    What is the maximum size I can bore this engine out to? Is it possible to bore it to a 302? and If so how much would it cost? I would assume If I wanted to do that going on craigslist and buying a 302 with a T-5, or C-4 Transmission would be cheaper?
  12. SVT Cobra Tech
    I just picked up a 1997 cobra that had a miss. I got the car for next to nothing so I wasnt to worried about it. It is either cylinder 5 or 1 but I ran a compression test and it only has about 10-15psi of pressure. Any ideas of what could cause this? Ive heard a couple things about a valve being...

    I'm considering swaping my 289 out of my 1967 mustang, and puting in a 428, If it will fit. Does anyone know if there is even a possibility of a 428 fitting between my 1967 mustang shock towers.
