My build plan!

So after long debate and somewhat sleepless nights (yes debating in car parts keeps me up lol) I have a plan for the car. It will be somewhat of a slow build due to budget. First off within the next two weeks a mmr short block will be purchased and a new clutch. That's phase one haha, after that comes some type of FI not sure which way I'm going to go or might just throw some bolt ons on it and some spray. Either way I am starting off with a solid foundation.

If you are starting with a shortblock, might as well just build your own motor ground up.

Id forge your internals, get full bolt ons, then upgrade the suspension some and throw on a supercharger.
Or....you could just supercharge now, then save up money until your stock internals go and forge then crank up the boost.

Yeah that's my plan, the short block I'm looking at is plenty for my application. forged rods and pistons and new ford racing crank. plenty for all I'll ever want in a daily driver. the reason I'm not going forced induction now is because one the motor has 100k miles as of about 2 weeks ago, and for 89k of them I have no idea the maintenance and rough beating on it and I'm not taking a chance, secondly we did a compression test and the numbers weren't so hot.
