You can already make good power from a 351C. I'd like to see that install, though, as it's a pretty large engine. Gotta be pretty tight (even though the factory did put the FE engines in that series Mustang, which was also pretty tight). If you need something more than the 351, however, you could use factory mounts to install an FE big block, which range from 390-428 cid.

There are kits to put the 429/460 in them, but it's a REAL tight fit, with custom exhaust and some minor clearance issues in some areas. But you can make huge power from those engines rather cheaply, and it's still pretty cheap to buy a 460, as well.

Personally, however, for street use, you'll probably be money ahead by searching out ways to make power from the 351. 450-500 hp is doable in relatively streetable form. That's a lot in a car like that '67...

the clevelend is a good engine to work with...the clevelands weren't produced until '69 to take over for the windsor in the performance aspect. My question is, are you SURE it is a cleveland motor?

Well jackass, the 351 Cleveland is a good performance motor...but being as you don't have a cleveland according to all your other posts, you're kinda screwed(351C wasn't produced until '69). You also said that you had aluminum edelbrock heads and listed 3 different intake valve sizes which were clearly Windsor sizes. Even if you only have a 351W...you have great potential with those heads. Those heads will easily support 400rwhp with the right cam/intake/carb/headers. Unfortunately, your incessant ramblings and bullsh*t lies lead me to believe that you most likely have neither of those engines...I wouldn't be suprised if you didn't have a mustang at all. I'm also led to believe that you really don't know jacksh*t about cars being as all you do is copy+paste old advertisements whenever someone asks you what you know about something.

BTW Captain Jackass...what's your VIN number?

Sincerely,
One of the many that think you're a real f*ckin idiot

What makes it even better is that he listed three different intake valve sizes for the Edelbrock heads...which is all fine and well, but most of us who are familar with the aftermarket already know what sizes they come in.......You'd think that after spending over a grand on heads, that you would at least know what size valves YOU have.

If you want a nicer and better engineered engine then put in a twin turbo Lexus V8 and transmission.

You going to provide all the extra money to cover the extra costs? For the average person, you might as well suggest dropping in a Ferrari V12 from a 575M...

Sheesh.

I mean, I like the 1UZ V8s, and would like to put one in something, as it's the only modern V8 smaller and lighter than the small block Ford V8, but the cost of working with them is pretty crazy still, as most everything has to be custom made.

you say you want to put in a diff engine because the 351c doesn't have enough power? Hmm...how the hell much are you looking for?

You could go for a stroker kit and get some more cubes. Or, if you really wanted more power, I suppose you could go with a power adder.
