    There are differences throughout the engines but the blocks are basically interchangable.
    Buy the Sean Hyland 4.6 Engine book if you want to learn more about the differences between all the modular engines.

    300 should be real easy with a new 99+ motor and a little squeeze

    1. how much do you wanna spend

    2. do you wanna do it N/A or F/I

    3. there are multiple ways that are about the same price to get to 300HP


    ...and why 300HP?

    If I were you I would just make sure that if 300 is your goal you leave room for more down the road. The first time you drive your car with 300 hp you will love it and then you will soon want more lol
