    V6 Tech
    I have a 3.8 v6 with 140,000 miles on it and want to add a lot of power to it, but I'm not sure if the engines Gona hold up of I do, so I was thinking about boring to 4.3, stroking, and forging.

    4.6L Tech
    Ooook, to start this off I own a 2003 mustang gt with only a cai and borla mufflers with 100,000 miles on the engine. I can't make a decision to either buy a new 5.0 block and build that with forged internals orrr just use the block i have now and forge that if that would even be safe...

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    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...

  9. bad piston... is the engine still useable?

    4.6L Tech
    timing chain broke and bent some valves causing piston to valve (valves hit the pistons)... can the short block still be used without any repairs... had manley notched forged pistons so the pistons already had the reliefs cut in them... the marks dont look too terribly bad
