Coupe engine swap???

Hello every one,
I need some info, if any one can help. I just came back from ricer hell (2 years in Japan) and the first thing I did when I got back was buy a Mustang. Unfortunately I couldn't find a Cobra or Mach-1 within my budget so I got a 2003 5spd manual 2dr coupe... Don't get me wrong I love the way this she looks, but she's a little weak... I want to start modding this under powered 3.8. Maybe a super charger, SCT Eliminator chip, fuel and ignition mods. Headers? Just some stuff to keep me occupied for a while, you know. Already have upgraded to a flow master cat back. My goal is to have her sitting at about 300 horses. And I know I could probably throw that money towards buying a GT or something but I just want to do this a project. Any thoughts about this.. Or has any one done it before I would appreciate the input.
Thanks for reading.

First things first Welcome to the site. Tons of people have done it. You can either go forced induction or N/A either way its do able. You just have to know which way you wanna go before you start.

Re: Coupe engine swap???

Thank you,
I was planning on forced induction as my goal of 300 horse power would be more difficult with out it. I don't want to run more than 12psi The problem is I cant seem to find any supercharger kits for the 3.8. I am looking into having some custom fabrication done to combat this, but that is pricey...

Im sure there are more kits out there but I own a GT. Wait for someone with a 3.8 to post. They will be a bit more help.
