yep

The 4.2L crankshaft will bolt right up to a v6 mustang block

You can also bore the engine out to .60 over to get a 4.3L bore total

Pick up alot of torque by doing this

If you decide to stroke your 3.8 with a 4.2 crank you might as will get a 4.2 short block and then proceed from there and unless you a5re going to go with a high boost Supercharger or go over 75-100 shot of nitrous forged is not a necessity but a nice addition if you can handle the addition cost.

that does not sound like to bad of an investment to me. im getting around 2500 when i sell my mg here in hopefully within a month. would you recomend stroking or just mod the 3.8? i still have another car i can drive plus when i get income tax im probably going to put another 1000 in the car after that ill be done for a while though. so stroke or mod??
thank you for everyones input. :thumbs2:
i probably wont bore though
