73 351CJ "Q" CODE ENGINE BUILD
#1
Wrench 

1973 TORINO 351 4bbl "Q" CODE 4-BOLT ENGINE (4-spped car 3;25 gears)
Goal: Lots of tire burning torque, street-able, sound good run great
Problem: MUST retain all outward components! valve covers,intake,carburetor ,heads,exhaust manifolds,A/C, Power Steering, look like factory fresh!
MUST look 100% Stock on the outside!

I can change cam, pistons,rods,crank,valves,springs,rockers, to a 408 or 434 cubic inch motor must have a 4.030" max oversize bore, a compression ratio of no more than 10:1 ratio.

One hot stock looking Stang!

Suggestions of know usage helpful. 63 years old done a lot of cars.IdeaIdeaCool

Be riding dirty right there.


Sounds like a mean scorcher of a build, with a nice bit of comfort to boot. AC an all.

How original are you looking being most heads painted Ford Blue are gonna look the same? It should have 2V heads if it is stock, 4V heads can make that engine breath. Its gonna want some air and lots of it stroked out like that.

My bad early morning getting my info boondoggled I should have specified better the early model 4V heads are not the same as the later model 4V heads. Not all of the 4V heads are equal and the 73-74 were the lowest performing stock 4V heads.
