5.0 Stroker or 4.6 for Turbo?


What the title says... what would be better and why?

Stick with a 4.6 its cheaper. Also the motor is square with the stock stroke.

Well I'm getting forged internals, and the stroker isn't really that much more, and I read that a stroker would help a turbo spool faster, but might also limit how fast it can spool? Idk, thats why I'm asking...

It may help slightly with spool but a good turbo grind cam will also help. I would stick to stock stroke and if you want to go bigger go bigger bore like the boss block.

It helps keep the heat of the 7-8 cylanders by routing water out the back of the head to the radiator line.

How much work is involved in that? And is there a link or a how-to for that?

Lethal Performance GEN 2 Head Cooling Mod [LP-GEN2COOLINGKIT] : Lethal Performance, Performance parts for Ford Mustangs

It an easy install. You knock out the freeze plug on the back of the head and install a bung and run a coolant line to the radiator line

I'd say 5.4 or 4.6.

I tossed around the idea of a 5.0 stroker, will all come down to cost for me. ModMax sells a nice stroker kit for under 2k, not sure what power youre trying to push but the one I'm talking about is good for up to 550hp. It didnt state if it was fwhp or rwhp however.

MMR's 5.3L Stroker kit is badass. That guy BobNasty made 393rwhp all motor with that stroker kit, TFS heads, and MHS cams. Some food for thought.

fwhp = front wheel horse power

bhp = break horsepower (the correct term) sorry it drives me nuts.

Also i would buy any rotating assembly thats not good for atleast 700. Cause really if your gonna spend the kind of coin why buy something that can only push a little past stock?

I wouldn't either, just saying, for the price, its not bad for someone not looking to break the bank on a stroker kit.

MMR Mod 900 forged stroker kit is good for 900+HP. They'll even notch the pistons for an aggressive cam for a little extra.

You'll eventually run into a dead end going all motor using the 4.6, but if you do a forged rotating assembly, you always have the security there for FI down the road.

Personally, I would go forged stroker, enjoy the "all motor" bragging rights, once you get tired of that, go FI.

stay 4.6 and just go 20 over....no need to spend money on a stroker...if it would have helped i would have went with 1...all the big name builders talked me out of it because its not needed...your also going 4v so spool would be quick anyway..just do the compression 9:1-9:5......and there is no such thing as slow spooling anymore thanks to billet wheel turbos and since your going 4v there is no need to notch the pistons because there is no need for cams needed that big in a 4v turbo setup anyway..

and yes do the head cooling mod....

Yeah, it's not needed, but how could he not benefit from it? I mean, if you look at a forged rotating assembly, and a stroker kit (which is also forged), they're not far from the same price. So, why not?
