  1. I believe putting Ram Air on a properly adjusted 2 barrel will increase the efficiency of the smaller carb but will not bring you up to what you can get with a 4 barrel double pumper. The 351 likes fuel and lots of it. If you're wanting economy your better off looking at a Pinto with small 4 banger. When I had my engine built, the intake manifold made it too tall to install the factory Ram-Air so I made my own.
  2. Thanks, I just need it to cool down the drivers seat and be able to recharge it if needed. I drive the car at least weekly and it does get hot here in Calif. I too need to redo the entire system. Mine has not been functioning since I got the car.
  3. Is there a big difference between Stage 1 & Stage 2 systems?
  4. I figured that, is there a big difference between stage 1 & stage 2 systems?
  5. That looks right for original replacement but I think I need to upgrade from the R12 system.
  6. I have a ram air setup, air cleaner and plenum for 71-73 hood with the twin scoop openings. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll send pics of the parts. When I had my engine built the rise on the intake was too tall to work and I didn't want to change manifolds so there ya are. With hind sight I wish I would have but ended up putting a blower scoop up through the hood instead. I know I spent over $600 and will sell it all really cheap, but please do it for personal use and not to resell for more $$$. I just want to pass it on to another 71-73 Mustang lover.
  7. I have a complete ram air setup that I can't use. Air Cleaner and plenum that mounts to hood & uses stock air inlets. I'll take a picture of the parts tomorrow if interested.
  8. Do you know where I can find a functional original. I was looking at Vintage Air but they don't seem to have one for 71-73's I'll call them on Monday. Since there isn't much original on mine I don't mind going with aftermarket chromed or at least polished as long as I can get it to work.
  9. Where can I find an air conditioner compressor that I can get to fit on my 72 Mach 1 with 351C
  10. My hood has that black painted area on it which is a semi-gloss finish and I have a heck of a time getting the water spots off of that area. My car is not a trailer queen, I drive her around town and to local car shows. Now that I have more than a year on the paint job I'm finding keeping that one area nice and free of spots very difficult. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  11. Mine is a 72 Mach 1fastback. I don't know what engine code she was it came from the factory with a 351 2V engine but now she has a 408 stroker motor that produces just under 600 hp. After having the engine built it wouldn't fit under the hood so I put a blower scoop on it and let her breathe from above the hood. When I had her dyno tuned and tested I had to leave the garage. They ran her up to 8000 RPM and I was expecting to see pistons come through the hood but she held together and I drive her around town regularly. There are no trailer queens in my garage.
  12. Tim, Re: Ram Air... Take measurements. If you've changed the intake manifold you probably changed the height of the carb. I changed to an Edlebrock RPM and the Ram Air system won't fit. I think an older Edlebrock Torker will work but Edlebrock doesn't offer that manifold any longer. Fortunately I'll be able to make the Ram-Air (air cleaner portion) work on a 79 Ranchero with a hood scoop and I'm leaving the part that mounts to the hood and adapting a different breathing system to the Mustang. It won't be a true sealed Ram Air system but I will be able to get fresh cool air to the carb. Tim, Re: Ram Air... Take measurements.

  13. Great choice. I'm getting ready to paint mine with the Mopar 1970 Sublime paint.
