Question Replacement for FORD FE 390 ENGINE (Mustang 1967) - HELP!

Dear all

I have a 1967 Mustang with a 390 V8. The block cracked a cilynder, pouring water into the crankcase and damaging all the main bottom end components, including the crankshaft, rods and pistons.

The Edelbrock Performer RPM heads are in good shape, also the camshaft etc.

I need to buy a complete shortblock kit, can you offer me some opinions with specs please? Or even a full engine?

I need it to be compatible with the heads, and the other 390 parts we already have, like the sump and etcetera

I have a Transmission Tremec TKO500.

The goal is about 450 horsepower or above, with a 150 shot of nitrous on top of that. Mostly street driving, with occasional trackdays (circuit racing).

Thank you very much.

Nice looking car and a nice clean shop you have there.

One good place to start on your FE search would be to contact Barry Rabotnick here:

Barry is well know for specializing in FE motors. He should be able to fix you up with whatever you need.
