Very nice v6 pack. I've heard of people doing the t-bird swap let me know how it turns out. Might recommend it to my v6 customers, for performer mods. Then again if I had a v6 I'd probably do the swap too.

That's a good looking car, is it the one getting the t-bird swap? On a side note I think it could really use a GT or Mach 1 rear spoiler. It will help even out the overall appearance of the car.

Lol all good bud, I have dropped the motor in and going to finish splicing wiring harness and plugging together this weekend. I am having issues weather or not I should use tbird computer or mustang computer seeing as how I have the newer theft stuff to worry about.. But then I just have to run my vacuums and secure my top end and play with the tune.

I just did some research that little supercharger is a beast! It can make 12lbs of boost, and it's tiny which is very rare. Are you putting the entire v6 swap or just the supercharger kit? Let me know about it. A lot of v6 mustang owners in my town will be interested in this.

I am doing the entire motor swap form a 1995 super coupe tbird, I believe that's the 3rd or 4th gen set up to w/36lbs injectors Ect..

My reasoning for the entire swap v.s. Top end conversion was for the amount of extra work to ensure my stock shorty block would fall apart on me when I pressed the pedal. The 95's came stock wit hardened externals.. After I got what I wanted I still ended up rebuilding the already forged internals with new ones and tried to clean it up while everything was somewhat easy access

The power figures are what have me wondering 12lbs of boost and only 210 hp doesn't sound right to me. Either it's total bull or it has the lowest compression in the world. If you have a donor car that you're getting parts from get the IRS out first before its scraped. Later down the road maybe do an IRS swap take it to a circuit track and you'll surprise a lot of people.

The super coupe t-birds had IRS in them. And is the engine getting modded or keeping stock?
Ps love the name you gave it.

Until I get am able to drive it I'm going to keep it stock. Once I know it's running and back to mechanically sound..the conversation alone is the biggest project I've ever done on my own before lol but it's coming along. My main problem is never having enough MONEY haha

Bro everyone has that problem, I need around $30k to build my Roush the way I want it. But that supercharged v6 makes an impressive torque figure (315) that's more than the gt of the new edge era. But some mods to consider, cams and long tubes will wake up the beastly little six banger.

I did put a highrise cam it the block when I did the internals, and I did have a set of long tube headers I was gonna put on but with the super 10's already on it I don't want it too raspy.. Like a wanna be v8. So I just sold them to my buddy who has a next to stock 99

The long tubes will help it flow better and make some more power. But then again it's stout to begin with.

I might end up going back for long tubes. I'm not swearing them off or anything.

Is the engine in the car now? Did you have it blueprinted and balanced?

If it's basically stock then a blue print isn't needed. Blue print is like a parts explosion of your engine with the mods you've done to it and the adjustments you've made to it. Dad has a built Porsche that has an ungodly amount of work done. He had it blue printed in case something happened to the engine he could go in a fix it. For example on his engine you have to stretch the rods (has Carrillo rods in it) after the engine was built he took it to road Atlanta and the engine blew up because one of the rods wasn't stretched properly. Balancing the engine is exactly how it sounds. Sometimes an engine is has uneven weight distribution inside and out of it. When everything is balanced the car will handle and preform better because of it.

That's impressive, my main question is how much for the 4.3 kit? And those tbird a are a lot heavier than my mustang which stock weighs in at like 3100lbs I have stripped it down 300lbs or so tho and the tbirds weighed about 3900 If I remember right that little bit of difference is a plus compared to pimping the tbird itself.

Don't forget you have also gained a little you have that supercharger and an intercooler now which will add some. But your car would be faster with less weight than that t-bird.

"Blueprinting" typically consists of, setting the correct piston height, setting the correct piston to cylinder wall tolerances, measuring compression ratio's, line honing the main tunnels of the block, degreeing the camshaft, etc. It is, basically, setting all of the engine tolerances to a state of perfection which can not be achieved on a production line.
Blueprinting is very time consuming and, depending on the amount of work done, is a major factor in the cost of building a truly high performance engine.

Balancing the complete rotating assembly (Crank, rods, pistons, harmonic balancer, and flywheel/flexplate) is required when building the assembly from aftermarket parts, or, even when replacing just some of the parts, as none of the parts are balanced as an assembly like the factory pieces are. It can even be beneficial to re-balance the factory rotating assemblies, because, again, the engines are built on an assembly line and the balancing isn't always perfect.
