Next big question is junkyard block or brand new from Ford?

if you arent going for stupid high hp numbers (800+) i would just get a junkyard block, you usually have to machine the new blocks too so you dont save much money in machine work by going new, if you were going 302 baised id say definately get a new boss block from ford, since the stocker cant hold much power, but the 351w blocks are fine

unless you are going to spend the money to do it right with a really nice set of heads /rotating assembly / cam etc it is not worth the additional effort / $ / weight

if you just want the bragging rights of having a huge engine, my two cents says the modular 6.8 V10. screw saying you have a large displacement, you have a V10.

I'm looking at doing a 351-based stroker (393 or 408) myself. But I dont know if his was a stroker or not.
This Rotrex blower setup is pretty cool and fun on the Cobra and all, but I kinda think it'd be more fun with lots of inches and compression. Then maybe the Oinker could get this one-off blower setup along with a Dart block since its a much better car to look at than the red one. hahhaa

hey, he said that he wanted braging rights. well, even though it may not be as fast, which apparently isn't as important to him as evidenced earlier in this thread, a V10 SN95 would definately have some bragging rights.

Know why?

Because unlike yours mine is INFORMED.




BTW, just a little advice... its a tight knit group of long time posters in this area of MW. And besides pushrod motors, the one thing we have in common is that we dont do much other than troll the lounge and other rooms.

cloud just to hit a few points... your check engine light goin on and off does not mean your motor is in need or replacement... its more likely a emissions device not working that you would be getting rid of when you swap to a 351 and then that light would be on all the time... also you say money is not a problem but i think you should sit down a price it all out before you dive into it cause if you need this as a dd and you run out of cash your goin to end up with a unreliable car to drive around. a 351 swap with nice parts can end up costing a good amount. also if you get a junk yard motor out of a truck or van and keep the stock heads, intake and cam its goin to be a weak motor.

stock computer will work with a tune, no big deal there.

it should be noted also that it is ALWAYS way more than you think, if you think it will be 5 grand, budget for about 8.. and thank me later

There is always something that you did not expect.

i think what i should have said, is if you think it will be 5, budget for 8, so you arnt as mad when its 11

yeah, i am in that boat too. as far as HP, a mild cammed 351-408 can make 500HP pretty easy. good flowing heads, good compression, bingo.

just don't expect to use ANYTHING other then the block. sell the heads, intake, cam, etc.....

AND if/when you do this drop 1k on a DD jap car. other wise you will be losing your job/home, selling perform parts for bus fare.

Love the drama here

The light hasn't come on for a few days, so it was probably a misfire or something like that. So the light will stay on anyway? What if I keep the EGR system hooked up? It's been a while since I was in Autos class, but I thought EGR was mainly to stop engine from overheating? How much HP could it rob? What I plan on doing is putting more small stuff on it this winter, then next buying a DD and by then I will have started building up the motor- AFRs seem to be the head of choice, then what cam and intake?
