Newb Introduction

My name's Charlie I have an 02 Mustang GT that's due for a big block and it looks like this is the place I need to be. My plan is a 557 with TFS streets or SCJ heads and a C6. It will be street driven every weekend and driven to the track on Friday nights. I'm kicking around the idea of keeping my hydroboost brake/pwr steering and figuring out a way to mount the pump on the motor plate. I pick up my running 460/C6 this weekend and I'm sure I'll have alot of questions as I get further in.

I'm soaking up as much info as I can on here. My first BBF. It's hard to get used to "run of the mill" NA motors making 500+hp. Makes me wonder why I wasted all that money on small blocks and mod motors lol.
