2000 Mustang Gt Short Block - Where to find?


Hey guys i've reached the conclusion that if i buy a new motor i'm going to buy a 2000 mustang gt short block and also buy trickflow heads with a good cam to suit the heads (ideas welcome) What cams are you guys running with your trickflow heads ^^? my car will be a daily driver.


anyways my question is where can i find a re manufactured short block to buy?

Thanks!

i would go with either the TF cams that are designed to go with the top end kit OR my favorite is the COMP CAMS stage 2
otherwise there is HiTech, VT, CMS, and a few others

as for the block I'm not sure on re-manufactured, my guess is to google it... or just buy a short block from MMR or DSS

would the mmr shortblock be able to use the same ecu and everything? and also same parts as 99-04 2v's like same heads and everything? as well as all the bolt on's i already have on my old motor?

if not i'm mainly focused on finding the 2000 gt 2v motor, re manufactured =P


p.s i love your spoiler delete, good thinking, love the looks of no spoiler

MMR does not manufacture blocks to my knowledge. Do you know the difference between Windsor and Romeo blocks? You may want to start researching that first.

I would have to agree with him bc right now your goals seem to be a little over 300++rwhp but ive read your past threads and you have mentioned some bigger numbers the most I seen as far as your goal was 370rwhp so I would say go with one of the mmr shortblocks. If i ever blow mine thats what I will be doing. Hope that helps ya out a bit.

Thanks again rockwell, sorry for making this such a painful progress i just feel so lost, you guys have done wonders for me.

so this is the block yeah? MMR Street Mod 600 4.6 (up to 600 RWHP) $2599 SALE $2399!!] and i should get the 2v, i assume when i order it i can tell them what heads/cam i want and they will ship it with them on? then i can just simply swap all parts off old motor? and drop her in?

I believe it will still be less expensive if you buy a long block from MMR. The 4.75L (up to 750 hp) motor starts at $4,800. MMR will install the Trick Flow heads for an additional $1,400. You can add cams for $640. They will adjust the compression ratio to your specifications. You will need to buy new valve covers. Windsor valve covers will not fit on Trick Flow heads. I think they told me you can get the Trick Flow valve covers for $300.

Edit: I need to make a correction. I was just told that Trick Flow heads will accept Windsor valve covers. My previous source was apparently wrong and that just saved me $300 if I select that option later.

As far as I know yes. and eagle just hit the nail on the head about getting a longblock. Just dont rush it unless you have to.

Not true not true. Trick Flow heads are drilled for either Windsor or Romeo valve covers. I'm sure of this because I have Windsor valve covers on my Trick Flows.

Your intake manifold is fine. And for everything you need down to the T send a pm to either SSGPATE,NICK, ORI think his screenname is macdizzle. All of your parts including the manifold should swap right over. Its basicly just like getting a new motor but its just built/forged internals. And your ecu should work but you would want to get it tuned as far as i know.

Yes you can swap everything over, if you buy a long block you wont need to change over much, but with this block and trick flow heads you might want to upgrade you TB plenum. you can use your ECM you have now, but you will need a tune. you can reuse your intake manifold BUT if you go with trick flows you will need new valve covers since you have a windsor motor and heads?you will need new gaskets intake maniflod, TB, timing cover if it dont come with the new Longblock, water inlet gasket. check to see if it comes with an oil pan if not you will need that gasket, but you can reuse your stock pan. be sure to hang onto your old transmission Dowels from your old engine. That MMR stroker is a bad ass shortblock I have turned it many timesup to 7000 RPM with a long block you should be able to swap this in 2 days and have it running. any more question please feel free to ask. now I fogot to post this before but do not forget this you stock oil pan can be used as I said previous;y BUT you have to bend down the oil galley at the very front of the pan IF NOT the crank bolt will spin around and hit it.. I noticed this during my install. NICK MACDIZLE you guys check this cause it will hit.

Mine did not hit...did not touch my stock oil pan..Just tossed it on...

Everything will work with the MMR man..They are top of the line and they are the place to go..They have a 1 year warranty and speak to MARK. He is the man and will take care of you. They hold many records and they are the mustang modular guru's!! As you can see, everyone is recommending them. Get you one of these beasts!! I personally run a mmr 900. There customer support is second to none and they will help you along the way with everything you need. They also send you some directions and tells you every little thing that you need to make sure you do so you dont have any catastrophic failures...

Good luck man, Hope to see you rocking a MMR and putting a nice blower on one day and making that big power!!!
