    My 13 year old wants to build a 1971-73 Mach 1 Mustang for his first car. We have found a Grabber Blue with white interior base model 1971 Mach 1 to start on.

  1. I received the push rods yesterday. So, this afternoon I will set the valves and install the intake.
  2. Well finally got the D0AE-N quench heads back from the machine shop. They freshened them up, checked all critical areas and changed valve springs. I ordered an intake, and headers. I decided to go with the Performer RPM since I could not find anyone with an available Blue Thunder. I went with the Doug's D6714 with 1.750" primary tubes and 3" collector.
  3. delawarebill, I will check into Champion radiators, thanks. The stock shroud will work on these?
  4. 73pony, I wish my car had the original radiator to use. Unfortunately that is not the case.
  5. Greetings once again, I am in the process of gathering needed parts for my son's 1973 Q code Mach 1 build. What is the best direct fit factory style radiator and shroud to buy? I want the car to stay cool on 100 degree south Mississippi days. Probably the bigger the better. I will probably do the clutch fan upgrade that Hemikiller suggested in an earlier post.
  6. Mesozoic, What suspension upgrades have you made? Interested in how much drop in front and back. I had planned on 1" drop front and rear with 17 X 8's at all four corners wearing 245 45 R17's. Trying to visualize the stance and ride height. I want the staggered look but its my son's car. I love the stance of your car.
  7. Anyone used Doug's D6714 headers on their build? C6 or AOD clearance issues? Please leave feedback its much appreciated in advance.
  8. Wrobinson, Is this a special order cam ? Boilermaster, Yes, it is a custom grind from Comp Cams. I really wanted to order a custom from Blykins but already had this one available. Blykins seems to understand the specific needs of the 4V. dice d20
  9. In case anyone is wondering about camshaft specs: Competition Cams Hydraulic Roller duration @.050 224/230, ADV duration 275/281, lobe separation 110, intake center 106, lift 569/578 w/1.73 rockers (IVO 31.5, IVC 63.5, EVO 74.5, EVC 26.5, OVERLAP 58).
  10. Yep, that is the spreadsheets I used to come up with the compression numbers.
  11. Greetings guys, I need to know what is a safe dynamic compression ratio for 4V quench heads. The build is for my son's first car a 1973 Q code Mach 1. Currently, I have calculated the static compression at 10.29:1 and dynamic compression at 8.29:1. All calculations were done using spreadsheets provided by one of the 7173mustang forum post by DonC. I do not mind using 91-93 octane if the engine needs it. The 91 octane is fairly easy to find but 93 is getting harder in our area. I have run 9.7-10:1 static compression ratios on pump gas motors before but 10.3:1 seems extreme but this is our first Cleveland. I appreciate your input in advance. 357CI piston .018 in the hole .040 Cometic head gasket Sealed Power flat top piston top ring .375 from crown D0AE-N heads 63CC
  12. Robsweden, I am very interested in knowing the mods done to the 4R70W. Please let me know how the headers fit with the AODE transmission. I am in the process of completing the same swap on my son's 1973 Mach 1. Thank you in advance.
  13. I am really bummed out right now. I just went to Mustang Depots website to order my suspension kit. I got into the cart to pay and read they had permanently closed their doors. Does anyone sell suspension kits that can be upgraded and such like theirs? I am ready to purchase new suspension components for my sons 73 Mach 1. I appreciate any help that can be given.
  14. Yes staggered shocks. Did you have a custom exhaust done or is something available in the aftermarket?
