convince me to come to the dark side!!
Ok guys, I'm at the point with my stang where I really want to finally get to finance my 5.4 rebuild. I have a 98 gt vert with a stock longblock 5.4 dohc navi-headed, boss 302 intake with bolt-ons. I have planned on an e85 nasty N/A build. Now that i recently moved to VA, I've realized they must not believe in e85. The original plans were 12.5:1, lightweight rotating assembly, e85, possibly carb'd, fully built navi or cobra heads...... shooting for a torque-monster. Now with that budget in mind, I've been contemplating on a reasonably priced 6.0 higher compression, cammed, N/A carb'd or efi swap and sell what i have now to offset the cost.
With all that said, I know a good est. on what a built 5.4 will make. I need to know what kind of power and torque can come of a naturally aspirated 6.0 with a reasonable budget. So, convince me with some numbers on some mild builds only N/A. I'm open to stroked 6.0's, aftermarket headed, bolt-on's, or even just cammed and exhaust.
It would be great if some of you could list your dyno numbers and what are your set-up's. I am open to 5.3's or any other swaps as well.
