How to get 400HP N/A From 99+ V6

Ok, so i know that it can be done... But the question is what would it take to get around 400RWPH from a V6 without adding a Turbo, Nitrous, or Supercharger... I Dont know if it is even with the money to do it... But it could be fun...I want to Keep the 3.8L Block...But other then that im open for anything...


02 stang, True Dual exhaust, CAI, 4.10 gears, 180 Thermostat, Diablosport tuned, dropped 2", Cross Drilled rotors, Zri Fuzion Tires, GT RSB + more

Here is an idea
Bore & Stroke 3.8 to 4.4L (moranav6racing.com)
Lightweight and forged internals
Blueprinted engine work (fully balanced)
Lighweight flywheel
Wilder cam to allow the engine to rev into the 6000+rpm zone
lightweight valvetrain components (Rockers, titanium Valves, etc)
Ported heads with large valves (1.94 - 1.6) or more
extremely ported or aftermarket intake
Complete exhaust with longtube headers, X pipe, etc
Compression 12:1 (might work with 93 octane)

The theory behind such a build is: all the HP is at the top RPM range. But you install gears to compensate the lost low end power. The trick for a high reving engine is WEIGHT, internals and valvetrain have to be lite to allow the engine to rev high.

Think of a Honda S2000, it packs a 2.2 liter engine that delivers almost 240 HP. So you are looking into getting 100+ HP per liter.

We are talking about a world-class build job and expensive valvetrain using titanium valves, keepers, retainers.

The theory is there, the problem is finding someone willing to get the job done.

Like he said, good in theory, but you might need to rethink doing it N/A. This guy's writeup is pretty good http://3.8mustang.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113280

Dang, you're older than I am on this site!

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
