Mustang Monthly Rebuilding a 200 with VI Head

Post #1 by rocklord » Thu Dec 27, 2018 10:52 pm

Just got my January 2019 issue of Mustang Monthly and they are doing a series on rebuilding a 200 I-6
(even though the front cover states they are rebuilding a 250 I-6). I think the Mustang community
would raise a stink if they were rebuilding a 302 and calling it a 351 on the front cover.

The January article, Part 1, is discussing building a short-block.
Part 2 will discuss camshafts, cylinder head (Vintage Inlines Alloy head), and other parts.
Part 3 will dyno the engine.

They also have plans to design and build a sequential EFI system with new parts.
Of course, if an EFI vendor lets them test (read - gives them) their system, they will be happy to.
I'm thinking FiTech, or Holley Sniper, but you never know.

That's great news! Very interested to see what they'll do in the upcoming issues.

Just got the February issue. Part 2 is about the VI head, nothing new about it for anyone on this forum.

Part 3 will be a dyno test. They are still talking about making a sequential EFI system for the engine, that will be interesting.
