I'm looking to build a 2013 5.0 GT to run 800-1000HP and hopefully high 9's.
I'd like your guys advice on where to get the bottom end built with reduced compression pistons and forged rotating assembly. I can pull the motor myself but want to find a good machine shop.
Also any suggestions as to FI recommendations to run 9's?
Turbo all the way. I know a guy that had a V6 with a Procharger and at 17 PSI he was putting less power down than when he switched to a turbo and ran less boost.
