I just finished the build of my 351, I used Edelbock Performer Rpm heads, intake, cam and have 9.8 to 1 compression, motor looks great, Milodon gold anodized oil pan, ARP stainless bolts, nickel chrome headers ordered for it.
As soon as I get the headers it's off to the dyno, hoping for 400+ horsepower.


Complete build with machine work was $3500 and a few dinners/beers with my cousin for the help on assembly.

Try World Products Roush 200 heads, Comp 270 magnum cam (Per Alex ), Edelbrock performer RPM Air-Gap intake, and a holley 700 double pumper.
Hooker and Hedman make good headers.
Of course if you really want more wheaties, go with the Scat 3.85 stroke crank (with KB-Silvolite pistons) for an easy 393 cubic inches.

With Edelbrock RPM heads and intake, Comp 282S cam, and a 750 cfm vac Holley on their 351W Melissa and SteveW (steve'66) are running 12.4's all day in the 1/4 mile (with a better 60' it will run 12.1-2). Just thought I would give you an idea what sort of power you could be looking at with these four little parts .

Try Ford blue
I've seen to many engines that people have gone out of there way to make it look good.And while they have the motor out or apart they never even paint it.

Before I'd even heard of Ford blue, I painted my engine orange, which later turned out to be Chebbie orange! Looks nice though. Ford blue is sort of depressing

It's bored .030 over w/ forged aluminum flat top pistons. Compression ratio is 10-1. The parts may be for sale this summer too.

Plasticote #224 Engine paint is the correct color for early fords, they have another one that is lighter blue and real ugly if you ask me.

Uh Oh, will my new motor be slow if I didn't use Alex's special go fast paint?
