i have the 4.3L stroker set up, it working out pretty good for me.... spendy though. id wish i would have gone V8/big blockWhat does everyone think about this shortblock?
Can something similiar be built that wouldn't cost as much?
oh i agree completely, i just realized all the extra BS that went with the SSM V6 and probably would have had more fun with a carb set up..... thats what im planning for my SC.... 460ci BBI agree, it's an expensive V6, but if your a V6 fanatic as I am then it's just closer to the top of the line.
I'd do it if I had the $
There are some impressive times being run by V6 fords. Not MN-12's, but there is potential if you want to work on it:I've been staring at the last message for a coupla days now and it has just dawned on me. yea, let me know how fast you can get that sucker going. i'd like to know what kinda numbers you can get with a kit like that. 10 sec. cars? what? better? maybe 9 sec. cars?
I once read an article in 5.0 mustang or muscle mustang & fast fords about a guy who put together a 6 sec thunderbird, but not with the same block. he supposedly used a ford hemi engine (that is if you can really get one). but yeah, this was an all out race car and not a street car. you can check him out on their web page by searching thunderbird. i was pretty impressed, but then again it wasn't even a street/strip car but a whole different machine. :boom: :gotsearch
Drivable, street legal car, no. I think the best we have as of now is low 10's. In a few years, I do believe there will be a few in the 9's
