Re: 250 Build in 67 Mustang

I would go with zero deck and .044 Victor gasket and if you have to mill your head later use the FelPro .050 gasket. Or at least that's my plan with 200.

Re: "180" degree crank SIX CYLINDER hi-torque engine

I think you should not change firing order in inline six. It’s already in good balance, compared to 4 or 8 cyl engines. Those 180 deg V8 engines are like two inline 4 engines, and yes they scream nicely but so does inline 6.
