Seems to be no info in this thread.
Is that buying an entire motor or just a stroker kit, or a core swap?You can get a very nice N/A stroker engine for around 7,000.
Lets just say I am sure that SHM didn't suffer any quality problems do to this particular person leaving. To insinuate otherwise is just dumb and shows a lack of business experience and lends itself to the ...Corral CockRoaches. Overpriced? You aren't even on the same planet with that reply. I work with some of the best engine bulders on earth and to say they are overpriced is rediculous.stang99svt said:Theirs a small company up here in michigan that has been doing stroker kits for Mercury Marauders and Mustangs. 5.0 and 5.3
I know they did some ones 97 cobra on the corral some where.
The individule whom was doing the work is named Greg VanPeenen. Been building nascar engines for awhile.
Anyway I beleived he did a 97 4.6 DOHC to a 5.3L with fully ported head work, Forged JE pistons, oliver rods, new cobra crank forged. Tons of other parts. Pretty much complete everything for like 7000-75000. thats with a core block. I think he was only offering that price before x-mas. Not sure now. But was pushing 450Hp with the 5.3 stroker.
Their are some turbo stang s running aorund but not many 4.6 modular turbo vehicles probably less then a dozen or so, perhaps two dozen. (?)
SHM stuff is over priced. I know one of the engineers whom left SHM motorsports and works for another well known company most mustang people buy from. (Don't want to say who) but he told me that SHM wasn't what it was all cracked up to be. I've meet Sean at many ford events. SEMA, PRI and some ford dinners and he enevr really seems to be that friendly.
A stock bottom end of a cobra motor can takea great deal of abuse. I've rarly heard of anyone killing a cobra crank yet. The main issues with our vehicles are the pistons and rods, well then the oil problems, then move on to the return style fuel system.
But I've seen people over at PHP push 550+ on stock engines with a vortech V-1 and still keep the engine running very well.
