Default 1966 Mustang 200 inline 6 engine upgrade kit

I have a 1966 with a 200 inline 6, and I heard that ford had an engine upgrade parts kit, that you could add to the inline 6 to boost it up close to the V8. Does anyone know what its called or how I could find it??

Upgrading a 200 to a 289 or 302? That's a 45% or 51% increase in cubic inches. You're either gonna have to bore and stroke the hell out of it or find a way to bolt 2 more cylinders onto it.

thanks for the reply, but maybe I should clarify, I think this ford parts kit boosts the horsepower and maybe the look of the engine, but not the cubic inches.

Don't know of any kit that Ford puts out for the L6 but take a look over at classicinline.com. Lot of info and parts for the 6's .

There are some things you can do to "hop up that six." I'd first recommend purchasing this book. It's relatively cheap and it outlines all your options.

Classic Inlines Performance Parts - Product Detail

I'd also check out this forum that's devoted to the Ford 6. There are a lot of folks there that have already done what you want to do and they don't mind sharing what they know.

Ford Six Performance: The Web's Leading Resource for Ford Inline Six-Cylinder Engines and Cars!

Good luck!

Hey Ray, where did you hear about that? I'm a sixer myself, it sounds convincing enough that Ford might do that. If you find anything put up a post. I might take a look around too.

The only "kit" I know of is this one from Cliffords: Clifford Performance: 43-0200 Ford 200 Super Rebuild Kit
However, components can be bought cheaper and from a more reliable vendor.
