Will you be strengthening the bottom-end or will you need to? You'd better to a how-to to post.

Mine WILL be Intercooled (I'm building a Custom Front Mount intercooler) , also I'm going to be running my Stock bottom end with it, 8psi of boost is nothing for a 3.8L N/A IF it doesn't start making boost till 2500rpm. there are SEVERAL 3.8L mustangs with the 8psi Kit that have logged MORE THAN 50,000 miles with out any problems, EVEN stock Headgaskets!. the SECRET is in the TUNE, fordchip.com.

with all My other Goodies I SHOULD be over 240rwhp and 270rwtq! and Run into the 13 second range!

i was thinking

of waiting for my 3.8 to blow another h/g, then getting me a 4.2 short block, putting all my 3.8 stuff onto the 4.2 short block, and then getting me a vortech, good idea or not. I think its a good idea b/c i can reuse my same 3.8 computer, and i dont have to buy me a bigger hood so i can fit the 4.2 intake.

Would be a nice combo, Marvin, but how much would all of that cost compared to a warmed over 302 swap.

That particular pic is a Mustang (in case some of you didn't notice) and has a custom intercooler setup. Next year some time I am hoping to install an intercooled Pro-Charger setup... Problem is the piping for the kit is designed for a Mustang-- not T-Bird. Maybe if I pay ATI/Procharger a visit, they'll help me out... (wishful thinking). I'll most likely just end-up buying a bunch of U-bends and welding it up myself.

I can't wait to see Rancher's final product. I may just have to sell my RX-7 so I can remain competitive with him.

ya know I never payed attention to the engine bay just the engine itself, upon further inspection it's certainly a 'Stang.
