I believe the most ive heard has been like 280 to the wheels, that was on a 99+ motor too. With the split port heads, stroked out to 4.2 and a bunch of other work done too

The single port motor has a lot of potential with forced induction, but shine1stang is right. The high power v6 guys are usually running split port engines.

I'd recommend a split port swap. It's supposedly silly easy to do so, and 99-04 split ports are plentiful and dirt cheap. While you're at it, it's best to find a 4.2 engine from a truck/van, as it's basically the same engine and swaps out just as easily. For all of the H/C/I work you'd be doing on the single port, might as well put the small extra effort and do the swap.

Does anything have to done as far as the electronics if you swap a split port into say a '97V6 car?

1985 LTD LX, small truck motor, painted axle tubes, various mustang stuff.

Yes. You'd need to utilize the wiring harness from the split port engine. There 's also a minor fuel delivery change, as split ports use a returnless style system.

Overall though, the changes are very minor. As a guide, here's a how-to for swapping heads/intake from an existing single port to make it a split port. This will be a very close guide for what needs to be changed for a full 3.8/4.2 split port engine swap:

If you swap motors you could use the e-250's van fuel rail witch is a return style for splitport heads.

That's a good option. They're pretty cheap if you can find one in decent condition too.

do you need the supercoupe computer to properly run the car or will the stock v6 5spd computer work?

1993 LX 331 5spd. The usual stuff.
