You could hit about 350hp with a trickflow topend kit, about $2500. Throw on some long tubes, a cold air intake and some gears and call it a day. 5.0 all day

Probably close to that when you figure in the computer and wiring harness, motor mounts, 8.8 rear end if your car still has the 7.5, ect. If it was me, i would just pick up a 94/95 gt and dump the v6. ( actually if it were me id buy a fox body but that's beside the point.) You would probably save some money depending on how good of a deal you find on a gt and how much you get for your car.

I'm gunna keep my 7.5 rear till I'm over 400hp since they can handle round 500. The motor mounts for the 3.8 r the same for 3.8, 5.0, and the 5.8. And my stang has sentamental value.

If your planning on swapping gears i wouldnt bother with the 7.5 if your just going to swap later to an 8.8. I wouldnt trust a 7.5, their is a reason the gt's didnt use them. Either way the v8 is the way to go. You can throw 10k into a 3.8 and you will just have a really expensive 14 second car. Im also pretty sure the 5.0 will not match up with the 3.8 mounts

10K for a 14 second car? lmfao if you're going to down talk it at least sound like you know what you're talking about

my buddy has a couple grand less than that in his and rapped a new 5.0...

I couldnt see the times clearly but it hardly looked like a rape. It did hook very nicely tho. In reference to the OP's post, the most power for the least amount of money its v8. Could you make v8 stomping power with a v6? Sure you can. But put the same into a v8 and its over

+11. Plus the op already said he has a specific hp output in mind, for least cash!.. You'll get there a lot quicker with a V8!...

If 6 cylinders cheaply out performed v8's the 8 cylinder would have been dead years ago.

Two guys I know, one with a built Turbo V6 putting down just over 500hp and spent about $13,000!.. The other guy with a built 4.6 SC V8 putting down well over 620hp and spent about $10,000 to get there!.. Both guys built their own cars respectively!.. Both did their own work!..

If you are going to mod it i would get a gt. Itl be cheaper to buy since you will still have to build the motor to hit 500hp. Unless you just want the right to say you own a cobra, which would be cool, the gt would be a cheaper option

The V6 is low 13s on streets!.. The V8 is banned from runing due to the fact his is '98 Vert, and he refuses to put a roll bar in it!.. But he should be high 11s low 12s!..

Good for you!!... (Clapping hands sarcastically). The point of this thread was which way was easiest to get big HP gains!.. Not who runs what with whatever car!.. The OP has a certain HP goal that he wants to reach and even said he doesn't care to build a BA V6 car!.. Yes anyone can throw FI onto their car and get 100hp "easily"!.. But if your gaol is to reach a certain HP # the easiest way, then yes a V8 is better than a V6!.. Same as a 3v is better than a 2v, or 4v better than a 3v, and the Terminator topping them all except the Coyote!..

Getting tired of threads getting off topic from what the OP originally asked!.. All because some one starting to get butt hurt!.. People need to stay on topic with threads like this!..

Like I said before, he banned from the track because he won't put in a roll bar!.. So don't know what his car will really do!..

Go V8!.. There's no way you'll reach 400hp on a V6 without going FI!..
