Long story short I have a friend that’s giving me a 4.6 2V. The motor has a knock. I have been inspired by other members here to explore the mechanic side of my 03 GT. My plan is to forged this motor and drop it into my stang. With the motor having that issue, I want to tear the block right down, are they any reasons I should do this because of the knock ? If so why ? I don’t care about the budget build here, this is for my enjoyment and my own experience. Now I need an end goal here. My current car has a V2 VORTECH si supercharger in it. So in my head I would like to turn up the boost on this car and hit anywhere between 6-700HP. That being said I need direction as to which parts I should shoot for. Do I need to machine the block ? That sort of thing, any sort of encouragement and hell is greatly appreciated. This will be a Year long build and I’m in no hurry to get it done. Just need a plan of action.
