    400 rwhp is possible with a 4v, but it will likely be very aggressive for the street and cost you a pretty penny. If i were to do a 400 rwhp 4v id probably go with a good high compression stroker kit, aggressive NA cams, and ported/ polished heads. That would get you around 400..

    Now, there is no such thing as a 2001 mach 1 motor. The mach 1 as only made in 03/04. First off, confirm your engine. Different mustangs have different blocks and internals. For example manual transmission mach 1's have a forged crank. So that right there is some cost savings...

    Get back to us on what you're looking at budget wise, drivability wise and what the condition and kind of motor you have is.

    Heres some web sites to gain some insight..

    Its all good man. its safe here (unless you're spreading bad tech) ...... everyone here was a noob once. Except Paul he invented the internet and inspired Lee Iaccoca.

    Any who like stated there wasn't a 2001 mach 1.

    Post lots of pics and we can help your figure it out.

    So do you have a complete long block?

    I used mod max racing for my parts. They have some forged I beams on the cheap!!!! Pistons you'll want some high compression. Look to spend about 1100 on rods, pistons, rings, bearings.

    Then like I said, you're one step ahead with a forged crank and a aluminum block.

    the motor had 7000 miles on it when it was taking out then it was in a crate then water got into his garage and the motor had water in he didnt want to deal with it so ibought it budget wise i want to build it over a year or so i no its goin to cost a good amount but i figured i go alittle at a time u no do u think the dry shot is a mistake? or should i build a supercharged motor the prob im having is all the supercharger kits i have been seeing are alittle high

    Dry shot or boost is a personal choice. You can do plenty of damage with either hahaha.

    Nitrous can get expensive fast..... refills and all the fun accessories
