Rebuild.

Ok i have a 2000 mustang gt that has the 01 crate HO and i was wondering what would be the best set up to buy to build it for boost. Im not sure if i wanna turbo or supercharge it but i wanna build it to boost 15+ psi at all times. I know the engine can handle it due to a friend who bought one that can handle 20psi. Just trying to make a budget

The block can handle it, it will need to be fully forged with the right combo, right fuel system and the entire driveline/chassis of the car will need to be gone through to handle the power or you'll just blow up whatever is behind a 2V at 15-20 psi. Although PSI really means nothing if you don't know the rest of the combo. Something making 12 psi can be putting way more power down than something else at 15 depending on what is done.

Yes but on building the engine with forged internals is there like a good recommendation? I want something thats gonna be able to run hard at the track but can be used as a daily as well.

MMR is the catch all canned place if you don't want to have to piece it all together. Not sure I would have them build the shortblock. Lots of ppl running their motors with no issues but I've seen enough documented stuff to where I'd DIY or find another shop. Their parts are good tho.

So i looked at their stuff and alot of it jus looked like they were stroker or race packages. Is that wat i would need? They mostly showed 4.75 stroker that was 1000hp all the way up to 2000hp. The only one i really seen that showed a more 4.6 setup was 600hp kit.

No, stay away from Eagle. Chinese made and they have issues with keeping their journal sizing consistent. If you can't find a good OEM 96-04 forged Cobra (or mach 1 5 spd) crank then get a SCAT crankshaft. For rods and pistons, a good forged I beam and Diamond pistons. For a budget you can always go Boss rods and Manleys/Probe pistons and still be good to 800hp.
