Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

I would definitely go with the 351W. It will fit.
We all know that BOOST is the only real replacement for displacement.
:P

Turbo + V8 = hell of a lot more power then you'll get stroking it.

Just do the normal basic mods, and stick a snail on the exhaust...

Check out some of the mustang forums, you can get into the high 12'* with pretty much nothing but bolt on'*, and still keep decent fuel economy. But if you want to go all out, I don't know much about stroking the fords, but there are people all over the place doing it. You can have just about any displacement number you want. One of the mags in my library (aka bathroom) has a windsor stroked to a 383...sound familiar? Either way, you're two steps ahead of us with a 5 speed and RWD!!!!

Yeah...I'm a member of mustangforums.com

I was thinking about originally just buying the trick flow top end kit to get into the high 12s, but more cubes are calling!

In that case, a stroked 460 with an aluminum block and heads, forged internals, low compression with a procharger and . Instant fun and destruction of all drivetrain parts!!

But seriously, a 351W can make 400 hp pretty easily, that might be the way to go.

I agree.....and remember that the reduced weight of the small block will really pay off.....more like 500 hp if you build it right.

A tree fiddy one W can handle up to 700hp...though thatd be nuts. 400 would be adquate

<3 the 4 bolt mains. A 302 attempts to become two four cylinders under your hood at 500whp.

Went to the junkyard today and found this...

Name:  Picture008.jpg
Views: 0
Size:  43.3 KB

It'* a 1990 351w...non roller block, though. Flat tappet. Still debating whether I want to waste my time and money no a flat tappet block, though I hear they can put out a lot of power too. It'* in an F250 so I'd have to pull it myself.

Opinions?

Put roller lifters and a roller cam in it and call it good.
