Getting around to the 71

Finally pulled the trigger on starting the work on the mustang this spring. Had a few burnt exhaust valves and the cylinder walls were starting to groove, so I determined that the best place to start was the engine.

Had the block bored 0.030 over and the original crank polished/balanced with Eagle rods and DSS forged flat tops. Heads I went with were Edelbrock 60cc E-streets, so I estimate somewhere around 9.5:1 compression. Went with a mild Summit cam with .274/.274 duration @.485/.485 lift.

 

Given that its a 302 car and already had a lot of aftermarket parts, I decided against going for an original restoration, but I want to keep it looking somewhat period-correct on the exterior.

I do however still have the original heads. The casting numbers are D0OE-B - free to a good home if anyone wants them. I'm located in East TN.

 

Next is the suspension. I'm looking at TCP's coilover system. Has anyone had any experience with them?
