Six

You could make the 200 run pretty good with some basics...intake, dual carbs and headers. If you had some head work done and a light cam it could be a little sleeper.

Here's an example...follow this link http://falconperformance.sundog.net/gallery.asp


This is Phil Clements warmed up 200. It has a Clifford dual outlet header, CompCams 260 bumpstick, DuraSpark II conversion, Jacob's Ultra Coil and 8.5mm wires, topped with a Holley-Weber 5200 on a Clifford adapter.

how exactly do you set up duel carbs? ive seen it done quite a bit but i never really took the time to understand how it worked?

also what would a good carb be? ive still got the stock single chamber on mine...

any suggestions as products that would work good? or even places to check? ive had a difficult time finding parts for my motor which was my original reasoning behind changing it

That 6 cyl is good for at least 200HP, and you won't blow it apart. I would go for upgrading the 6, becasue it can give you better low end torque than a v-8, being an inline. Try Dallas Mustangs for parts, they are in Dalla Texas.

You might try the link fordsix.com

I had dual carbs on my truck, but it wsa 230 Chevy six cylinder. It just incolves a dual carb intake (bolt on) and the correct linkage. It is best to match the cam, carb and all together rather than piecmilling it.

I'll send you pics of my six with the dual carbs and also with one 390 Holley four barrel if you want.

They're online, we buy parts for our 95 GT there al the time. Great quality.

There catalog is easier to follow. They'llsend you one, and then look up your parts online after looking thru the catalog.

The '66 up 200 is a rock solid motor, 7 bolt mains and 2 bolts per cap, the problem with the small six, is that it does not breathe well. There is an issue with putting on a intake manifold, that is it has a integral mounted intake manifold ( cast right on head ) so cutting and welding would be nessary, not just a bolt on, but running the Holley/ webber 5200 off a clifford adaptor will work nice but suffer, another option ( though pricey ) is to get an OZ 250 2v head ( which is the aussie version of the 200-250 I6 head, bolts on, removable intake, everything is bolt up ) there are places that sell them on Ebay, or Fordsix is going to be releasing a aluminum head for the motor. a light cam, the OZ head and a set of dual outlet headders ( FSPP has really good prices on them ) and it would be pretty quick, hook up a granada -monarch 4spd ( cheap version of toploader ) and you would have a pretty quick car, and with a set of chambered mufflers, would sound almost like a V8

visit www.tffn.net for other options and also www.fordsix.com

If you have no experience with multi carb setups I would steer you clear on doing it. A 500cfm Holley 2 barrel carb would be plenty on a 200 six. The next best thing you can do for your 200 is to put on a header and run dual exhaust. I would then convert it to electronic ignition off of a mid to late 70's 250 inline six so it has plenty of spark. If you really want to add some Hp and Tq, find a 170 head, install 250 valves, bowl blend it and bolt yourself a 500 cfm Holley on top of it and let it rip.

The pertonix ignititor kits do the same thing as the duraspark II electronics, but is easier and cheaper.
