My friends GT made 460-480rwhp

- Built shortblock ( Forged )
- Stock heads and cams
- Tork Tech kit on 15psi
- Liberty / TKO transmission ( Spec Clutch and flywheel )
- built rear end

But blew a Piston Ring , he thinks they didnt do a good job on the work.

I thought about that but I don't think I can convince the wife to do that I just bought the 87 saleen and the 2013 gt

Really I just like the 2001 and I want to build it up a bit then run big boost or nitrous down the line

A blower is going to run about $3500-$5500 for a decent setup. Then you have to install and tune it--not sure if you're doing this or a shop. But on a stock bottom end, you'll be limited to how much boost you can run. If you add heads, you're looking at another $3000 for the fully dressed trick flows plus installation. It's an ambitious plan to try and stay within the $8000 budget but you might need to bump it another few grand to get there.

Personally, I'm taking a different route. No power adder, just bolt ons; stock bottom end with baffled oil pan; high flow oil pump; electric water pump; fully dressed 38cc trick flow heads port matched to lower intake and upper intake as well to throttle body. 42lb injectors; calibrated air flow meter and all with a custom tune.

I figure this setup should net me about 350-365 reliable naturally aspirated horsepower. I want a balanced car that has good usable power from the mid-high range that has handling to match. I'll make up the lack of bottom end torque through a rear gear upgrade to either a 3:55 or 3:73. I figure my engine mods with a custom tune should easily cost less than $8k since I'm leaving the bottom end alone. My suspension setup is another story....

You can get a stroker kit but they aren't cheap and it's a bit of work. You can bore a 2V but the most you can safely go is about 0.020" over--this due to the thin water jackets between cylinders.

If you must touch the bottom end and if you really want to up the displacement, don't bore anything. Just get a stroker kit, balance/blueprint the crank; pistons and align/hone the cylinder bores.

Again, not cheap to do if you want it done right. Plus you have to upgrade the top end; fuel delivery etc etc to get the most out of it. The benefits will net great gains but for the $$ outlay you'd be better off starting with a 4V....good luck either way.
