He wants the LEAST amount of work possible. I quoted him so you would see that.

You can build a little 4.0 to be quite nice. Getting the stuff from SuperSix, adding an Explorer Express supercharger kit, and doing a complete exhaust (headers all the way back) would make a wicked little 4.0 Ranger; just make sure your transmission is capable of handling it. If you have an automatic, you might want to look into the upgraded internals from Nick. If you have a manual, a stage 2 clutch would be a wise investment.

According to SuperSix's dyno runs of their products on a 4.0 Mustang, they got 440 RWHP and 388RWTQ. That is some inpressive numbers out of a v6.

I had an 2006 V6 Mustang. Theyre pushing out 210 hp and 240 tq. Basically the same as us.
