ALL THE THINGS
- I picked up a 1978 200 a while ago, for no other purpose other than I was bored and needed a road-trip to New Jersey.
- The head has been cleaned and no cracks found. It is sitting on a shelf, partially pocket ported ... (for sale soon)
- The block has not been inspected yet. It is sitting on an engine stand. Assume it's good and can be bored.
- Also assume it's going in my 65 Mustang Coupe. My HP goal is... about 400ish
- Reply with your suggestions/ideas on the Carb/EFI, Ignition, Pistons, Cam, AL Head?, Tranny, Reardiff, Exhaust, Turbo???
- Upvote the replies you like, downvote the ones you don't (up/down arrows on the right of the replies).
- Let's have some fun with this!
