So im at a crossroads I've had my 2000 v6 mustang
for a while and either I pull the plug and do the m112 adapter and fully build a 4.3l stroker or I swap in a 351. Ik the details to each one and my goal is 350-400hp. ik the stock bottom end of the 3.8l can handle 350rwhp so theres my goal and the adapter kits been known to make 425 on a stock motor. But at the same time would a 351 be more reliable since the bottom end is good till about 600hp and the block is good till 800hp? Either case id be building a separate block and dropping it in. So either I drop in the same block with a supercharger on it and everything bolts up or I drop in a 351 and ill have to change my ecu and engine harness. In both cases im doing a mm tubular k-member(to lower the motor), convertible motor mounts (to lower the motor), a t-56 swap, and putting a larger radiator in to cool the motor, bigger fuel pump (for what im wanting a 255lph will do just fine), coil overs will be going on to lower the car, and im putting an irs in the rear for better handling. It all comes down to which of the motors. Your thoughts on either one would be appreciated.
