Bullitt Mustang Gets Big-Cube 4V .
When it comes to subtle styling the Bullitt Mustangs have to take the award for being the most instantly recognizable. Â Other than the unique Dark Highland Green paint (among select other choices) the Bullitts may be best known for the parts that were omitted in order to achieve a clean, yet menacing, look; items such as a spoiler and fog lights. Â The two modern interpretations (2001 and 2008) of the 1968 orginal also came with a modest power bump over their GT counterparts.
However, modest power does not seem to be an interest ofÂ SVTP MemberÂ ninety5fiveoh (“Michael”); as evidenced by his boosted 5.3L Big-Bore 4V Modular engine build. Â Michael started with an MMR assembled 5.3L shortblock based on the Ford Performance Racing Parts Boss modular block. Â MMR stuffed the block with a Kellogg stroker crank,Â Manley Forged 28cc Dished Pistons, Manley Forged H-Beam Rods, Total Seal Rings, Clevite Bearings, MMR Oil Pump, and a Moroso 8 Quart Oil Pan. Â All that is capped off with a set of Ported 9-Thread 03-04 Cobra Heads and Comp Stage 2 Custom Grind Blower Cams.
While a badass stroked mod-motor can be a lot of fun, adding some boost to the mix can take things to a much more interesting level. Â Michael decided the best way for him to ‘level-up’ was with the superb VMP Performance 2.3L TVS Supercharger. Â Supporting the VMP blower will be a Kooks Based Exhaust System,Â T-56 Â Transmission with Liberty 26-Spline Input Shaft, Spec Aluminum Flywheel, Spec Stage 3+ Clutch,Â 80lb Injectors, Ford GT Pumps, black306 Modified FPDM, and a Modified Factory Fuel Hat and -8 Feed Line.
All that should combine to produce a power plant that would Steve McQueen proud. Â Michael has created a great build thread, with a massive number of pics, on SVTPerformance.com. Â You can check it out by clicking the link below:
