Having more cubic inches is a dream for us, now instead of the $5k-$6k for a supercharger, how about having a 5.8L Modular under the hood? check outMMR's new 351ci modular block in thier website, main page, scroll down...

And since 302 strokers are reported to gain around 30-50hp and similar torque gains, I can only imagine what a 10:1-11:1 compression 5.8L with cams and heads will feel like!!

"NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT"

Now if you went with that, what other things would you have to upgrade on your car to make everything work smooth?
BTW it's not an old school pushrod 351W, It's a modular 5.8L based on the 5.4L Aluminum block from the Ford GT which Ford sells for around $2500 I believe, so adding that block to your list of mods os more like stroking the 4.6 to 5.0 except that the 5.4 or 5.8 block for that matter is "taller" so no worries about engine mountsand such, the only things I would worry about is:
1) The 4.6 Intake manifold doesn't fit the 5.4
2)What modificationsare required to work with the stock transmission?

Putting a 427W or a 460 big block in an S197 is a cool idea though

My bad on the Modular thing...
Now a 427/460 out of a Windsor is a small block still.
It's the whole idea, not adding the weight of a true big block.

If I could only find another LL car... I already know what mill will go in it.
