Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

So my dad has a S197 4.0L that jus came out of warrantee and the mod bug may have bitten him. He tells me today "i want 300rwhp! what do i have to do to get this?" I told him s/c or some head and cam work. Now i know that Vortech and procharger make good systems and i know that supersix motor sports make soild engine components for this car. My questions are: Are there anyother good s/c kits for this engine? Are there anyother sites that offer good engine components for this engine, not just basic bolt ons, i mean like heads, cams, maniflods? What are some common problems and things to look out for when modding a 4.0L? What are the breaking points? ect...

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

good questions, I know theres is a root blower system for it but I would probably rather do a vortech/procharger. You should be able to reach 300rwhp with those systems as the old 3.8s would top out at about 280 with 11psi~

you can try contacting supersixmotorsports.com. Keep in mind here the KEY to power and reliability is the TUNE it must be done right and it must be done by someone that KNOWS what they are doing.

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

With a Vortech you can see 300whp easily and safe.A friend had one on his 05 v6 until he wanted more and pulled the whole motor and went with a 5.4 and a KB!

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

The roots blower is by Explorer Express. My friend has one and likes it, it sounds cool too. Ive been thinking about going to supersix for heads, cams, forged pistons, and then the explorer express S/C. Here is the link if your interested.

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

11psi procharger on the 3.8 would make 300#s...

Procharger, vortehc, explorer express, and turbo(the better option)

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

the tune is no problem, i go to simpson performance in IL for all my tuning needs. good guy, good prices.

turbo is always a better option but it gets pricey, unless you know bout a kit i have yet to see.

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

Yah Andy at TMA turbos made some real nice setups for the 94-04's, but he stopped a year or 2 ago iirc...not sure if he did anything for the 4.0's though.

Check Hellion, I know they make some nice setups for 03/04 cobras and 05+ GT's.

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

I actually contacted Andy about a week ago to see If I could get hime to make me a kit for a ridiculous price..He said when I get the money he can.He also said that he would be back in 2012 with a 4.0L Kit..So ask Andy or just wait.

Re: Possible 2 boosted Mustangs in the garage..

Hes got bottemless pockets and yes he did get out ran, by me. ever since i boosted mine hes been having these ideas and different route he wants to take to get a faster car. First it was boost thins one, then its "well how much is the GT?", then its I'll just get a C5 Vette, and now its back to boosting a 4.0L
