I believe the MMR600 short block is like 2400 dollars and that's good to 600 hp

My local performance shop slapped a 2.9 whipple with supporting mods on an 03 cobra but leaving the engine stock besides billet oil pump gears and it makes 800hp+ @ the crank!

During/after college that's probably the route 'm going. I might piece together a cheap vortech kit and run low boost until I forge it.

I'm in the sane boat too, the rotating assembles from mmr look decent, I'm just waiting until tax returns still being in college sucks!

Forged internals, heads, cams and intake plus labor. I never sat down with them to go over the exact specs. For that kind of money I decided to trade for a 5.0

It included labor and pulling the motor, plus dyno tune. Heads are not cheap on any motor.

If my old car wasn't a vert, I would have done it. I was already under the et requiring a roll bar without building the motor.

I don't have the time slips anymore to back it up, so I'm not gonna get flamed. Let's just say, I was well under 13.5, which is the cut off for a non roll bar vert. I had headers, o/rx, Cai, 4.10 gears, aluminum drive shaft, upper & lower control arms, race star 15x10 wheels with MT et streets.

Like I said, I don't have the slips. My 60 wasn't what it could be. I never got enough practice to dial it in before they told me no more without roll bar.

The rods are a big upgrade from stock if they are Hbeam. I don't know much about Saleen pistons but Manley pistons are awesome also. I'd get the rods and buy Manley pistons also.

The flanges, an h beam will have wider flanges than an I beam

Correct and while both options are very strong when forged, I prefer the H beam myself because they "look" stronger lol

Yes they are H beam. The only info I've found on the Saleen pistons is that they come factory in the Saleen Extreme but don't know what they're rated at...

Well Saleen makes some high quality stuff. If its cheap I would go for it. The 4.6 has to worry about throwing rods more so than pistons. Compression isn't a huge factor in that motor

Not a huge 3V know it all but if you use the same crank/rods/pistons as a 2V do this:

-Cobra crank
-Boss 302 rods
-Lower priced MMR pistons

Good for a solid 700-800hp before you need to start worrying about the rods.

I'll check with Brenspeed! I like Saleen products but I'm almost thinking if going forged then go with a aftermarket performance brand...maybe that's just me!
