Trick flow top end kit 1996 4.6

I'm going to do the trick flow top end kit but I don't think the bottom end will hold. It's all stock and I don't know what size pistons rods or crank to get. Don't know what hp the stock crank can hold. I've been looking but don't know what to buy. Don't want to get the wrong thing and the top end kit not work. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

As long as you stay naturally aspirated you should be fine. I don't think the 4.6 can get enough power naturally to ruin the motor.

It's not just about power, you have to be careful with revs on a stock bottom end. The specialist that I know works closely with Sean Hyland and is adamant you should not rev over 6,000 rpm as it will eventually lead to bottom end failure. I quite fancy the trick flow but with peak power looking to be in the 5,800 to 6,200 rpm range with the PI intake you will really need to upgrade the bottom end.

I was reading on a thread a guy had a pi swap kit installed by ford and his piston shattered. Not sure if it was how he was driving it or not I just want to have that problem. And I've owned a 2003 mustang gt so I drive right. Get on it when needed. Thanks for the help.
