4.6 build

So I have a 2002 mustang gt I'm trying to build somewhat like an SVT cobra. I have a brand new 98 aluminum teksid block bored .20 over I have 15.5 cc dish probe pistons patriot heads stage 1 with comp cams stage 3. I have a stroker crank crank so the displacement is a little different. I have a v1 vortech supercharger I'm throwing with it. I'm trying to get advice/knowledge on what kind of clutch I should get, If I should get a new fuel pump and ect.Also what's the recommendation for knock sensors...I was told to put them on my new engine but the stock 02 mustang gt engine doesnt have them

I’m not 4.6 guru, but I’m pretty certain the stock pump and fuel injectors will be “too small.” As for the knock sensor, there shouldn’t be any “knock” if the fuel system is sufficient and you get a tune.

As far as clutches I have had good experience with RAM. I had a bad experience with SPEC and also the guy that tuned my 2v had SPEC clutches laying all over his scrap pile because numerous folks have had issues out of their clutches as well. I remember a few guys on here several years ago that ran SPEC and liked them. Even guys making decent power. I’d make a good guess at what kind of power you expect to make and find a clutch that will hold up to what you are going to be putting it through. As far as the knock sensor you are not wired for it. A good tune on the dyno then doing normal street driving under load while your tuner logs will be sufficient. Just remember don’t get greedy with timing and fuel. However more timing and less fuel makes more power to an extent. Get greedy and you get what we call detonation and can cause harm to the internals. Good quality fuel and always stick to the minimum octane you was tuned on. Make sure you have a good AFR gauge, and boost gauge.

Life is to short to live it pissed off cherish who and what you got while you can!
