Ok, so this winter I am going to be doing some modding. I have decided to stay with the stock internals for now mainly because my parents wont let me build an engine in my garage lol.

I have decided to go FI, I still dont know what though. I think that is going to depend on whatever pops up for sale when i have the cash. I should have enough for something mid to late december.

Dang sounds like you have a lot to do. And since you have the LTs I would recommend a SC unless you are fine selling them.

If you go turbo, can I buy your LT's? Can't wait to see what you do regardless.
Sure, although im sure shipping would suck and im most likely going to go procharger or vortech. Unless a super good deal pops up on a turbo kit.

Also just bought one of these for my gauges, im thinking boost and wideband. Would i really even need any other gauges?

get cobra gauges but get rid of the red SVT on them. with the cam and ported heads youll be shifting well after 6k so the crappy v6 tach wouldn't be the best IMO the cobra goes up to 8k i believe

steven says its good for about 5 foot pounds of torque only cost me like $20 anyway

Nice build list bruh. . . .I'm suprised esg recommended the 218/226 .5 108 cam.
I asked for it, its the one 6stang99 had and i bought it before i decided i was going FI.

lol knowing him, he probably didnt, SF probably asked for it :p
yep :lol

its a street car, and im not swapping out the mach ones, i had them custom made. plus getting rid of the SVT and making it work in the sixxer would cost too much.
