Has anybody here had an engine built by Coast High Performance in Torrance, Ca? They build stroker motors for Fords. I was thinking of maybe having them do a 351W stroked to 427 for my '70. I'd like a 460, but damn, the weight would be too much. If you haven't used Coast, can anybody recommend a good place to get a stroker?

Larry got one of those 427w's from them for a Cougar he was doing. He had nothing but good things to say about the whole deal.

I emailed a guy off of stangnet who has a cool 65 coupe. We got on the subject of engines, and he has a 347 short block from Coast. He put Trick Flows on it and said that he is pulling at lest 500hp (cam is nasty). He makes new SS looks like it is going backwards he says. He is in love with his engine. Nothing wrong with CHP. Little pricy, but great quality.

I am looking for that power in a 393, which will be milder. I am going with www.indymustang.com . If you have questions about indy, email the guy as the engines shown are guidelines. They are going to make me a custom 393 with a hyd. roller cam, edel vic jr heads, forged pistons/crank long block including balancing and portmatching my intake for $5250 shipped. It will push 500 hp and not be too wild with the cam. (357 = $4445 shipped) Pretty good deal.

Check out this place www.centralcoastmustang.com/index.htm too. I've been very pleased with my new engine and I know they have others.

I just ordered a 427w this week from Coast High Performance this week. It will take them a few weeks to put it together. Can't tell you about the product yet, but I have been pleased with the Customer service / Sales. I dealt with a guy by the name of Mike Capp, he has been a great help, and very informative. I am super excited about getting the motor! I should have about 510 hp..... Do you think thats enough for a street rod??? Paul

Paul, let me know how the motor turns out when you get it. I was thinking of the 427W for my '70, and 510hp sounds like fun... . I'd be interested in hearing how you had yours set up, ie: heads, cams and such.

actually, I started with a brand-new in the crate 1995 Lightning 351W short block I had laying around. I took it to Coast High for the blueprint and balance and eventually decided to let them finish the long block as I used TFS Twisted Wedge heads that I did the Stage III porting at home on (many, many hours). The finished product was amazing. I got to know Mark Jeffrey at Coast High pretty well and in my opinion, he personifies the whole operation as top notch. Its interesting to note that once they had my motor assembled, they installed a Victor Jr intake and 850 Holley and managed to pull 523 hp out of it. Not bad!!!

Coast built my 302(342) roller. Nothing bad I can say about them except the time it can take to get the motor. If you ask for custom stuff it adds a lot of time. All I asked was for them to port match the intake and that added a month to the project.

I got it running about 6 months ago. I still haven't worked out all the tuning bugs(fuel/timing) but the motor is smooth and strong. I like the work enough that I will probably order a stroked 351W from them as well.

Bossman,

Thats a good looking motor!

JAZZYY, thats great to hear. Most of the people I have talked to have had a lot of good things to say about CHP, thats why I ordered from them.

Well, from all the good things y'all have said about CHP I think I'll be looking to them to make me a 427W stroker for my '70. Now I just need to save the $$ and think about what tranny to build to replace the FMX my car has now.
