options for 2V engine build


OK, my 03GT has 96k on it, runs good however im not comfortable moding it with things heads/cams, because of the high mails it's my DD and only car so i want to start building OR buying an engine,

my goals
keep it a 2v blower making around 500HP, at the lowest possible cost I KNOW - I KNOW
i plan on doing everything myself but the machining and tune.

approach/options
this what i can't decide on, im not in any rush and don't have bunch of cash to drop all at once, i was thinking about picking up a whole complete 2v engine. from junk yard
put it in garage and slowly start building it up, and hope to find good deals on parts on.
ebay/craiglist crank-rods-pistons, i like this approach because i can still use my car and not
have her sitting on jack stands all year,

just wanted to hear how all you guys wint about doing this, any advice would help THANKS

MMR does layaway?

OP, that was my idea of how I was going to build a motor. I was going to find a decent deal on a stock GT motor and take it apart in my spare time and build it up.

Just look around. I just bought a complete mark viii motor (teskid block) with an extra set of heads for $250. I then found a set of modmax rods/mahle pistons bnib for $440 on svtperformance. I'm gonna have a shop build it though.

Modular mustang racing=MMR. They build engines. A stock iron 4.6 block is good above 500 hp but most, if going over, switch to a teskid aluminum block. They came in Lincoln mark 8's and the 96-98 cobra. Same company makes Italian supercar blocks. They're good over 1000 horsepower.

After several builds here are the parts I consider to be the best for most applications.
Teksid block and crank, $300-$500 from most junkyards. Have a good engine shop measure the walls and tell you what size pistons to order.
Mahle pistons...Best out there. I don't care what anyone says I have compared all the pistons and you cannot beat the Mahle setup. They come with rings and tool steel wrist pins. Do the math and they are abotu the cheapest you can get for the quality. They are already phosphorus coated and have teflon coated skirts.
Rods, use the 03/04 cobra rods. Cheap strong and light so it won't cost you a fortune to have it balanced.
All you have left is to figure out what you are doing for heads and to get all your gaskets and studs. The oil pump I prefer the melling unit.
