+1. Then the old parts from the V6 plus the parts not used from the donor car can all be sold off to take down the overall cost of the swap.your best off getting a whole donor car to pull everything out of as needed.
There was a video posted around here a while back of a V6 making something like 450hp on stock internals. And we've had a few people make 500hp+ (I think at least one broke into the 600s) on built motors. Your V6 has more potential than you're giving it credit for, but it's going to take some money. You can do the same thing with a V8 and it's still going to cost quite a bit. Either way, if you're building the hell out of the car then you're going to end up with a badass car. In the end, it's really just your preference. But I can say it would be awesome to have a V6 that was smoking the **** out of V8s (because we all know a lot of V8 owners don't believe a V6 could actually beat them).What your guys opinions. I plan on keeping this car forever. Im 24 now, just graduated college with a bachelors in marketing, no kids or wife (yet). Wedding coming within a year or 2. I got a decent job as a restaurant manager.
I got a v6 mustang thats going to b e paid off in 2months. Ill have extra money that i can spend. I could get a supercharger or turbo for the 6 and id be paying like 4k and with a built motor i could get about 350rwhp. That would be prob about the max on the v6.
On the other hand i could drop about the same (or more) money put a v8 in the car which wouldnt be as much power...BUT long term would be able to create much more power.
The question is what would you do?
I should also comment that 450hp on stock internals probably isn't safe :dunno
Well he just can't go over 2500 rpms lol
