Well..here is the good , the bad , and the ugly....
I wound up going with a Comp 282 hyd. roller cam, Comp hyd. roller lifters, PRW stainless adj. roller rockers, CJ iron heads, and a 4.25 Scat crank.
I used an original Ford low riser dual quad intake, 2-600 Holley's, and an oval dual quad air cleaner.
I had "Carburetor" Joe Bunitec set up my intake and I bought two 600 Holley carbs from him. He did a great job cleaning the intake and setting up the carbs for me. This is the initial start up of the engine.


After the start up, I was noticing fuel leaking out on to the intake, in fact every time I ran the car there was fuel sitting on the intake. The fuel was leaking from the carbs but we couldn't figure out where?
Long story short, the fuel eventually washed out cylinder 4 and 8. Upon tearing down the engine, we noticed that the oil had metal in it ! Come to find out that around the exhaust ports on the aluminum intake looked like someone took and ice pick and started stabbing the ports, the aluminum intake was just flaking away !
So my machinist bored another .005 off the cylinders so now we are at .045 over.
So two years later, my engine seemed to run fairly strong but not like I wanted so I took the car to a shop and had a Mustang Dyno evaluation done. The engine was right at 472 HP at the flywheel. The shop I took the car to put a wideband airfuel sensor on and dialed in the carbs a little better.
Then as one of the shop workers was pulling my car back into their shop after a test run, the brakes failed and the car ran into a set of heavy steel doors knocking one of the doors off onto the hood of the Galaxie. That ruined the bumper, hood, messed up the fender, and ruined the grille.
We wound up re-painting the whole car because the first re- paint job was terrible. My first painter had a high school kid take the paint off with a roller sander and ruined a lot of the body lines....ugh.
We added a Crites tear-drop hood, new bumpers, etc.
While in the shop, the mechanics at V8 found that my flywheel had a loose bolt on it.... somewhere along the line I came up with a helicoil in my flywheel ! Now I had installed that flywheel brand new from Summit, how did a heli coil get in the flywheel ???? Hmmm?

here is the link to the job that V8 Speed and Resto did on my Galaxie.

About a year and a half ago I had Blair Patrick set up a pair of BBM aluminum heads for me and that really woke the engine up, I also added a med. riser dual quad intake and got rid of the FlexLite fan and went with a Derale electric fan... The 428 breathes now and runs strong !
It was a real learning experience !
