2001 gt conv. steeda shortthrow, mac catback, otherwise stock........
JLW's right there.. you'd spend a lot more trying build 350-400 RWHP out of an N/A block than you would F/I.. Though I'd be careful about running anymore than about 8 psi without an intercooler, maybe 10 with.. And that because the stock 4.6 2v's have both cast crank and rods/hypereutectics.. Going F/I, you're safe up to about 350-375 RWHP.. Much more than that and it's BOOM!!
Hrrmmm.. I've been looking at Maximum Motorsports and Steeda for the forged assemblies myself... though all I need are the rods/rings as the mach came with the same forged crank that was in the 03/04 cobra.. Looking back on it that's probably what I should've done first.. lol
And I'm fairly certain the Bullitt's do make a little more power than the stock 01 2v's do.. don't quote me on that though..
