    Hey everyone, long-time lurker here. I am going to look at a Mustang tomorrow and want to know what you think of the price? I'll obviously inspect the car in detail for rust, structural integrity, etc...but I want to know what the forum thinks the price range is. Below is the link to the...

    Hi all, I've been upgrading my mustang with a rebuilt inline 6 and been thinking about upgrading the rear end on the mustang. I believe it has the stock 2.73 gears in the back which makes acceleration pretty sluggish, so I was wondering what would happen if I added a 8 inch rear end to the car...

    Hi everyone, I've been a long time mustang guy but I was hoping I could get your opinions on the value of a car. I'm looking at 1966 Coupe, Inline 200, 3 speed manual, front disc conversion, new rear drums, 5 lug conversion, a little rust in the trunk pan. I'm specifically looking for an...

    I don't know what price to let the car go for. This is my only car, and I've put a long years worth of work into it. I'm realizing that as much as I love the car, I'm going to need something a little safer and better for long distance driving, as I will be going away to college and sometimes...

    Im looking into getting this little inline 6 200 prepared for a future v8 swap.( its not the original engine that matches car so value loss is not a issue with that) I'm not ready to go forth and do the whole 6 to 8 swap nor is my wallet. Being that my front shocks are in need of replacement...

    If I may start this by saying thank you. During the past year of ownership of my first car, this site was my saving grace when it comes to learning this car. Im a 16 year old junior in high school with college plans and job experience in computer tech. and networking. Cars have ALWAYS been my...

    Hi guys, I am nearing completion of my 1965 Mustang Inline 6 200 coupe resto-mod and it does not have an exhaust system. There is no exhaust manifold or headers on the car now, and my question is which should I put on? Headers or a manifold? Car will be my daily driver so I'm much more...

    I currently have the stock exhaust on my 1966 inline 6 mustang but it is too quiet. I want it to be louder and more throaty. I plan on getting a flowmaster at some point but for now can I straight pipe it? I want to know if it's illegal or not. Thanks

    Got a problem with my 1967 Mustang... Just went through a rebuild with the 200ci Inline 6 engine. Rebuilt the head, new pistons, gaskets, etc. Also installed a power disc brake kit for the front. The car idles well while in park, but the minute you put it in drive the rpms shift lower, and if...

    Well it's an INLINE 6, so this may be wrong category. I didn't see any specific section for these engines. Beside the point, though. I'm considering buying a 1979 Mustang Ghia Coupe for my first car. It's a 3.3L engine. I'm not all too familiar with these engines, but I've read that they have a...

    Hi guys, Just purchased a 1970 coupe. All numbers matching, needs a new exhaust manifold. Wondering if I should put a header on, it is a 250 inline 6 cylinder. Saw from Mustangs Unlimited I could put on one with single or a double exhaust outlet. Currently have single exhaust with standard...

    I'm wanting to do an engine swap on my 1965 coupe. Right now I have a 200ci inline 6 and I'm not satisfied. My mechanic told me that instead of putting a 5.0 in it I should pull a 4.0 302 out of a 90's ford expedition. (If I do so ill be changing it from fuel injected to carbureted.) I know this...

    I have a 1968 mustang with a 302 from a '73 Gran Gorino in it. It was originally an inline 6 200. I thought I had an a/c for the car, but after I got it painted the guy sold it. Not to mention, I just painted it black. So it's going to be a little warm this summer. So if any of you guys have a...

    I recently purchased a 1966 Ford Mustang with the I6 200 CID engine in it. It was rebuilt about 2 years ago. I need to change the oil, and since I'm new to this, I thought I'd check for recommendations on which oil weight to use and if I should include any additives. Any responses are greatly...

    Recently i have been thinking of changing my inline 6 up to a 289. From what i saw it looks like its going to cost me an arm and a leg to do the upgrade, and not to mention a ton of time. Im not looking for a super car, Just something i can beat people from Light to light. I want to know if i...

    One more dumb question. On the driver's side of the block, up high and very near the front is a large hole with two tapped holes on either side, on an angle. Does that make sense? I've looked at many photos online and my guess is there should be a "freeze" plug in the larger hole? Can someone...

    Brand new carb, never had this problem before but now my car wont start after its been on a few minutes. Car wont start when hot. Ive never had the problem before so i dont believe it has anything to do with vapor issues, especially with the new carb. When i look down the barrel and lift the...
