You sure it's an inline 6? The 200 cid inline does have an integral intake, IIRC. But I'm thinking the Mustang had a V6 that year.

200 I6's were used in '80 Mustangs..

4bbl carb is way overkill for a stock 200 6, and even a little much for a mod'd engine..

take the head off, and have a machine shop mill the intake flat, and mill .045 off of the head surface, create an adaptor that will fit a Holley 2300 2bbl. you can use an aluminum carb spacer and mod it to work... while the head is off, pull the valves and clean up the ports under the valves.. you will need washers for the head bolts that will take up the .045 removed from the head.. get a set of 1.6 RHS adjustable Rockers ( $250 IIRC ). that will make the cam a little hotter. you can also get an aftermarket timing chain and install it straight up.. from the factory, they were retarded 2*..

run, a 500 CFM holley 2300, and that will wake it up pretty good..
