Hello, my name is Richard Brown. 19 years old from Lethbridge Alberta,Canada.
Thought I'd make a little build thread on my v6.
Its a 1994 Mustang with a 4.2 v6 swap (98-f150) with m112 supercharger.
The car was purchased in Coaldale Alberta (short drive from Lethbridge) on Feb 6 2007 as a father-son project, guess that made me 12 years old at the time (same as the age of the car). We were looking for a project car, mainly for a fox body, but came across this sn95 in the paper. The car was in pretty rough shape and had just been used as a donor car for a GT that hit a deer. However the car still had potential and was towed home the next day. Since then I have fallen in love with the sn95 body style and glad we came across it. All the work done to the car has been done by my father and I in a standard two car garage, including the paint. This is my first car and the vehicle I learned how to drive standard on, which was terrifying.
Here's some quick pics of the major works of the build. I can provide more of specific things if people are interested.
So this is how it started off as:
Got a 00 Cobra R style hood, cobra bumper and bullitts
engine bay paint
Putting engine in the car
Now body work...
Lastly,to put a supercharger designed for a v8 on a v6.
Used a special adapter plate from SSM.
Now for the finished result!
Here's a list of the mods done to the car.

This is what it looks like today!
Number wise, there's still a few bugs in it. But my most resent dyno with plugged cats and bad o2 sensors did:
On Mustang Dynamometer
As a comparison a stock 3v V8 Mustang does about 225 RWHP on this dyno!
On Dyno-Jet (Estimated, 14% more)
At Flywheel (Estimated)
Once its running smoothly it should be at the 300whp mark.
I think thats good for now!
Thanks for looking!
