If youre early 3.8 w/ single port ya might look into a super coupe build... same general numbers as a stock v8 swap but I think less hassel, maybe? If you have all the parts :) I could be wrong - if so, disregard my post =P

True.. but work + hp for the money it's not a bad idea. I realize we could go on and on with the whole idea that, if you do this why not just this, then if this then why not this. I stop at if you're gonna drop in a motor and want v8 power - I like the super coupe :) If you wanna go faster, yea ur gonna need 8 cylinders

yeah i know its alot more involved. idk if it was me in his situation i would do i 5.4 in a heartbeat
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!

It's all in how ya built it man. I have seen 600 + HP 4 bangers.
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!

Dropping in something thats not your stock block is always gonna be labor intensive. Or just require the perfect online walkthrough...
