There is only one site I have found for cam and that's supersixmotorsports. Where can I find pulleys, electric water pump, and the ds, also what kind of weight reduction ? I would still like to keep my daily driver looking good

Unless you go custom then I think that Supersix Motorsports is the only source for heads/cams.

For the driveshaft -- you can't beat the Shaftmasters! www.shaftmasters.com
Great product, great service, and the best price.

I am getting a second V6 intake manifold so I can take it apart. I have a GT500 supercharger that I picked up cheap and I need to make or modify the lower intake to use this. I've looked at lower intakes from 4.0 explorers and they look like they could be modified to work but I'll start with a V6 one. I know that Popeye on the Mustang Collective Forums had one made to put his GT500 supercharger on but his lower intake will be too large for what I need. I am keeping my stock GT500 hood so I need to make this work. I don't have the $$ for buying explorer express' x-charger. If I could buy just their lower intercooled intake that would be perfect but I'm sure they won't just sell me that. I have picked up everything off ebay and the SVTPerformance website from people modifying their GT500's. My total so far for everything minus the lower intake I'm at almost $600, well under $1000 mark. To buy EE's Xcharger I'm looking at $4000.

The issue isn't the blower itself - you have to be able to mount it to the car. So you need a lower intake that matches up to the intake ports on your engine if you use a roots type (like the Xcharger) and that lower intake has to have the mounting holes in all the right spots to bolt to your block and for the blower to bolt into. If you use a centri, then you have to fabricate the air intake to fit your car. For both, you will have to fabricate your own pulley system and mounting - and make sure that your belt is properly lined up because if one of the pulleys is mis-aligned you will shred the belt.

You will also need to determine the proper size injectors and replace those so you don't run out of fuel.

After that, you have to find someone to tune the car. You can't just slap a blower on it and drive on the stock tune.

So yes, you can buy all the bits and pieces and put something together. But you are on your own as far as R&D work and fabrication to make it all fit.
