351w

  1. Classic Tech
    I bought a used 87 mustang with a carbureted 351w about a year ago, haven't been able to work on it for a while. I have finally been getting into it and am having a misfire issue with cylinder 1. I am not sure where the block came from but it is rebuilt with hypereutectic pistons, an unknown...

    Well, the 302 just blew in my '70 mustang while the 351w was in the machine shop, so this build was meant to be. I have a 1969 351w (9.480 deck height) and had a heck of a time finding a kit that would work, and I think I managed to find one: 12360-PS-F408W - Ford 408W Reverse Dome -22.0cc...

    Hello All, I am in my last semester of college and have sort of gotten a little senioritis. Decided to use some of my GI bill money from my time in the military to do some work on my Mustang. It is a 2004 V6 Red Convertible. Came across a 1969 351w with a Shelby intake I got a pretty good deal...

    Hello collective wisdom: I need some advice. I have a 66 coupe with a 351w shoved into it. Runs great, love it. The front end needs some help. I know a number of you out there have the same or similar set up. What kind of springs and shocks are you happy with? Thanks.

    Hey all, Looking to get a set of headers for my 351w in a 65 mustang. Theres a set of swap mid length headers out there by Hedman that I want. I have read that long tube headers give better mid to high rpm performance and the mid lengths give better low end to mid range power (I spend more...

    Hey all, So I've got a 351w thats basically stock (I think the cam is slightly bigger than stock but I could be wrong so lets assume its stock) except for a Edelbrock 650cfm carb and Edelbrock intake. I'm now trying to move up to heads and I'm looking at the E street heads (not going to be a...

    I'm getting ready to buy a 351w to build into 400hp. My original plan was to go to a junkyard or pull-a-part and yank one out of a 94-97 truck and rebuild that but I found this craigslist listing of a 351w roller cam block that's totally clean and has a fresh .030 bore and comes with new cam...

    Hey all, What would you estimate that I would gain by installing Edelbrock E-Street Heads (1.90" intake) and an XE268H cam. Engine is a 351w with a performer intake and a 600cfm carb and hooker headers. Thanks.

    Hey all, Is a 600cfm performer carb too small a carb for Edelbrock Performer heads for a 351w? Thanks.

    Hey all, I am considering/really wanting to swap out the old manifolds for some headers. I know longtubes are better, but I'll be fine with the mid length Hedman swap headers for a 65 mustang with a 351w. Has anyone had experience with those headers in this application? Do they fit well...

    Hey all, I was wondering if someone here could give me a reasonable estimate on what a 351w with a performer intake, 600cfm carb, Comp XE268h cam, Hedman mid length headers, full dual exhaust, electronic ignition but stock heads (soon to go) would be putting down? Thanks.

    Hey all, I was wondering if I could get any insight on a realistic gain from a new cam in a 351w. The engine has a performer intake and 600cfm carb. I have been looking at either the XE250H or the XE262H. The car is a weekend driver and never sees track time, only street. Thanks, Adam

    Hey all, Looking for a set of headers that WILL fit a 65 mustang with a 351w in it. Is there anything else I would need to get to get them to fit?...I've heard some talk about 66 motor mounts and such... Thanks.

    Hey all, Looking for a new cam, and I know it depends on the torque converter and rear end etc, but what would be an ideal cam for a 351w for the street that provides good drivability? Thanks, Adam

    Hey all, My car stalled on me the other day after driving for just a few miles. The car was very hard to start after that and out of the countless times that I tried to start it, it only started once. Now, I have heard that the carb needs choke adjustment perhaps, any word on this? The car...

    Hey all, I'm looking to install a 1" front sway bar on my 65 mustang. I was wondering about any clearance issues since my car has a 351w in it. Thanks.
