Response to Yep all of em', I need better friends. lol

His car is a junked out Fairlane with lots of missing parts.

He wants to build a lightweight 427 clone.

My advice to him to have a cheap, but well running engine was to use a 390FE engine [as it will pretty much look the same as a 427fe to most people].

Buy a entry level stroker kit, some out of the box Edelbrock heads, Edelbrock intake, a good used roller hyd cam, and new lifters.

Then buy a new Quick Fuel 750 carb, mated to a BB Toploader [he has two of those].

Try to find a used steel bell, with a decent clutch/pp, and have fun.

A decent running, well built 390fe will beat a 427fe with a slung rod/cracked cylinder, every time.
