    So I have a 2012 v6 and I know pro charging would get me to 4something depends on how much money I put in it so I'm deciding on engine swamping it I have 2 in mind but any advice would help ? Or its either I buy a v8 and go all out on that ? Something around the 2000's

    Procharge it and be happy with your 475 (crank) horsepower :)

    I don't have a ProCharger. I can't decide, my tires (255/45-18) can't handle what I have now. The ProCharger kit made for our v6's will run safely on a 100% stock motor.

    I can only tell you my results with the 3.7L V6 that I put into my Falcon. The engine was stock except for a cold air intake. I had it dynoed in Reno Nevada at elevation of ~5000 ft. and it put out 258 rear wheel horsepower.With the lighter weight of the Falcon, acceleration is quite crisp and my best mileage with premium fuel is 35.7 MPG. This engine responds quite well with but minor mods.
