Poncho Gurus....discuss ! 400+ build for 66 lemans
Awright my Poncho Brethren, ive read it all on other (un-named )forums and ive read Jim Hand's enlightening book.....Ive got a 66 Lemans and a 1978 400- that needs a .60 overbore. What to do. I cant go overboard (ie., not unlimited funds), but Im thinking stroker kit and e-heads, forged slugs and maybe a moderate dose of nitrous. Ive also got a Turbo 350 and 400 (that will need a new crossmember and some massaging. But this will be a weekend street driver that may see some "test and tune" nights in Memphis. I work 2 miles from home ( 1 - 4 way stop and 1 red light) so no worries with the the daily commute. I just need something that will spank my 93 mustang 5.0 lx, and 69 galaxie ( with a 390). Id really like something that will scare all 5 of the kids and aggravate the neighbors, but will barely avoid a rollcage requirement and not overheat if I get stuck n traffic. Tough call, but would like to build ...... as I have coined the phrase .. something as " NASTY AS A CAJUN OUTHOUSE", (no offense to my close coonass brothers). Thanks for the thoughts!
