Well my dad built his high reving stock stroke 351C the thing is a animial on the track... not street friendly 12.1 compression.. in a gutted and caged 67 mustang with a c4.. footbraking it hits 10.80s passes... hes thinking he can get it to 10.60s
my 408C build went ok...ran awesome!! but long story short.. got a offer i couldnt refuse from a longtime friend...so i actually made money on my build..
NOW i know it seems silly to some but im working on a 68 fastbakc mustang... to be a daily driver...all but winter.. (thats what the beater f250 is for haha) I just want to make sure im on the right track as far as a 351c that will still make power but i can go out turn the key and have a nice 650-800 rpm idle... the 68 has all new suspension.. (roller perches, uca,lca, 560 springs, etc etc) so its going to handle well.. it has 4.10 gears... and a t5z should handle abotu 425hp and 400 torque. so im thinking a decent 351c is great... here is a list of what i have right now to get this done!
im thinking roughly 10.1 compression
4v cc heads (already have good valves no porting)(have)
f238 cam? (how do they idle??) (if not a good idle what is a good street grind for 4v heads)
stock rod arp bolts (have)
stock crank (have)
deep pan with good pump
torker intake with clover 1" spacer (have)
just need a cam,pitsons,and oil pan...
goal is a 12 second daily driver 68 mustang...has a t5z... 4.11 gears 9" rear.. stock body, stock interior..
any opinons are appreicated on a good street 4v build...
