
me a call and I can fill you in on the peculiarities of those 2 items
