    Default 4 valve engine rebuild help

    So i'm completely ready to drop my wap 4.6 4v from an 04 mach 1 into my 2000... i'm going w/ a vortech v2 T-trim supercharger pushing it around 16psi w/ an fmic... So to do that i'm gonna forge everything and rebuild. i've never rebuilt a mod motor, but my buddies are professional mechanics, i know my way around, have the 2004 mustang workshop manual and a really good write up... so i'm just wondering who has done this rebuild before and what were your big issues in the process? The list of stuff is as follows : 18cc dished manley pistons, eagle I beams, stock forged crank, clevite main and rod bearings, arp side bolts, and an mmr 7qt pre tapped oil pan... i'm still shopping for head gaskets and head studs... I know i should go fel pro and arp... but its soo damn expensive... i'm not one to complain about it and I know if I skimp on just one thing, that is what will fail... any suggestions on that? Like where to find them for a decent price, or a different brand? Also, the spark plug thing is makin my head spin.... so many out there... what are you running and what gap is best? Plugs wont be much more than 100 bucks on the top end, so what is best? Also, am i missing anything? Thanks in advance, -Dylan

    Pretty bad choice in colors there. may be easier to help out if it was easier to see.

    It all depends on how well equipped your tool arsenal is. The more specialty tools you have the easier this will be. Makes sure the machine work is taken care of before you ever start. The build itself is pretty straight forward. As long as you have all the torque sequences available and the clearances spec out...the build will be no problem for ya.

    yeah, i'm not planning on any machine work, just honing the cylinders... the shop on base has tons of specialty tools, and theres a harbor freight shop right down the street.
