Hey guys, i have a stock 1996 V6 5spd with about 170,000 miles (ya i know:sosad: ) and I plan on SC it with at least 11psi. but before I go and do that I wanted to know how I can make my engine handle that? And I dont really want to swap my engine, even though it has so many miles on it. What do you guys think of the power packs and forged intrnls that supersix motorsports offers? Help!

I wouldn't do it.

you need a rebuild or swap before SC.

ok, what if I go with the forged intrnls. Then run a SC at about 4-6 psi until I save for the engine swap?

Then you've basically rebuilt the engine already. An engine swap would be cheaper.

depends on how much you do yourself, but a 99+ donor engine goes for around $400 with low miles.
