do you mean you just want to re-build a block or re-build a forged internal block. you can get stock pistons and rods from ford for like 150 bucks, or forged stuff for around 800.

it might be hard to find a drop in SVT motor, even if you do its gona cost you.

if ur going NA, its prolly not worth it, just get a stock block. if you do a serious NA build and plan on using race fuel, then go forged internals. If not, then just go OEM.

I "think" its more like $135 per piston/rod combo (rings come on them)..... so you'll need 4 of them.

With the price of rod/rings/pistons from Ford unless you can find some lightly used ones I would just get the eagle rods and your choice pistons. It won't be a great deal more and you will have a better engine for doing so.
