    OK I have a 95 Mustang GT 5.0L
    I've decided on a build finally
    I'm going with a on3 turbo kit
    Getting a 00 Explorer 5.0 block for that low end torque
    Going to do a rebuild on it new rings, bearings etc. Might O ring the block, haven't decided yet
    Then get a 4R70W transmission with 3:73 gears (I daily the car)
    Trick flow heads, trick flow typhoon intake, stock bottom end, stock TB, stock cam. Is this a bulletproof budget build or should I add more? I have a 5-6k budget and this is what I came up with

    Ive been messing with 5.0s for quite awhile. I would not "build" anything with a stock block. You would be pushing the limits with just the on3. My advice is buy the on3 kit. Put that on the stock motor. Then build a good 4 bolt main motor and swap your turbo kit to it.
