Re: exhaust

I have a 2in 250 log, I was under the impression that could be opened to 2.25in.

I really dont like the dual outlet header on a six.

I would like a 2.25 single that goes into a transverse muffler and dual 2in outlets under the valance.

Mid-80s Camaros had the single in / dual out muffler.

Does anyone make a long tube header for a 250 anymore? Anyone hog out a oem manifold to 2.25in? If so, how did it perform?

Re: New Engine

Did some measuring today.

Pistons are .113 down in the hole. With a 6.5cc dish, 53cc head, that gives me right at 9:1 compression.

Im guessing the builder did his math.

Re: 250 build thread for my 65 mustang.

Im dropping a 250 into a 67. I have a set of 69 Mustang 250 mounts with a nice set of isolators.

I believe that a 70 Dart isolator can be modified to work on the 69 Mustang mount as well. There are a couple different 70 Dart mounts, just need to figure out which ones to use.

Couldnt you build the venturi body thickness up with a high temp putty, then bore it to the desired size?

As much as you want to spend.

My head will cost around $400. Thats new everything + larger valves.

Rolling assembly, I dont know yet but Im guessing $400-$500, depending on if I want new rods.
