    Hello everyone. I am looking for guidance on just how to hop up my '02 GT. She's silver slate metallic with black top and trim. I want a daily driver that makes 400 hp and gets 23 mpg. I have a connection for swaps from higher horse stockers (Cobras, Mach 1s, etc), but would a complete build be better? Or should I add power to the stock 4.6 and see how long it lasts? Thanks, eb

    I would recommend a ProCharger, Sticky tires, and upgraded suspension.

    That sounds easy enough. I didn't think a 2V 4.6 had the guts to hold up for long under pressure like that.

    It's all in the tune. People say the limit is 400hp on the stock motor, but I've seen people make more.
