Default 5.0 GT Motor Build - Machine Shop?

Hey guys,

I'm a complete newbie when it comes to the Mustang here in Orange County, CA but have been around the block with a few other import cars.

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?

THanks!

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.

I copied this thread to the S197 General Discussion area to get some more exposure but will leave this thread here incase someone knows a good shop in the OC to go to.

I would absolutely do a shortblock from MMR out west. They can hook you up and their prices are reasonable. I'm partial to ProCharger, but pretty much any power adder will get you there. However, the UPR-spec Procharger is STOUT!
