hypothetical 4.6l s/c vs. 4.8l s/c

This is a discussion on hypothetical 4.6l s/c vs. 4.8l s/c within the Kill Stories forums, part of the Racing Forums category; I've seen them in the upper 300's with a ton of work done....

    Yeah, the one I saw was sitting right around there. But it had a DSS stroker block, stage 3 cams, stage 2 or 3 heads, all the supporting bolt-ons...you name it, it had it. When I did a rough estimate on everything he had, I saw why guys go the blower route instead on those motors.

    Well yeah a set of heads is like 5k and another 2k for cams and another 2k for the valve train. Thats 9k and you havent even gotten to the internals or accesorys yet. It would probably close to 15-17grand for the whole engien to be done up and you only make 380rwhp

    As I told you in the past I financed a Crystal White 1998 Mustang Cobra in 2003 from a dealership in Folsom, CA. The car came with a Vortech A or B??? -trim already on it. I looked into Sean Hyland Motorsports and DSS's catalog for 4.6L parts, and found they were just much to costly. Not that I couldn't afford it, it just wasn't logical to buy cams & heads for the gain you get from them. For gosh sakes, the FR500 intake is around $3100, just for a manifold.
