Laying out the plans-

I'm really trying to figure out which direction I want to move into. My engine has 112k. I could rebuild it and throw forged internals, heads, supercharger..or go for am engine swap to something like a termi engine or even the new Coyote engines (if it fits, haven't done much research)? Just trying to figure out if it's even worth it to keep this car and do these things or to drive it and save up, sell it, and get a Cobra or something.

Only thing I really like about myself rebuilding it and building the car up is that I know the car's past. If I were to buy a Cobra or something.. I would have no idea what has been done to it or how it was treated.

Re: Laying out the plans-

well any direction you want to go. keep in mind 4v parts are more expensive. btw, the new 5.0 will fit. seen the swap in a bullitt.

Heard that.

And if I keep my car I have to go about getting a new clutch and upgrade the tranny. Plus new axels probably..and redo the whole suspension (it needs it)

Re: Laying out the plans-

it can be done for a reasonable price, there are parts always being sold for a good price on all forums. lay your plans out on the table and sit there and think about it.

That bullitt with the 5.0 is in tampa. Ive seen it several times at the shop its in. Very lengthy complicated install. A 4 valve swap is so much easier and gains are actually better

Your Mach is really nice, but I don't have the money right now. :p these plans are set to unfold over the next year or two.

I don't want to do that simply for the fact that I don't know what they did to it or how they've treated it... Plus I always like my vehicles built the way they are with my own hands, not bought that way. :3 Idk, I know it's a waste of money in the end... Lol. But we all waste money somehow.

Just saw a mustang selling on ebaymotors tonight... 01 cobra with a race engine making 700, capable of making the procharger f1 make 1000hp... $24000 dollars... Sounds like a good deal with 1500miles on the engine.
