    alright, ive redone my whole mustang and it looks pretty damn fast, its quick, but nothing spectacular. Ive got a chance to buy a 308 motor, blueprinted/balanced and spun to 12 grand, s trim s/c with 14pounds of boost, trickflow heads, intake, the works, i dont remember the injectors, but they were big, 58 mil throttle body, TKO? tranny, some badass clutch that was 600 alone, motor is sposed to be pulling around 500 at the wheels, car runs mid 10s i guess, whole set up for 6k, should i get a loan and go for it or build my own? Motor has maybe 2k miles on it. Guy got broke so hes gotta sell.

    If your talking about getting a mid 10's motor (1/4 mile) already equipped with an S trim S/C, and the clutch to go with it for $6k, that sounds like a deal to me. A new Vortech S Trim S/C alone is going to be $4-6k minimum depending on the application.

    Why even bother, if your gonna use it for street use. There is no point, I don't even understand how hopping up a 302 sounded like a good idea. If you want a drag car, use a 351W it's a tight squeeze but it fits without having to replace the hood. A 351W can pull those numbers with little work. 6K is a rip off, oh and you shouldn't be taking a loan out for these kind of things. If you have to pull a loan for an engine I think you got other things to worry about first.
