I'm running a 358w. T-5. 8.8 in my '79 Merc. Capri using Doug's headers 1-7/8' long tubes that slip together and leak terrible bad at slip joints and have had problems getting gaskets for the adapter plate that attaches to heads.

Would you suggest shorties or long tube?

It may be easier to start your own thread, as this one is from 2010 and IDK if the OP is still around.

I know you guys are probably tired of seeing this but since the track's closed for the winter I don't have anyone to videotape me. I drive the car all the time but it's kinda hard to drive and record at the same time .
thats badazz

FastStang91Lx Stock block... I'd quit at 408 and consider that 'safe'
December 21st, 2010 06:21 PM
Tony Silva what is a safe amount to stroke a 351
December 21st, 2010 02:15 PM
Ijuswan2gofast No not exactly it doesnt have the valve notches in it.. Im going to pull em out tonight.

FastStang91Lx Does it look like this up close? JEGS High Performance - 397-M-6108-Z351
December 21st, 2010 12:06 AM
FastStang91Lx I don't assemble my own engines, so I wouldn't know. If you can find some numbers on them, you can probably google it. That's my guess anyway.

Ijuswan2gofast What #s do I need off of the pistons to find out what they are.. They are ford racing pistons if that helps

Sorry I meant 61 cc heads. Have the trick flow gaskets .040

FastStang91Lx Let 'er buck. I know nitrous works well with higher compression and medium compression, not sure about lower You would have to do the math to figure out exactly where you are on compression anyway. A 58cc head will keep the compression up whereas a 65cc head will obviously lower it. Compressed thickness of headgasket as well as actual deck height vs. piston height are all determining factors.

Edit: Just reread... You have 66cc heads. Didn't know that was an option though?

Ijuswan2gofast Well I picked it up for 900 its ford racing rotating assembly. I dont think any one would argue forged 351w for 900 is not a bad deal with about 3000 miles on it.

I will get pics up later of it.. What do you guys think about lakewood traction bars?

Its going to be a weekend warrior so solid mounts or urethaine mounts.. Which either one what company?

like I said this is my first ford so need to get pointed in the right direction.. any help is greatly appreciated

ddarkslayer rotational mass is good for diesel engines

sickfox e3sean has had it wrong all this time!!!! AHHHHHHHHH

86_Notch I'll always take a 351 over a 302 based motor anyday . You get a stronger block, bigger headbolts for better clamping, and @ 50 more avaliable cubic inches either stock or stroked. Torque rules !!
