studs for the engine

Im wondering when the best time to re stud the engine is. Will our motors hold up to 400rwhp without insyalling new studs?

Might as well stud it if it's torn down and you can budget it

Not necessary but hold up much longer.. Several older mustangs came with forged rotating assemblies stock.. You will have to look into the newer productions I'm not to familiar

Well they allow you to run more boost which means more power, so I would say yes.

I'm gonna tell you what I plan on doing.

I'm gonna add either a supercharger or turbo (still undecided) to my stock motor(with conservative boost and tune)...I know it's not going to hold up forever and I'm ok with that. While I'm running it like that I'm going to buy a new block and start building it from the ground up, fully forged. Once it's done if my motor hasn't blown I'll sell the motor and drop the new one in and shove air down its throat! That's just me
