I don't have one yet(my federal refund is looking like it may already have that purpose though) but when I do get one I'm planning on running a stock bottom end and a relatively stock engine as a whole-until it eventually burns up from the high mileage already on it. Superchargers add so much power you'll kick the krap out of 99% of everything out there even with a pretty stock powerplant.

the stock crank should be good for a safe 10psi 450hp

I am, until something breaks. I already started saving for a forged shortblock, but I hope mine will last a couple of years.

its not the crank or the rods that will go first....the cheap cast junk pistons ford puts into the gt is the first problem...some one should tell ford they should offer a forged option on the gt's...bet they would out sell the reg internals cars
