I originally bought mine with the intention of putting in an aluminum Ford Racing blocked 302.

After all the hazing I got from you guys here, I decided to stick with the six.

Like I always have said -the man makes the car, the car doesn't make the man.

If I had the time, I could get 500+hp -if I still had access to the machine shop in Topeka.

Don't have the time, don't live in Topeka, and the shop closed -but I can get 400hp easy out of the six. It's got Cleveland-like heads, a pretty trick intake, and it's detuned. It's making almost as much power as my old 302 made out of the factory.

I'm comfortable with it, so I decided to keep it just to poke my thumb in the eyes of the GTers -Just Like I built the Mustang to poke my thumb into the eyes of the Chevy Monkeys.

A good builder can make anything fast.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
