I have a 1973 351C 2v that was freshened up with some gaskets, rebuilt carb, plugs, wires, ect. The only upgrade is the hooker headers.

I don't care if the big mustangs ever command the big bucks like the earlier ones, but in my humble opinion, the 71 - 73 are the baddest of them all. The size the shape, you can sit any motor in it you want. Parts are not too outrageous.

 

I respect everything that everyone has done. Damn I wish I knew you guys when I first started my build.

Chuck,

 

Have you seen Dan Jones' reports that balancing the runner flow on the Blue Thunder intake was worth around 40 HP on his dyno mule? Just thought I'd mention it. I ran one on my 4V Cleveland before I went to the 460. Had I kept the Cleveland I think I would have tried it myself.

73 conv. 460, D0VE large valve heads, Performer RPM manifold, Voodoo 227/233 cam, Holley 950 HP carb, C6 trans, 3.25 trak-loc.

Ok, after Roy´s pics, this looks kinda cheesy but I´ll throw mine in anyway:

351W Ford Racing crate engine.

Don´t ask me about the specs, I misplaced the sheet with the details. :dodgy:

It came with an Edelbrock performer RPM intake and a Duraspark ignition that we coupled to an MSD, that I remember.

 

Fresh from the crate:

After paint it looks like a Ford engine. :D:

Tommy, I had read it before the build. Thats is why I did the blend work. I didn't flow the intake but, the work I did couldn't have hurt anything. Thanks for the comment. It sounds like we visit the same "non-primary" sites. That quoted term in the last comment was for Roy's

consumption.:D Chuck

Got this 351C 4V quench from Don at OMS. Aside from a mild cam

it is pure stock Cleveland. Don sold me the freshly remanufactured

long block and I added some minor cosmetic enhancements.

The engine has about 300 miles on it.

My engine is probably the weakest Cleveland to be "built" at my friend's shop. It is at present a standard bore 71 block with an Isky RV cam and flat top pistons. The heads are 2v pieces of unknown vintage. The bosses are cut for screw-in studs and guideplates. Ford Motorsports roller rockers open 1 piece stainless valves with stock replacement springs and hardened valve seats. Minor porting was done to the valve bowl area and all the "boogers" in the ports were smoothed but the ports were left stock sized. The intake is an Edelbrock Performer that remains untouched. The carb is a Holley assembled from pieces and parts and flows approximately flows 650 cfm. Spark comes from an MSD (motorsports) controlled Duraspark distributor and Taylor wires. I have finished it with "old" Ford blue and a pair of old school Mickey Thompson valve covers. Here's a shot just after it was dropped in (best it has ever looked).

I'd take that setup any day of the week! In reality it is probably one of the BEST street motors on here. Well done! It looks great too my friend!
