400hp Please

Hey guys I need ur help again. I have a 2002 mustang gt with 128000 miles on it and would like, no need, to get 400hp in the car.

All I'm asking is what what are the cheapest ways to get just get 400hp. This includes anything u can think of.

It's my daily driver and I would like it to last at least a few years so I can save up to fix it if something happens.

I really don't want to buy another car, infancy I want to keep this car for ever but to at least be satisfied for a long time I need 400hp.

I need ur guys help. If u guys can give me species instead of general things that would be much more appreciated. Thnx guys

Blower for the power. Gonna need forged internals for reliability. Say goodbye to affordability.

I posted a link in your other thread on how to piece together a Vortech kit... that's gonna be your cheapest way to 400hp.

To be honest just put full exhaust and cam it. It won't be 400hp but it'll be fun.

Ok so say I put that into the car I have now, will it last for a few years, and if my engine does blow can I just put this on the new engine? Other people are saying my engine is going to blow very soon if I install a supercharger.

Don't get me wrong I'm looking into it and ur post was very specific so I really appreciate it.

Its all in your tune. Ive had a friend who was making 505rwhp on a stock motor and beat on it all day everyday for almost 4 years till he up the boost and split the block. Its wise to build the motor and see what ever number you want. Theres deals out there for forged internals. I picked up a mmr 900 bottom end minus the crank for $960. People also part out their cars and you can pick up an entire motor for a steal. See atleast $1500 for a bottom end and about $3k for a new vortech v2 kit

Blower plus full bolt ons. You're going to have to go forced induction

Ok, just so I understand, all I need is a new bottom end and a vortech supercharger and I can have 400hp, or is there more to it. I know some who said they could look at my engine (by do compression tests, and other things I don't remember, to see if my engine can handle a supercharger. Should I bother with that or just get another bottom end.

I'm still new with cars so I don't know what makes up a bottom end.

Well if you're new with cars you should probably learn more about a blower and what it requires to run safely. Your bottom end is your pistons, rods and crank strength. Lots of pressure in the cylinders can lead to fried rings and much more bad stuff. You can run centrifugal blowers with low boost and you will be fine but if you increase boost you'll need to build up your bottom end and lower your compression

I wouldnt even bother with that. The weak link in our motors are the rods and pistons. Thats what you would replace. Pistons rods rings bearings. All the compression test does is tell you if your rings are holding the compression in the cylinder. Hang out on svtperformance.com they have deals on there. I picked up a barely used vortech v3 si, complete return style fuel system and my bottom end for $5000. Just take your time to find deals and what you really want. Its taken me 5 years to get get this far and im no where near done.

So u both agree that I need to replace my bottom end to support the supercharger then get a vortech supercharger and that would put me at 400hp safely.

I'm still going to be doing more research. If I can get 400hp with then I will be looking a lot more into it

Look up videos on YouTube of mustangs on dynos and they will usually list their mods to produce the numbers
