  1. Classic Tech
    Hello, I am posting this because I can not find any posts about this company on this forum. I have been looking into replacing my 289 with a 302 lately and came across The Performance Edge. I was wondering if anyone else has had any experiences with this company and the quality of block they...
  2. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    I am looking to get my block built up to handle the 550HP ford racing kit. I am wanting to start with the internals. So I am wondering what rotating assembly would be the best for this kit. Thanks in advance!

    I am looking to either build up a new engine or rebuild my current engine someday. Possibly sooner than I think. It would probably be cheaper to get my current block, Windsor 4.6 (2000 GT), rebuilt. Lately, however, I have heard that Windsors are pointless to rebuild and that they will just go...

    I was looking at two blocks: the Dart Iron Eagle and World Products Man O' War blocks. How much HP will they hold? Also, I was looking at the matching cylinder heads: Dart Iron Eagle and World Products Sr. Comp Cams Blower/Turbo Cam and Lifter kit's come with 1.430 springs, however, both heads...

    One more dumb question. On the driver's side of the block, up high and very near the front is a large hole with two tapped holes on either side, on an angle. Does that make sense? I've looked at many photos online and my guess is there should be a "freeze" plug in the larger hole? Can someone...

  8. V6 Tech
    Hey i guys i was wondering how strong is the 3.8 block. Is there a limit to the block strength or has anyone found it like the old 5.0's with the block's splitting at around 500. I have seen guys get 600 hp. Has anyone seen these blocks give up like this at high horsepower applications. Also is...

    How much hp could I make with forged pistons, connecting rods, and crank on the stock block with a supercharger at the flywheel? At the rear wheels? Would I have to change anything else for street driving with that much horsepower? Were talking a goal of like 700 flywheel hp? Will the...

    I could go into detail (which I might by the end of the thread if I get lots of hits) but the bottom line is I have a 1994 Mustang V6 with a great running engine. I also have a 2000 V6 that threw a rod straight through the block, and I'm looking for a cheap way to get the 2000 back on the road...

    I just got my block out of the shop today. Had it cleaned, bored, new bearings, ect. Also had my heads cleaned up and a valve job done. Before I put the motor back together and put it in the car I'm going to paint it. What color do you think would look good? I've included a picture of the top of...

    I have a 1991 Mustang LX 2.3l N/A. and my EGR valve failed, i cant find one in the junkyards around here and i cant afford a new one from my local parts stores, so i was wondering the easiest and most cost effective way to just block it off. What kind of tools, materials, and if i need any screw...

  19. 5.0L Talk
    When building a new engine with new pistons and piston rings it is important that you know how piston ring placement is placed (which I will talk about later). Another thing to remember is having your piston rings correctly gapped. Depending on what your going to use your engine for will...
