Next step

So I have a CAI, SR 75mm throttle body and plenum and Magnaflow Exhaust. What's the next step? I'm thinking getting headers. I also want to get steeda underdrive pulleys, 3.73 gears, Bama tuner tune, and a new suspension.

Hey Jay,

Good question and put simply what are you looking to get out of the car?

Louder? Performance? Looks?

I think there's a slew of great parts mentioned here and if anything I would shoot for the Bama X4/SF4 Tuner right off the bat. Considering you already have the CAI, Throttle Body, and Plenum it's going to tie these mods together perfectly!

Down the road I would then look into a set of Pulley's as they're definitely a must on the 2V's. There's a slew of great brands out there and for the money I would shoot for the SR Performance Pulley as they're going to be a fraction of the price of some of the other big names out there.

It's looking like you have an '01 GT and before you have them purchased I would make 100% sure when your car was built as between 2000-2001 Ford made a small redesign on the water pump so there's 2 different styles!

If you're looking for more ideas on what to do check out our Bolt On Build Up series where we took our shop 2000 GT and made some subtle improvements!


Let me know if you have any other questions about this and I'm here to help!

Alex

Your going to need a few grand and a super charger, turbo, or cams and head work to be hitting that number

If you want to hit 350whp N/A you will need full bolt ons, ported heads, comp 270ah cams or bigger, notched pistons (get some with a compression bump). At the very minimum.

Jay,

Sounds good! If that's the number that you're after Soccers on to something and you're definitely going to need to take a look at Heads and Cams!

Let me know if you're to have any questions at all about this and I'm here to help you out any way I can!

350 to the wheels? Going to need a power adder. Look into a Vortech S trim as well as the rest of the chassis/suspension/driveline mods to handle it. For a tuner, Bama is bottom of the barrel, there are much better options. They also aren't going to tune for a supercharger or anything that is going to get you near 350rwhp anyway since they are only canned tunes.

One of the reasons I sold my 98 was because swapping it with a trans as good as the MT82/6R80 would be damn near as much as buying a 2011GT when all is said and done.

With the current glut of Coyotes out there its kind of silly to build a 2V IMO. Unless for a specific purpose.

5.4 4v would be cheaper than the coyote. Shouldn't be too hard to hit 350..

Still will be slower though. The coyote heads are where it's at.

Depends on what you consider expensive. A 5.4 with 350 rwhp is going to require work. Same as a 2v. So that's $$ right there.
You can pick up just the coyote long block for under 6k if you play your cards right.

Either route you take will not be cheap, just boils down to what you want now and the future and what you want to spend

You can get a brand new coyote crate motor for $6k. Used ones are going for $2-4k

If you want to stay NA then don't even bother with the 4.6, you need to swap it to something else.

The saying used to go, "there is no replacement for displacement", nowadays there is only 1 replacement for displacement, and that's boost.

Only way to get a high horsepower 4.6 is super high compression, badass heads, and huge cams.

Well yeah but wouldn't the amount of money to put into a GT and stay N/A be about how much a terminator costs?
