    93 Supercoupe ShortBlock Rebuild Questions

    Hey guys, I have a nitrous'd 97 3.8 Mustang and am building a new motor for it.

    I will be using a 93 supercoupe shortblock w/ Ross Forged Pistons, 93-95 SC Rods. Here are my questions.

    1. What size main bearings, rod bearings, and cam bearings do i need? Any brand recommendations? What place sells them cheapest?

    2. What rod bolts should I use for the 93-95 rods?

    3. Any recommendations for main studs?

    4. I need to use a 93 balancer and crank pulley. Do they make UD crank pulley's for SC's?

    5. Do I need rod bushings for the 93-95 rods?

    That is all I can think of for now. Any links or part #'s to the parts mentioned above would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Zach

    1.any 89-95 bearings will work

    2. ARP rod bolts (they are similar to 2.3L bolts I believe), or ask ARP who carries the V6 packaged rods(ARP doesnt sell them direct for the SC)

    3.ARP

    4.yes, but its setup for the SC accessories(ASP makes it)

    5. 89-93 rods are the same as the regular 3.8 rods I believe, 94/95 are free floating and weigh slightly more(stronger), you need the small end rod bushings if they are worn out

    6. try SCCOA "Links" for links
