Forced Induction or spend a **** load of money and time building up the motor if you want to go normally aspirated route.

You definitely have some achievable goals! The 3V's can make big power, pretty easily. I would recommend going with Forced Induction and on low boost, you'd be sitting right around 420-450 RWHP! You could also go with a 100-150 shot of Nitrous and get to a similar power level.

This is what I would recommend! Feel free to hit up my CS team if you have any questions or need some assistance. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.

Forced induction= supercharger/turbocharger. Other option would be nitrous. But hoenstly with a 4.6 platform that is by far the cheapest way to get your goals.

what would be the price range for these force inductions so i know im not getting ripped off. also thinking about getting a bama tuner from americanmuscle.com would that be worth it or is there a better tuner or don't worry about the tune.
