Ok, so need opinions.

just found out my SVT motor is toast. its got a JRSC on it. now, i'm not sure how much its worth, but i'm wondering, should i rebuild the current motor or drop in another stock motor or build another, and if i go that route, should i go turbo and sell the SC??? I'd like to as i know i can get a lot more power. what do you think? cost is somewhat of an issue here. i'm figuring i can rebuild the motor for less than 1k. but not sure. i'm kinda at a crossroads and from what i've been reading, its better to decide now. so, option 1), drop a stock motor in. 2, rebuild current motor, or rebuild current motor and turbo. so what do you think?

really looking for people who have gone that route or similar route and what did you end up paying?

what is your overall goal? a fun daily driver? or a track warrior? i mean, 350 whp is a little less DD able. but can be done. just remember all the other stuff you have to upgrage. the clutch, (flywheel), diff, Fueling, and of course a tune. after that, (not including the cost of a turbo kit), your talking about 2500 in upgrades MINIMUM listed above.

well, i would like to beat a mustang, but i dunno if thats feasible, don't get me wrong, i love the JRSC, but it doesn't quite allow me to "beat" a mustang, its quick, but not fast. i think i wanna go for fast. as for mods, i have a FX300 clutch, and a Quaife diff, so i'm good there. what is requred for fueling?
