Default Crate engine for a 1966 mustang

My 1966 6 cylinder mustang is almost ready for a new engine.

I have upgraded the brakes, suspension, wheels, tires, added posi traction and 8 inch rear.

I am looking around for a good engine and found this:

M-6007-X302 MUSTANG FORD RACING CRATE ENGINE 306 CUBIC INCH 340HP


Has any one used it? I would like to go with a 351, but cant find a good deal on one. The above ford racing 306 is a nice looking motor that might look better then an old used 351. With 340 horses it should be good enough for now.

I was at one of our local car show about 3 weeks ago and there was a 67 mustang coupe with that motor and it sure looked sweet in that engine bay. The owner said he paid close to $3,500.00 for it from Ford Racing so the price at CJ Pony Parts is even better. It come with a warranty. I would strongly consider it if it was my 66 stang.

PS I'm sure that you will have to change to a oil pan and maybe the pump for one that works on the 66 stang.

I know a lot of people who used that engine. It gets excellent reviews for performance. Excellent price, and a warrenty! Hard to go wrong with that one.

Pay attention to the oil pan and water pump. Don't want to get the wrong one.

What kind of warranty on that 302? Looks like a good solid platform to build upon. Consider a good dual plane intake - air gap preferably, some headers, a good 600-650 CFM carb and an MSD or Pertronix set up and you are good to go. I paid about twice that but got a great turn-key, dyno-tuned 347 with all new parts and a completely forged bottom end from Smeding Performance. And a 3 year warranty. Puts a great big smile on my face every time I drive it.

Good luck with your project and let us know how it turns out.

Smedding makes quality engines. So does Fordstrokers. I have a Fordstroker 347 in my 1970 now - very happy with it. But plan on going with the FordRacing in my 66 vert when time comes. Good price and enough HP for the 66.
