New Member Needs Help !!!!!!!!

i have a Crown Victoria(1993) with me. it is my favorite one. i have some attachments to it as well. it was the first car with which i started driving and like that. Even if i got a BMW Z4 and a Lexus i still love my old car which gives me alot of nostalgea. unfortunately before two days the engine broke down.

i don't want to throw it away. i wish to make her more powerful. but i don't have enough experiance in it. is it possible to add some more powerful engines to it. my friends have Impala and LS1 engine and i wish to make my car more stronger and powerful than their.

i wish to get your valuable comments regarding it.

I'm not sure what you mean or how far you're looking to go with more powerful engines, but some people have swapped the Lightning's 5.4L Supercharged motor into their Vic and others have gone the Cobra route with the DOHC 4.6L. Either way, it's going to cost a lot of money and general know how. Easiest bang per buck, but co$tly, is to throw a supercharger on your SOHC 4.6L.

My Fords:
'98 Crown Vic LX
-167k miles and counting. Still used as daily driver.

'99 Crown Vic Police Interceptor
-Completed full PI swap
-Marauder Airbox & 80mm MAF
-'04 CVPI Ziptube
-ADTR ported plenum
-Steeda Intake Spacer
-BOC tune
-J-Mod tranny

Used 2001+ Vic motors are pretty reasonable. Save your bucks for a motor swap plus replacing the gaskets before you drop it in. Head gaskets leaking oil was an issue, so those should be replaced while the motor is out. A small nitrous shot will give you a nice boost in power without breaking the bank with a blower kit.
