imaginary build thread

willkommen to my "imaginary" build thread***

the build has begun!

- MHS/Excessive Racing Budget 600HP Shortblock w/ Windage Tray
Excessive Racing 4.6L Budget Shortblock - 600 HP Capable
- MHS Eddy Intake Combo Kit
MHS Edelbrock 4.6L 2V Intake Manifold Combo - 1999 - 2004
- Vortech V3 "Tuner" Supercharger Kit (ordered) w/ CX Racing Intercooler
- Swapping from Trickflow 70mm to 75mm Throttle Body
http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...-Throttle-Body
- UPR K Member & Coilover Kit
http://www.uprproducts.com/mustang-p...er-kit-96.html

I'm going to be keeping the CMS Stage II NA Cams and see how they perform. Obviously I'm going to lose some HP/TQ in the process, but that is fine by mine. I can always swap them out later.

Going w/ 42lb Green Top Injectors along w/ an AEM 320LPH Fuel Pump (currently already purchased as I tried out E85).


As for right now; just ordered the Vortech V3 Tuner Kit from Brenspeed. Yea buddy!

Are you mainly doing street driving?
Also UPR has a corral.net discount code for 6% off. Saved me like $35.

I would sell your cams and buy a set made for your application before doing anything else. There is no need In making a setup like you have and cutting corners where it matters the most.

Your contradicting yourself when you say you want to make x amount of HP then say you don't care if you lose HP by running the wrong cam.

i may. CMS blower cams aren't expensive. as it currently stands, im not expecting anything fantastical as far as #'s go. i've been let down by looking at my dyno sheets in the past lol if i can beat a car w/ x amount of HP, then im happy to know i have more than that car does.

i also know that i will be limited due to the cams but also due to the 42lb injectors and possibly the fuel pump.

if i hit 500 or close to it, i'll be satisfied. sure there's always room for improvement. changing pulleys, bigger injectors and blower cams. i just wanna get the big stuff outta the way first, ie supercharger and shortblock.

Always do the big items first like cams, and you can always add fuel later cause that doesn't require near the work that cams do, and since you motor is already out its a good option. things are looking good keep it going!

This is the wrong forum for this. I'm not usually someone who cares and I've had posts that have been moved, but I sometimes will spend 15-30 minutes trying to find the information I once saw that might help someone and I've crawled under the car to take a picture that might help them. I don't intend to do that for an imaginary thread.

Nice man, you'll love the vortech. You gonna run it on the stock bottom end for a few ? If so how much boost? And gonna run the stock motor on e85?

Pate, I do agree... But NA cams actually work good with a centri. Obviously not ideal. But those cams and the blower will max out that bottom end. I think it'll work good.

But, if it were me. When I put the motor in, I'd just buy a centri ground set of cams while it's apart.

Good luck with the build!

Thanks man. Yea I'm thinking of tossing in the vortech while i wait for the shortblock. What's the most the stock bottom end can handle?

I may even go back to E85

Go e85 and run like 8-10psi. It'll do great. The general consensus is like 425rwhp max. But plenty of people have gone past that.

I made 415rwhp @ 11psi on the dyno. After I was making 13psi on the stock motor. So If I had to guess, I'd say at the very least 440rwhp I was making.
