Engine build

I need help with an engine build. I recently blew my engine on my 2000 gt. I have a vortech v2 supercharger that was on it and it sent a rod through the engine. I want to build an engine that can handle the power with the supercharger but i only have about $2500. I was wondering if i should just take an engine core and put forged internals or what other options i have

Try to find a nice used Teksid block for cheap, used Cobra crank, and then budget for the forged peices to go along. Should be able to make it happen with 2500, but it may be a slow process finding the used parts cheap.

Buy a pullout from a Crown Vic for $500-$700, turn the boost down and get a better tune. Thrown in a CX Racing intercooler and a slot style MAF and go blow-thru while you are at it. This will eat up most of that $2500 and you should have a slot MAF regardless. Much more accurate and easier to tune.


I'm in the middle of swapping a Vic engine into the car in my sig I bought with a blown motor from someone running too much power on a bad tune and also the guy was a moron.


$2500 will not get you any sort of build that is worthwhile. You can run a stock motor at 425-450 whp safely for a long time with a spot on tune and not being a dumbass.
