I was just wondering, but, say I drive a v6 232 now, and I were to magically come up with the 11,600 it costs for the Roush Performance 402 R - Superformance MKII... now i don't know the stats on the superperformance one, but the 402 R has a nice 525 hp on it *drool*... but, I'm just curious, if I make that a goal to save for, would it even fit in my engine bay now? Would they be interchangeable? and would I be able to then supercharge my 402 R engine to get umm... hehehe... 600+? :shock: :D

yes, would fit.
no, not interchangable w/o A LOT of work. the v6 is not made to have a v8 in it.

yes, you would be able to supercharge it

anything is possible w/ enough money

holy god. 11grand for an engine.thats just stupid. just get a gt engine and supercharge it, do really good internals and porting and such, and some nos and youll be at 500hp after likr 7grand. gt engines shouldnt be more that 2grand, should they?

if I were to do that, would I have to change my gauges to reflect a diff max mph and tachometer change? I'd need a new chip too right?

yea, chip, new PATS system, new electrical harness, new ECU most likely. basically a new car w/ a V6 shell. like i said earlier. the V6 was not meant to have aa V8 in it, so the parts are not interchangable, and you need a lot of work to get an 8 in there

quite sure it can be done, the S351 Saleens, of course they dont' do them anymore, were a stripped out V6 with a 351 W engine in it. The thing is like Monkey said, almost everything has to be changed, all the electronics, all the wiring, the ECU, everything, I mean everything under the hood has to be stripped out and changed to V8 stuff, its a big swap, not a simple changeover at all.

If that is the road you want to take find a donor car (Something wrecked) and take all the wiring harnesses, gauges, engine with all accessories, tranny, rearend, Computer, crossmember with engine mounts, bellhousing. I know I mam forgetting something

Yeah, you would probably just twist the driveshaft right off on the V6 drivetrain with that engine!

you could build a carbed stroked small block ford for around 4k and make 500+ hp
