You can easily go faster than 80. I'm just saying don't cruise at that speed all day. You will still be able to do over 100
And 4.10s will get you that pick up

Anyone will fit. What's your plans for power? And you will most likely need a tranny and rear diff to support the power

Well I would be carefully with used cobra engines. They usually are ragged on hard. Your gonna spend over 10 grand easy possibly alot more by the time your done.

Eaton still makes them. You can find them on eatons site or you can look through craigslist for one. I have a friend with an eaton m90. Don't know how good it would work for you though.

Texas...not sure why you are so negative on v6 cars...but I will try to dispel some myths you have unknowingly put forward. The tranny in a v6 is not weaker than the one in a 4.6l car. In fact it is actually stronger. The t5 is the one used on 5.0l fox bodies as well as 3.8/3.9l cars. It is a very strong and capable tranny. Even the auto box used on v6 cars is stronger!! Both super six and Tom Morana sell kits to use the m112 on the 3.8/3.9l engine. Now before installing it I would highly recommend building up the bottom end first. The one thing one does have to keep in mind when building up a v6 car is when the time has come to swap out the 7.5 rear end for an 8.8 with t-lok and upgrade the brakes. Some people buy v6 cars because at the time they can't justify the added cost of a v8 car. It may cost a bit more to get a really powerful v6 car, but it can be done for a reasonable cost and if you are on a budget..then you can do a bit at a time. We really should try to help each other out and not slamming a guy for wanting to get the most out of his 6 banger. The toughest part on a v6 build up is getting a good dyno tune. Many shops claim they can tune a v6...few do it well.

I'm not negative. I'm honest. The cost to have a v6 that run fast is expensive. Near impossible on stock internals

Hmm..just every publication who has ever tested the v6 car and addressed that specific topic because for some reason it is a misguided belief put out there by v8 owners!
