Engine build - All taken apart

Here is my project (2 weeks in) so far. It's all taken apart. The heads are being machined right now and new springs being put in them. The block is going in next week to be machined and board.

Ya I'm looking in to using my forged crank though. Idk yet if it will work. I plan on pushing around 650-700 hp with turbo and possibly changing my fuel system to e85. But I'm swapping my v6 so it's goin to be a while

Ya it's a lot of hp. But like I said, I still have a ways to go. And money to save. Breaking it down was the easiest part!

It would be badass. My 250 has one and it runs like a raped ape, and It's sitting on 37"s .

I've thought about stroking it but I've just read/heard about it being more of a pain in the a** than anything. Especially since it's going to stay a dd

That is true. I've never heard of it that's for sure. I like that idea tho. It would def be awesome. Is it just a thought or do you plan in eventually doing it?

Ill do it after I get a new daily ... I sell public safety wireless communications equipment so I'm looking at a few 98+ model crown Vic's .... Planning on wrapping it in flat black and out fitting it w wig wags and a smoked thin light bar to show off what my company does (basically mimic a cop car but more aggressive ) will b a cool daily ... Once I do that I'll tear the car down ... My first purchase is going to b a full race air bag suspension set up tho... Motor will come much later
