Bore out a 4.6?

So in another thread I saw one post talking about safely boring the 4.6 3v to 5.1. I'm just wanting more info on that statement, if its safe, what else would I need to change in order to make the boring effective and such.

That engine was stroked, not just bored out. They still didn't get 400rwhp. SC is a better and cheaper deal.

I ask this because I have my own machining equipment and it would be cheaper for me to bore and stroke than to sc.

------------
That and I may S/C it later on when I got more extra money to spend haha.

That I can, but I am not certain on the dimensions. As also a bit nervous about working on my car. Doing this project would be the first time Im going to do something like this. I've only used autocad diagrams to make things never to change an engine part though.

Stroker kits are thousands. If money isn't an issue, do you.
