Start with a higher number of cylinders or be prepared to spend $$$. I feel bad for 6er guys. Everything is way more expensive.

I've got the same intake, I didn't know anyone else had it on the site.

Not at all, in fact, you couldn't be further from the the truth. They're no more expensive than the v8 stuff and sometimes cheaper, we just have fewer companies provideing the parts is all. The similarities between the 3.8 and the 5.0/5.8 are rediculous, our stroker packages use 351/408 rods, they aren't that expensive. A fully forged rotating assembly that will hold 900hp is only $1700. For cams, I only need 1, where the 4 valve guys need 4 and the 2 valve guys need 2. I also only need 3/4's of the rocker, lifters, pushrods, and springs as the 5.0/5.8 guys. A 3.8 has MUCH greater structural integrity than a 5.0.

To say you can't fast with a 6 without spending a ton money is rediculous. I figured my budget and for my twins, forged long block, stage 3 heads, t-56 swap, rear end build, and cage, it's gonna run me about $10-12k to make sure I do it all correctly and safely. That will net me an EASY RELIABLE 650hp for "street" driving with the capability of holding a little over 850Rwhp before the the tranny would need some more upgrades.

Go ahead and price out a similar package for a GT, you'll spend around the same, if not more. Then deduct the price difference between the two cars in stock form and you'll see that the 6 is a very viable option. It's also nice to weigh about 400lbs less than a GT off the showroom floor as well.

A good friend of mine is over the 10k mark already with his MMR block, trickflow heads, 2.8KB, T-56 swap, and all the other little things, and he doesn't even have a cage.

With my car, people tend to think I have TONS of money in performance, but really, most of it is in all the little things that people don't think about, paint, wheels, tires, interior stuff, bolt-ons, the things that make any project expensive. Really it's a just a bolt-on modified 3.8 with a supercharger, and it's fun as hell, and engine wise, there's only maybe a few grand I've spent including the aluminum flywheel and driveshaft. I think my engine has maybe 10 things done to it, and other than the supercharger and some porting, it's just basic stuff. I've spent less money on performance than the cost difference, at the time I purchased it, for a GT, and it's faster than a GT.

There's a lot of thought into your post, lol. Par for the course since you own a 6er, I guess. I've priced out parts for building V6's and they are more expensive. The initial cost of the vehicle doesn't matter since you can buy either in what ever condition to support the price. 300rw isn't that hard, it's the higher numbers that I'm referring to. You wont get to my level or above without dropping some serious jack and have it be reliable.

There's two distinct sounds I like when it comes to autos. The deep rumble of low rpm V8's and High Rev v6's. IDC what car people drive so don't think I'm looking down on you for owning a 6.

Do you have any videos of your car? Did you build it all at once or do it piece by piece. I wish I would have been able to get a before and after dyno of my Edel intake. I think it is the most direct flow intake ever made for the 4.6. IDK why so many people are afraid of going with it.

Hell yeah I'm gonna jack your thread! lol

I'll never make 650 on my current setup, but stroker and twins, no problem.

built everything in the car for a true beating over the last year. then in the last 4 months went retarded and did the entire drivetrain and fuel system. lol

no vids yet, but coming soon i can promise you that! will be doing the dyno next week sometime.

this intake was a no brainer to me once i looked at it and saw the price. then i had it ported on top of that just for shits and giggles. thing has much more volume than the others, unless you get the logan or riechard racing. but those cost 5x as much.
