1987 mustang 5.0 gt 302 engine hatchback looking to see which engine I need to purchase with horsepower between 586-625. Want something reliable can someone help me out and put me in the right direction. Also looking at either a Superchargers or turbochargers for my car. Any suggestions I need them

What is the whole setup application?

Nearly nothing "factory stock" in that mustang was designed for that power and torque.

To simply answer your question...
5.0 coyote will get you there.
Moderately setup 363, 408, 427
Or a seriously built 331, 347

All the above will get you there without boost and the trade-off would be reliability in some cases.

Swap the cams, in some cases a dished piston, add boost and they become a different beast.

I don't mean to be rude, but the question appears a bit "newb-ish"...
Maybe expand why you ask the question?
