Building it up

Hey guys, I just found this site, looks like a wealth of knowlege. I've got a 68' mustang coupe that I drive regularly, but shortly I hope to be building up a 351C 2V for my next car, a 69 sports roof, and I'll break the motor in by putting it into the coupe.

I've attached an word file with the goodies that I'm wanting to add. These are probably all Effed up from where they should be...but what I'm looking for is: a pretty high end street machine....I'm pretty much looking for something thats the next step up from where my 289 is (in performance parts that is)

so thats why i *tried* :\ to keep the powerband(s) as low as i could. Millage is NOT an issue here, but driveability should be considered.

Like i said, look at this like a 2yr. olds try at a Picasso!

down below are the summit numbers for those who might not have word


****the only two items i am not sure on are the valve springs and the crank. I would like to stroke this guy out, and I figured I would need stiffer valve springs with all of the good stuff i want to add.

think of this like a guideline to the general idea that I'm going for..... I guess I'm asking for your guys opinions on this...



thanks especially for you patience!

-John

As far as valve springs, use ONLY the exact springs recommended by the cam grinder for the EXACT cam you're gonna use.

The power is in the heads and I'll yield to the blue oval guys on here to hash that out with you. As a general rule, 9.0:1 makes a nice motor if you use iron heads, 10.0:1 if you use aluminum. Then it's just a matter of calling up your favorite cam grinder, giving him all the specs of your motor and what you expect it to do for you and the grinder will dial right in on the correct cam for you.

how about the other parts?

what's your guy's opinion on the carb/intake? I guess there's always the big holley/eddelbrock debate, but thats something else.....but I've really only had experience with the RPM performer intake, and I was looking for a little different venue out there on this one. what do some of you guys prefer?
