Well I sent an email to Nick with some information and aspirations. I'm asking for his opinion because after reading all his articles and looking through his services and parts.. There is a stage II head and stage II cam combo for like $2k that looks great. And I can just sell my heads off for money back. But with that combo he replaces and reinforces a lot of parts plus port and polish, cam install plus degree. Then it's just a matter of swapping heads out.

Re: Tax Return Dilemma!

yeah its not a bad deal..just remember you will need a head change kit along with the other gaskets if you do the theads..personally to me its not worth takeing the heads off if you plan on doing a built motor later..then you can build the motor complete on a stand the drop it in...good luck i sent you a pm btw

Re: Tax Return Dilemma!

Should I go ahead and get forged internals since I'll have the heads out and be down there? Manley 4.6L Forged Steel H-Beam Connecting Rods w/22mm Pin [MAN-14042-8] : Lethal Performance, Performance parts for Ford Mustangs

Re: Tax Return Dilemma!

That is gonna be a whole lotta extra work. You will have to pull the whole motor out. And it will be very expensive. What are you end power goals?

That was my concern with that. I'm trying to determine what direction I want to go right now because I could just save all this money right now and take the car off insurance since I'm joining the Coast guard. And since I'll have no expenses really, while active duty, I can keep saving and might end up just selling this car and finding myself a low miles Cobra. I'm at a huge cross-roads; kinda at the point where I waited this long do do big engine work to my GT, why not just wait a little longer and buy a Cobra?

Oh, and I wanted to end up around 300-340rwhp, with a possible turbo in the future(which is why I was gonna knock out forged internals while down there.)

Re: Tax Return Dilemma!

Well if you want to buy a Cobra then i wouldnt do the internals. But if you decide to keep your GT and go turbo then if you have the cash and time you may as well. But fyi you can easily reach 300-340rwhp with your stock bottom end and no forced induction
