    I sure could use a little help/encouragement, I have recently returned my mustang out of non op status here in lovely Cali. As I did this I have upgraded my ignition and carburetor. I bought a used Holley HP 950 on Ebay. When it arrived I put it on the car and fired it up to take it for a...

    Ok, I know that there are tons of threads on tuning carbs, but I am having some odd issues that I could use some help with. I had the engine tuned and running pretty good, but I put the timing light on it and it showed 42* initial timing and I about pooped myself. Without thinking about it I...

    I have my last parts of my 408 Stroker on the way. I was out hooking all my wiring and plumbing up so that when my intake arrives I can fire this bad boy up. Well, I realized that I no longer have a mounting location for my temp sender. I have the Aussie 3v 208cc cylinder heads atop of a...

    Need help locating a reputable machine shop in the San Diego area. I live in north county but will travel for a good quality shop. I'm turning my 351 into a 408 but don't know where to go for the machining work. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi everyone, I am building a 408 and have the option of a '69 truck block already machined for roller lifters or the '94 roller block. The '94 has a taller deck but the '69 is stronger but has a lower deck. All I want is a reliable and simple 408. With a roller cam. 400-475 HP. No spray or...
