Getting close to time to start building the 4.0 for the TR8

Car's done now inside and out so I hope to get to work on tearing the 4.0 donor down for a rebuild in the near future. There will be some challenges along the way as I'm looking to keep FI along with the coil pack arrangement. I'll need to source a 3.9 type plenum if anyone has a decent one laying around for not much moola. Any tips on the build or parts suppliers would be most welcome. Looking to build something in the 200 to 250 hp range with highway cruising in mind but a little punch when I put my foot to the floor.
