I'd assume more since the v6 block takes that no issue.

Granted the 4v's do have its advantages but the 2v's can make good power for about the same price as you would spend for one you can boost the 2v. They're really good engines still and are reliable even with boost

Most N/A 2V can make is around 320-330rwhp
With full bolt ons, dyno tune , stage 3 heads&cams

Which is a 4V with bolt ons ..

A full bolt on heads cam 2v is pretty nasty. Not like a bolt on 4v but still pretty badass. And honestly if you beat a 4v with your built 2v if feel like a bad mofo. Even if they have more potential. You could always trade your cAr in for a Mach/Cobra

The car has personal value, I have tried for years to get rid of it, but for some reason I hold onto it. My wife was talking about getting a Mach 1 for her self.

True, but parts are also a little bit cheaper for the 2v and the 4vs are valued at a few grand more and with the $$$ you spend on that you could boost the 2v. Both ways is a win imo though.

Stock 2v rods are good for around 400whp. Anymore than that is pushing it.
