So I finally got the engine (2003 4.6) back from the machine shop. I had the shop do the following;
Bore 20 over
Install TFS stage 2 cams
Install the MMR head rebuild kit and new valves
Clean and polish the crank
Balance the crank (with the forged pistons and rods)
Deck the block
Line honed the mains

I have a question for you guys. Is it worth putting the high volume oil pump in while I have it apart?
I have heard about pickup tube to crank interference issues.

No. There is no true "high volume" pumps for these cars. Manufacturers love using that pretense. The only true oil pump upgrade is having billit gears. You wont be make nearly enough power to warrant billit gears

Thanks for the insight. This is my first mustang build, and my first real project car, so I will probably have a lot of slightly dumb questions.
