    Newbie

    Hey guys,

    I own a 2000 Mustang. I originally had it cammed, longtubes, exhaust, windstar, 4.10s/tlok, and tuned blah blah blah..

    Well I ran into a few engine problems so I decided to go with my 89 super coupe motor I had bought a few weeks before for a second project. I currently am about to throw this motor in but it does not have the forged internals and all the goodies. I have been buying a lot of extra accessories for this motor but have not gotten to the short block yet. I also do know I need either a return style fuel system or fab this fuel rail to not run return style.

    Would it be a good idea to run 94-95 rods? I am on a tighter budget right now
    What I have for this motor.
    90mm Maf
    75mm throttle body
    Cam
    Valve springs
    Magnum pushrods
    95 mustang timing cover
    Longtubes
    Slightly Ported heads
    New valves
    3300 stall
    In need of
    42# Injectors




    Thanks!

    Its doesnt have enough to worry about the rods. When you start upgrading the SC then you can worry about the rods.

    Have an 89 engine with MPX SC 25% Over Driven and no worries. Although going back to 15% just because of the heat issue from the SC.

    ARP head studs with MLH gaskets would be a worth investment.

    Well I'm building the motor to last and don't have to tear it out again. I am thinking of going another route with the supercharger since it needs to be rebuild anyways
