It won't fit the 2000 heads unless you have a custom adapter made.

If you haven't already, you should pick up a 42% underdriver from www.rpmoutlet.com and 1.8 Roller Rockers from www.rpm-mustangs.com or swap out your cam for more performance.

you're going to need the heads, intake, etc from the SC, and even then, you've got 220 hp stock. You can get close to those numbers with a naturally aspirated 1999+ engine with a lot less work.

It'll cost you at least $2000 to get get teh electronics & anti-theft stuff to work with that combination. + you'll have to get new exhaust parts, k-member (I'm pretty sure), a new rear-end, struts & springs.

Running a carbed engine may be illegal in your state, you you'll want to check that out as well.

If he's going with a carb setup, he can just bypass all of the anti theft stuff. He doesn't need the computer anymore so he can just wire around it.

Can't bypass PATS, I know of a few people who've tried!
