Lightbulb Thinking of rebuilding 02 V8

Has anyone rebuilt a 99-04 engine? What was the RWHP gain from it? and what did they do it? Like adding Cams, Heads, Timing Chain, Turbo, Anything else you guys can think of that I haven't that would help me gt the most HP out it. So that I don't have to buy a Cobra engine. And that I don't crack or break my engine. I did however heard of STS turbos that could help. And thought to get that put on after let me know if anyone in here has that on their mustang on this yr model and v8 car. So, that I know what I am working with. They told me twins would cost 3 grand and extra 1500 for single. So might go that route. Just to add some HP. Let me know first if anyone rebuilt an engine of this yr model what details as above. than adding turbos.

First thing you need to do is decide for sure if you're going to go forced induction or n/a. The builds are very different once you start building the top end of the motor.

Re: Thinking of rebuilding 02 V8

I think after it's said and done, depending on how crazy you get with the engine building and FI, you could probably buy a 03/04 cobra engine/transmission. MPS has a complete setup - engine, transmission, wiring, ecu etc for 10.5K. I would guess by the time you buy all the engine stuff, FI components, support items, pay for install (if you're having a shop do it) and misc costs, you'd be at that number or above.

Just putting it out there, there are a lot of people who have built their 2v's and made decent numbers. It's all in what you want to do.

Re: Thinking of rebuilding 02 V8

Well, That was my qeustion I wanted to do so. First I wanted to buy a Cobra SVT engine but I can see now I won't have the money to buy the engine. I did however call up a dealer they said cost up to 6500 bucks maybe 7 grand from a deal everything you need the charger was inlcuded. I will save I have thought about saving my money just putting my timing chain back on my car for now. And for now it will have to be will be. And I will save and yes like I said and another post as I am on disability and had bad times needing some help. I am going to clear my background. get a job. to help. Thanks I will try every thing possible that you guys helped.

Re: Thinking of rebuilding 02 V8

That's the thing about seriously modding your car. It's better to establish a budget, save until you've met that amount, do ample research on parts/labor, unexpected costs and misc items and then begin the project. If you start buying bits here and there and and you're not sure what you really want to do, you might just end up hurting your wallet and not end up with what you really wanted out of your project.

It's better to have a solid base and financial stability especially in these times, because let's face it, cars are money pits, and the cost can be overwhelming sometimes.

Good luck to you with whatever you decide, and don't hesitate to ask about anything else related to your project

If you are boosting it you should find cams for boost and heads that will flow accordingly. There are so many variables that you need to have a solid plan and money to see it thru to the end or you will either be disappointed of you will have a combo that doesn't work or isn't finished
