See it now, nice car. You don't need a stroker or a full TFS top end to make 550-650whp on a 2V either. Cleaned up 4.6 like .020 over, forged rotating assembly and stage 2 or 3 ported PI heads and cam combo will get you there for a lot less money.

the shortblock i'm getting is stock 3.55 bore (rather not mess with the bore) with a 3.800 stroke. all aluminum 05+ block 4bolt main. built for 1000 hp kellog crank manly rods pistons arp bolts throughout ect. the shortblock is a big chunk of change so i'm going to replace the shortblock and get it tuned for the stock pi heads for now. and later on down the road figure out what i'm doing with the heads and cams.

Well there is something to be said for jumping in with both feet. That's a pretty stout shortblock and the weight savings is nice too. Any reason you chose the WAP over the Teksid? Probably availability and the fact you can still get them new I'd imagine.

if i'm gonna drop 5k on a shortblock it better hold up to whatever boost i wanna throw at it lol. but ya the weight savings is nice and its getting built by one of the best builders in my area who btw is also the shop tuning the car so. they'll be tuning the motor they built its gotta count for somthing.

---------- Post added at 12:22 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:21 AM ----------

also from what i've been reading is that the 05+ aluminum block is stronger than the teksid. i've read that on multiple sites due to me doing aloooot of research.

The Teksid is aluminum too and stronger than the WAP but it stopped being made in 1998. I have one on a stand in my garage waiting to be built, they are pretty sweet but the WAP is going to be good for more power than you'll throw at it and you can still get them new from Ford IIRC.

Yeah very true, you already have the supercharger setup so once the S trim runs out of air move up to a T trim or YSi and go balls out.

they guys at my motor shop are also telling me the 05+ is stronger. i mean i've always heard that the teksid blocks are the bad boys i mean they built blocks for ferrari back in the day. mixed info i dunno either the wap or teksid will handle way over the 1000hp the rotating assembly is good for. im hoping to order the shortblock in the next 2-3 alil help from the old man for graduating college is nice lol

---------- Post added at 12:32 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:29 AM ----------

i spoke to vortech and was told the si trim is rated for 725 at the wheels. i honestly dont know if i'm going to want more than that or even up to that. i think i'll be happy with a good 600-650 rwhp i mean thats still a lot of power should run 10/s all day. i also gotta remember it is a street car weekend play toy, i dont wanna kill drivability cuz i like to take my daughter for joy rides just cruising.

Eh, everything I've ever read says Teksid is stronger too, they might have just not wanted to mess with finding a good used block lol. Yeah either block will hold a ridiculous amount of power. I just like my Teksid for another reason and that is that I got it and a forged crank out of a 98 Cobra for $250 cash lol.

Let us know how it runs and what kind of power she makes. Even with the stock heads you should be able to hit 500whp+. There is a guy on the corral who made over 600whp with bone stock PI heads and a turbo. The curve was horrible and they fell flat on their face at around 6200 rpm but still...

Edit: Yeah man you don't want something that is TOO powerful especially for a street car and especially with a manual trans. IMO 550whp ish is the perfect level for a street car with race tunes available when you are at the track. My goal for my car once I do the motor is a 550whp or so street car/weekend road racer and that's all.

yea i'm deff gonna have to keep you guys updated. when i do the shortblock i'll try and get pictures and stuff up. i'm still trying to figure the site out. ya 250 is a great price for a teksid and forged crank. i was goin to go that route originally but for a comperable rot. assembly 2k, machining can go up to 1500, plus all the lil oddities your gonna run in to. i figured it out to be about the same either way. going your route allows you to buy things alil at a time instead of one lump sum. but as of right now my baby is out of commision and i miss my car so shortblock it is lol

Yup, I have a 80k mile PI motor in my 98 and it runs strong as hell so I have time to build up the Teksid. Actually going to Tork Tech it and run at 400/400 while I start the Teksid. "Budget" build for me as far as the rotating assy. Block checked/.010 over if I can or .020 if not, crank checked and turned if needed, 03 Cobra rods, new forged pistons.

But yeah this isn't the first motor I've done and it adds up quick as hell. To get pics up easy on this site just make a photobucket account and link from there to here. Its easy, just load your pics to photobucket and then copy/paste the URL code into your post and it'll show up as a pic. Or just use tapatalk and upload even easier straight from your phone/tablet.

---------- Post added at 12:49 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:48 AM ----------

one thing i dont like so far taht i see about this site is it doesnt split up the96-04 in like a tech, general, classified sections at least not that i've found.

Yeah it does, it says right under the forum "Technical Discussion". There is a general mustang section and a classifieds section too totally separate.

Oh you probably mean the classifieds. I've never seen a 96-04 general section, even on the Corral but I do like how the Corral has a classifieds parts section broken down into all the different types and modular vs pushrod vs Coyote. Probably why none of the stuff I sell ever gets bought anywhere but the Corral lol.
