if you guys were to build a 408 stroker windsor in a 69 mach1 with automatic trans and is mainly street driven how would you build it with some strip.

Here's what I'm doing ...........

Goal is,
1 )to drive it everyday if need be.
2 )Run on 93 octane
3 )Push my Richmond 5 speed equiped 83 GT to 130+ 1/4 mile trap speeds

Lots of thinking and suggestions has gone into this combination. I've spoken to almost all the fast guys out there(Probe,Bennett Racing, PanHandle, Kooks Headers) about what to and what NOT to run. Here's how mine is shaping up. I've been promised 600+ HP on the dyno with this setup, all under 7000 RPM's.

Here's the combo

1974- 351W block
Eagle Crank & Rod & JE Piston Kit
Trickflow "R" Heads
Super Victor Intake
Lunati Steel Roller(248/[email protected]) & Lifters
Crane Gold Rockers
Melling HV Oil Pump
Canton Oil Pan
Kooks 1 7/8 Headers
Holley #9380 - 850 w/Annular Discharge
3.73 gear for my Ford 9" rearend
plus a few other odds and ends .......

The total is a touch over $6200.00.... A little expensive ..... But I should have a spectacular setup that should be
THE LAST ENGINE I WILL EVER NEED!

to all of you guys that have forgotten more than the little that I know--tell me--how can pony 1 come close to 600 hp with that set up? I hope he does because I'm building a similar one, although it dynoed at 430. I'm not arguing with you pony 1, just wondering. Oh yeah, don't forget to answer strokerman's original question!

thanks guys my engine is pretty good now but i think my engine builder was thinking small my cam is 536 lift on both in. ex. 218 228 at .050 world sr heads cast iron cncd stealth 750 speed demon vs. 1\3\4 hookers which is fine changing trans from fmx to c-4 have 11''2500 stall now shift kit which isnt s---! looking to go low 12s high 11s is that close the car is fast really comes on around 3000 to 5000 the engine is pretty new less than 5000 miles. thinking of bigger cam with 232 242 and 544 560 lift lunati roller which is in now but smaller. hood i can cut out opening or cowl hood if it makes a differance in hp i'll do it . i want to make this engine run to its full power without running like a pro stocker, i wish. anyway any ideas, is it fine the way it is should i leave it alone and just change trans for now maybe eletric fan pulleys i'' spacer or just run a shot of n20. also running 3.50 posi with 28 tall tires 275-60 -15 in back thanks

I hope Pony1 is right,cause that is the neighborhood I am shooting for from my 427 stroker. If Probe will ever send me the pistons,I have about had it with those people.
