The stoker kit for my FE 390 came in earlier this week. It should punch out to around 433 ci so I thought I'd check and see if anyone had one, its a kit from Scat, and all I could find were based on Windsors or the 460 platform. I already know that I am odd but am I the only one using the FE platform?

Odd...not in my book! That's a nice looking Galaxie! james67 on vintage-mustang.com is building a 416 FE in a '67 GTA mustang. I believe it is a 390 with a 428 crank. Where did you buy your stroker kit?

Thanks. Your Stang looks mean! I love the old fastbacks. Don't see many around here though. I need to take a new picture that is a little cleaner digitally...like yours. The stroker kit came directly from Scat Crankshafts. I believe the 416 is the smallest kit they have then it goes to around 433 and the big boy goes up over 450 ci. My Galaxie is pretty heavy so I went bigger than the 428 crank. Need the torque to get her moving. The nitrous helps but I usually don't juice the 390 until she's moving.

482 inches. The last motor in my cougar was a 427 top oiler block bored .017" over to 4.25" with a 4.25" Scat stroker crank, 6.7 inch scat rods and ross pistons. With ported edelbrock heads and a mild roller it made 604 ft lbs of torque and 585 HP using an RPM intake.

Heres the folks you need to talk to...

I can't remember much of details. They changed so much since we orderd them in December...and they finally showed up Saturday. I know we will be running Edelbrock heads, Thunder series 800 cfm carb, Performer - RPM manifold, and FPA headers. Using a Comp cam with 230 duration but I can't remember the rest. The machine shop doing the work has thrown so many numbers and options at me that I finally told him to do whatever he felt would fit the way I drive.

Ujt389: Thanks for the compliment. The car is running 16" Torque Thrust II's instead of the 15" Phat Fives in the picture.

As you can probably tell...I don't know a whole lot about motors. Just enough to get myself in to trouble.
