My only objection is that I bought a complete 3.8 split port 99 (no MIRC) for $100 w/ a bad rod bearing. Tear down and rebuild for ~ $1200 and you're back up and running for cheap and more hp considering he's single port upgrading to split port... But like my previous post, the more money and time you have the faster you can make it go!yeah i know its alot more involved. idk if it was me in his situation i would do i 5.4 in a heartbeat
Word! My buddy has a 2.3t monster!! I'm a full bolt on V6 split port w/ 75 shot wet just to keep up... and he's building a faster one. You can build those motors with a good hp number for a good price as well, I agree w/ u!It's all in how ya built it man. I have seen 600 + HP 4 bangers.
