I was curious if you ever built your "mixed Ford" I've been trying to figure out how to stuff 408 ci into my '65 Mustang using only stock or modified Ford parts. The 400 won't fit and it's too heavy. It seems that it you started with a 351w, the original 289 pistons on the 351's rods and a modified 400 crank it . The pistons would need to lose .040 height or you could use a head shim with a .060 gasket. I can have the crank's snout turned to match the Windsor's and clear the block myself but what I'm not sure of is how much I would have to take of the crank to clear the pistons, cam and anything else. I know the rod ratio isn't much better than a chevy 400 but I can settle for that.

No,too many irons in the fire,story of my life,still waiting to win the lotto. But,I did get to ride in a Couger with the same idea,this kids uncle built the thing so I havent got the exact formula for the build yet,hes 16 but pretty sharp for his age, what he did know is it was a newer roller 351 block,92 f150 he thinks,400 m crank,said he thought he used 8 300 6cyl rods with polished beams and better bolts,mystery flat tops"still trying to find out"closed chamber 351c 4v heads with over length valves and springs w roller rockers,ford x303 cam,an open intake that reminded me of a torker 2,custom headers that he made a point of saying cost a small fourtune,holley 750,unilite dist,and a msd box with a 6000 chip. I gotta say,It realy does get it on,a bit to much for a first car in my opinion,I would guess 13s or so. He said he will get more info for me, and when he does I will update you, from what I saw It was an awsome setup,very strong after about 2700/2800,but it didnt sound like a cheap date.
