    So its a supercharger away from being a terminator setup.

    Better than a terminator setup. The pistons are deck height for a tighter squish, the rods are lighter for faster revs, and the block is aluminum so it’s lighter from the get go. And @white95, you can’t forget those high dollar custom cometic head gaskets.

    I am going to get a Mark VIII 4.6 4V tomorrow for $400. So I will be learning a lot on my own quickly. I will definitely try to utilize all the knowledge here that is available. Have a pretty good performance shop machinist down the road too. Tap his brain might be good for me also.

    It has a ton of potential.

    That’s true. You also set the rings for about 20 psi and I forgot the 3V windage tray.

    Check prestige mustang or MPS auto salvage, they have a ton of an 95 stuff and have had good luck in the past getting parts from both places
