Procharger or v8 swap

Ok guys im gonna start saving up for some more power i got a 2010 mustang 4.0 v6 an i tried to trade it in for a GT but i owe too much an they were not giving me much for my stang . So what do you guys think would be better or cheaper ? I can procharge and built internals with like 14lbs of boost or just swap for a v8 either a 4.6 or a 5.0. I already have everybolt on for my stang an i just feel the need for more power. So what do you guys think ?

Procharger. But if you can afford a coyote swap do it.

If you have a fully built motor you can push 300rhwp. If you slap on a procharger you can easily crank up the boost and maybe get 450 rwhp. I think you should do a swap so you can tell me how it goes hahaha

I'd try to sell the car yourself rather than trade it in.
When the 2015's come out there will be good deals on the used 5 litres.

You don't have to build the 4.0 to get power. My 2006 ran 12 lbs of boost on the Xcharger. 200,000 + miles and that car still runs strong. Brumby at Mustang collective is pushing 425+ to the rear wheels with no problems. The 4.0 is really tough

I kno the 4.0 is strong but i also kno its not really capable of more then 430 ish rwhp. An to get that is alot of money. I dnt mind keepin my 4.0 i love my car an its motor but i juat trying to compare the cost of a super built 4.0 to a v8 swap

if you're gonna build the motor and supercharge it, you might as well swap the engine. It would probably cost less dollar for dollar. With all that power you'd be pushing, you'd need an 8.8" rear end and a GT/gt500 transmission and upgraded suspension anyway. There's a lot of factors with a swap including motor mounts and harnesses and a new ECU and all those separate engine components. The swap is also far more valuable because you gain a lot of experience with it. Just my .02

Still need that upgraded tranny! And keep in mind, with a new engine, it's like a whole new car. All those bolt ons would be part of the build and fun! try selling your aftermarket bolt ons maybe?
