Best Crate Engine for a 1969 Mustang convertible?
I'm about to buy a 69 Vert and will be doing a restomod with her. I figured I would come on here and ask you guys about what type of engine would be the best for my needs.
The car will mostly be used for cruising, and maybe an occasional trip to the drag strip to test her out. Originally I wanted to put a big block in her but after hearing some feedback about how the extra weight will affect handling and how expensive it can be to mod a big block I am thinking of going with a 351W.
So Im debating between a 302, 351W or a stroked motor like a 347 or a 408W or 418W. I really know nothing about strokers so any info you guys could share would be greatly appreciated. What are the pros and cons of each motor? Is there a better choice that I didn't list?
Thanks for any feedback you can give.
