    which motor?

    You need to first figure out how much money you have to spend.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Are you going nitrous, turbo, n/a?

    do you have a rear yet?

    what is your trans?

    I would go for it if you dont have to do to much to make it handle the power of the motor... Its also much more fun to build your own.

    R.A.D its a shop in my area. They do great work. And also Cottons Performance was going to install it and maybe do some other work. They are a very well known Grand National builder.

    which motor? the one i listed above haha thats all i'm asking. if anyone knows anything about a build like this and what it will do. i will do nos but i'm talking just motor. and as for the rear end and trans i'll take care of that eventually with a ford 9 and a viper trans. but I just want to know about the motor and if its worth the price and basically what it will do? like what hp? I was hoping someone would have a similar build and tell me a little about it

    That makes more sense the. IMO I would pass on it. I would think you would be mid to high 400's in power.

    for that price you could get much more power on a budget build... at first i tohught the 5k was the total price and that wouldn't be to bad... but the 7k price makes it a bad option...
