How much would it cost to do all of this to the stock block? Is it cost effective or is it just better to go Aluminator? Anyone know? I might think about it just so I do not worry.

I have been told the Aluminator route takes about $8-10K if you use your old blower.

not sure FR is still making the 4.6 Aluminator. give Michael (L&M) a call, he may want to bump up your stock block to a 302 stroker. he did a get job for us on the 08 SGT. the 4.6 Aluminator is in the 08 Bullitt

Had my FR 550 w/ 11 ibs of boost for two years now with no issues. I put it on the strip one time, but did not push her to the limit. Aside from that, I do not beat on her either. I will blow some carbon out of the pipes every once in a while, but thats all. It was originally dyno'd at 479 at the rear tires. It's a fun car.
