Building a super fast motor!

Help me I want to build a super fast motor for my MN12, but I have no idea what I'm doing and I have problems with searching! Yeah thinking about using a big block Chevy motor with some PI heads, throw a couple gerbil wheels with a supercharged turbo in there as well. Gonna be off the hook yo!

Rant over, lock delete whatever....

God Bless the men & women who have served and serving to keep us free

I personally would run some Honda 4cyl VTEC heads on it, one on each side of that v-8. Once VTEC hits it’s all over man!?!?!

Naw, Dodge used a different bell housing on the diesels. Which is a bummer, cause I'm trying to figure out how to top my current project.

i see a lot of hondas with the big muffler on their cars they say it adds 15 horsepower, I was wondering if i could put one of those mufflers on my exhaust and get the same power?. I have never seen one on a V8 though...so i could be going faster and be custom at the same time!!! im killin two birds with one stone!!!

Wrecked my 94LX looking to get another car.

Dude I added 2 VTecs one in front and one in the rear now I have ALL WHEEL DRIVE. I guess since its technically all wheel drive at that point, a WRX STi motor is a direct swap.

I put V8 emblems on my fenders, car seems to be more responsive now!

But I'm wondering, if I add on a Lightning MAF and change my struts and put on 22 inch tires will I need a chip? Someone here said I could. I tried the but couldn't really find what I was looking for!

Hi all. I just bought a T-Bird and I'm real excited. I was wondering does anyone here know anything about the 4.6L? And my CHECK ENGINE light is on. I looked at the engine but everything seems fine. What do I do about it?

I'm also looking for more power. I found this chip on eBay that's real cheap and was wondering if anybody has used it?

Oh yeah, will I beat a Mustang with a 4.6L? They're the same right? I want to run in the low 8's. What will it take?

And my buddy has a 3.8L N/A. What does he need from an SC to put the supercharger on?

And what does MN12 mean anyway?

oh shoot i frgot to typ like this wen i did this darn i mean its not like its harder or nything to undrstand right after all what is the point of punkshoeation (sp) its not like it helps ppl understand it was just a waste of time in skool plus do u know how much extra effort it is to spell chek and right every thing the right way grammer is for punks if u dont like it dont post about it k

Don't forget to throw some PowerThirst in the gas tank! Good for you and Good for your car!!!

Flux capacitors work great! Don't forget the Energizer Bunny to run the thing!

But dollar for dollar you can't beat the air silencer delete! It's good for several nanoseconds in the quarter.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
