Well, if you want a quick list:
• Custom true dual exhaust $400-500
• Either bore your 3.8 $500-600 or get a 4.2 $300-500 out of a f150
• Stroker kit $500-$800
• Bama tuner $300
• Gt rear end $500-600 or Auburn tlok and 3.73 gears $600
• Bigger fuel pump
• Manual- Centerforce clutch kit/steeda short shifter $500
• Automatic- Torque converter $350

Get on supersixmotorsport
But your looking at about 5k into the engine alone that is doing all the work yourself. This is if u get all new pistons rods heads lower/upper ported intakes, cams.
Then calculated 1k into the rear end.
For big power idk if ur tranny will hold up.
So calculate 2k for a rebuild/beefing up.
A bama tune won't do you, look for vmptuning they do a lot more custom tunes will run 100$
Then go for a dyno. 300-600
Then supporting mods may run you 2k
Suspension and the bolt ons you need

Also my prices are meant for all the power you can squeeze out of it. If u just want a 4.2l stroker and not looking to make big power then ur looking at about 2-3k

Do you all think it would be more cost effective to get a gt donor or stroke? I'm looking to have roughly 350-400 hp when all is said and done

Gt donor will cost more. You need literally everything beside the body and chassis.
It will cost a bunch, and I wouldn't trust just a donor engine and blah blah, you'll wanna rebuild it.
Just do a 4.2l stroker low compression and a pro charger or u can do 13;1 compression and be making 360rwho maybe with all bolt ons,
With the engine blower rear end and tranny upgrades you'll be looking at 15k total, but who all can say they have a 4.2l stroker?

Re: Stoker

You could do a junk yard stroker kit?
just get the 4.2 crank pistons and connecting rods and throw them in your v6. should be alot cheaper but your taking a little risk buying used parts. The cranks are pretty strong though so just make sure you get good pistons and rods.

Yes you could, but as u stated it would be risky to use used parts, and stroking a 3.8 up to a 4.2 and having it resleeved and new pistons put in will cost as much as having a used 4.2 resleeved and having pistons put in(considering u buy the 4.2).
I'm gonna buy a used 3.8 or 4.2 block.
Send it in for a good cleaning, or acid dip, boring(3.8 only)
Resleeving with pistons, have them do rods.
I want mine totally "New" once all said and done.

Re: Stoker

I don't think machining and resleeving the block would be needed maybe recommended but if you on a tight budget, Then a junk yard stroker kit should be ok.
or do half of it and just buy a used crank then buy new pistons and rods.

It's not required just something I would recommend for the best fit and smoothness of the walls. But I bet it's been done on a tight budget
