Lookin for a new motor?
« on: March 15, 2009, 01:29:13 PM »
Nothin at this time is wrong with my current motor but It is starting to get older and in the future would like to do something with it. What is the cheapest way to put a new motor in there? Like I have seen from Ford performance a 4.6 3v with 350 hp and 330 ft lbs of torque for 7,000$ and that includes everything for the motor and that is nice but a little expensive for my taste. Some advice would be great. Thanks.

Run by a machine shop some time and get an estimate for a complete rebuild with a few goodies to boost from 300 to 350 ponies.  Also check with crate motors.  Just google crate motors and you will have all the reading and comparing you can handle.
