408 Stroker parts discussion
#1
My 408C-4V is coming back from the shop soon. I will be receiving all the pieces and assembling it all.
The rotating assembly and internals are coming from TMeyer, which is work in progress as we speak. More information on these to come.
I am not completely decided on some of the peripherals so this thread is to seek opinions.

Edit:
As an idea, the goal of the build is to be a ~475-500 HP engine with factory 4V valves. It will be topped off with a BlueThunder manifold and the FiTech EFI. I am using Hooker Comp headers. All these were in my 351C. The valve train would be hydraulic roller with the camshaft to be decided.

The item I am trying to source right now is the radiator. I am looking at the Champion CC381. Any thoughts, suggestions or recommendations?

I like these made by US radiator in the states.
Champions are nice and shiny and mostly Chinese, they work but their cheaply made in my opinion.

Another item that I am sourcing are the engine mounts. I was looking at the Prothanes. However, even though these are sold for the 351 71-73 Mustang, the description says it doesn't fit the Cleveland engine. Confusing since our cars don't come with the Windsor.

Any thoughts on these or any other good mounts?

I'm pretty much at the same stage with my 406 just waiting on a set of mains then i can assemble the block
I was thinking about a decent radiator so will be interesting what other members come up with however the one you supplied a link looks like it is more than adequate
Be interesting to see what else you do with your build particularly valve train, ignition, intake, headers and of course cylinders heads

I updated my first post with some more general information.

I called pro thane a year ago they said their mounts wouldn't fit. I was tempted to buy them anyway. But ended up using Lakewood mounts. I'll see how they hold up. I'm very close to having it running and at least some test drives till I finish putting the rest together. Did you talk to Tim Meyer about his cam bearings?

As far as I know the engine mounts are the same for Windsor & Cleveland
My coupe originally came with a Windsor 302 but purchased it with a 302 Cleveland aussie in it
Here's some prothane type mounts from CJP - https://www.cjponyparts.com/polyurethane...2/p/MM503/

I am running a Champion radiator right now, and it seems to be working well, my car runs at about 170-180 constantly. Make sure to trim the tabs on the bottom, or it will sit too high. I also tried the urethane engine mounts from summit and they DID NOT work. I might have gotten a bad set, but where they are supposed to clamp over the mount receiver in the car, it would not seat right. The engine was slightly tipped to one side. So I went back to stock mounts.
