    I am looking at modifying my engine power in my 1993 mustang gt. I was looking at getting the trickflow top end kit with the street burner intake. After I add everything up, trickflow kit, oil pan, water pump etc. it seems like for not to much more money i could get a crate drop in motor with the same horsepower? I have a friend who is a mechanic and does all my work to the car and he is the one that pointed out that his labor would be the same to do an engine swapout or a rebuild for me. What is everyones opinion? Also what engine and from where would you suggest I get it from. I am not looking for anything to crazy, just a fun weekend driver with an ocassional track run. Thinking maybe 400 hp? with the option to add a supercharger in the future. Any advice or opinions would be helpful.

    Thank you

    cheapest crate moter i've seen is about 3850$ for the FRPP 340hp 306 but that doesnt include induction system. To get 400hp N/A you will need to build/buy a new moter. That comes with a BOSS block which is stronger than the factory block but the internals wont take alot of supercharging. Look into DSS racing/CHP/ or especially RNH racing...(Ricks GT) who is a stangnet sponser contact him. He can point you in the right direction.
