200 ci engine upgrade 1966 Mustang

hi, im a new mustang owner i have a 1966 mustang that has a 200 ci engine i would like to keep it as it came but it just seems to be way to slow l. are there any upgrades that i can do to the six banger to pep it up a little . other than putting in a v-8. im a fan of the small block but would like to do something a little different.(stand out from the crowd)would like to have any input.the engine was rebuilt 2 months before i got it from the guy.which is another story that i will tell you later,great deals do still happen.

Loads of space in that bay - go turbo or procharger. Done properly, should blow the doors off most small blocks...........

open up the exhaust cherry bomb turbo muffler ?. electric fan or clutch. bump up the timing as far as u can maybe a elec. dist or petronix. elec. fuel pump.- autolite plugs-ram air hose to the carb. breather.. any weight you can take off the car.undedrive pulleys or lose ac. or ps. ihave a200 in a 80 mdl with these mods. it goes as fast as a lot of v8s i've owned..

The motor will respond to all the traditional hop ups, headers, cam, intake, carb, etc. There are plenty of dress up parts as well to make it look good too. Clifford has already been mentioned, there are other companies as well just spend a little time Goggling it and you should turn up more than a few.

Angliagasser, that's exactly what I've been thinking of for my '66! Yours is the first I'v ever seen.

What are using for a trans. I was thinking of a T5.

NIIIIIICE!!!!!!!!!!!! But lately I have been thinking about doing something completely and RELLY diffrent, I have been thinking about dropping an inline 6 nissian skyline engine into it it seems simple enough! I kno alot of people will not be too enthused with this but I think it would be awsome and extremely out of the ordinary

That was done in Tokyo Drift. Took about a month to get it to fit right, and they had to ditch one of the turbos. There's an article about it in Hot Rod

I found one guy who did it and it took a little modifying but for themost part he says it was fairly easy, the 2nd turbo can me modified to fit but there is alot more research to be done! The biggest problem is that it was ment to fit in a car with the stearing all on the right side sooooo we'll see what i can do ill keep you guys posted

the stock autolite 1100 carb flows about 185 cfm. youll most likely want to get a larger 1barrel or a 2 barrel for it. you can get an adapter from clifford or classicinlines.com. the autolite also has a scv that really only works with the stock dist., and you wont get very much advance with a different carb. that distributor sucks anyways so i suggest you upgrade with a duraspark 2. go to your parts store and order the distributor from a 78 fairmont. also order the cap and rotor, and (if you want) get the module from a 70's camaro. the gm hei module is smaller, easier to install, cheaper, and is supposed to perform better than the stock duraspark module.

i just finished my DS2 conversion using a gm module and its really easy.

headers are a very good idea, but you could just get a turbo muffler and the system for a 68 mustang with a 200 if you want to keep it stock appearing.

You know you're in the USA when your blower has a blower.

I LOVE the tri-power on sixes. Very European, very cool.

Us Americans don't really realize how successful I6 cars the world over have been. Jaguar, Nissan, etc. We're spoiled with our V8s.

PS: That 2.3L turbo is freaking sweet. If I didn't have a 289 already, I would totally do that. Way to go, man.
