Back in '86 that was a bass-ass number. Remember that the '78 TA with 400ci was rated at 178hp or something horrible like that.

He's referring to the cylinder head (E6 casting) and true flat top pistons which allow less room for aftermarket heads/ cam upgrade, I think they may have been cast as well, not sure.

Forged flat top pistons.My '88 T-Bird has an '86 'Stang engine.I installed an Explorer intake,new exhaust and headers,and she will MOVE.I'd rather have valve reliefs for new heads,but,still quick.
