Nope, same heads but larger crank on the 3.7 I'm pretty sure...but yeah I mean higher rpm capable heads on the 3.7 but that's internal, the exteriors are the same...

The 3.5 Ecoboost motor has better internals and is made stronger for the added abuse of boost. I've heard the manifolds bolt up different, which is the biggest hurdle adapting it to our motor. Anyway, unless someone gives you an SHO setup or you find a wrecked car and got the pair for a few hundred, better off going with a kit made for the 3.7 or fabbing your own.

We know our cars can put down around 550whp on a stock block.

So pretty much we need to start a forum and send to Bbk to clone the 3.5 manifolds for our car!

I'm so waiting for this.I wonder if you had the lower and upper manifolds if
it would make worth while power gains.I bet if you added headers to breath more
it might.If you could get 30 or 40 hp it would be a good investment.

You could probably just run higher and better boost. I already have headers so I'm just waiting in the upper intake I got 30 off the headers. Idk if the intake would actually give you horsepower it would just be safer

you can do a single turbo easily enough and get more power probably overall with less hassle, but the motor wont handle the max abuse most could put on it, however you should see high 400rwhps without to much hassle.

But the money you spend on a turbo you could do a blower and headers and still end up cheaper. But it's all personal preference and I prefer sound so I enjoy the headers

Dont know if you saw this already but this guy is twin turboing his 2013 v6 but he isn't using the 3.5 manifolds and turbos though. He's almost finished and it looks freakin sweet

2013 Mustang V6 Twin Turbo Build - MustangForums.com
There were a lot of people hating on his build lol so ridiculous. WHY TWO TURBOS, WHY VOID WARRANTY, WHY THAT SMALL OF TURBO, WHY MID MOUNT, WHY AIR TO WATER INTERCOOLER... blah blah blah.

I give that man some respect, that's pretty impressive he could pull it off all on his own.

Probably be high 400s, because I'm sure one turbo will spool the other. Maybe not he might run both, but then he can only push like 12 psi tops, and that's on the ragged edge unless he builds the motor
