This will be a ways down the road, but we're trying to plan a complete buildup for a 331 stroker prepped for a vortech t-trim going EFI in an 89 mustang. We're thinking right now using a complete "stroker plus" short block from Keith Craft with eagle forged crank/rods, JE pistons. We'll have to decide on heads (AFR 185?), intake (vic jr), cam - probably comp custom xtreme energy hydraulic roller, and all the other accessories. Brent wants to run on 92 octane on the street with 10-12lbs of boost, but be able to turn it up to 15-16lbs of boost on race gas at the track. So what do you think?? Any thoughts or advice are appreciated. Thanks!

Anyone?? What kind of heads? How much cam? I'm thinking build it for a 6500rpm shift point. It needs to run mid-low 10s on race gas. Any general advice or do's/don'ts?

you got me......im still in the old school stuff. one reason i like this site is the old farts and the old school tech. stangnet and others are more suited toward the injected, turbo, and centrifigal blower stuff. hey the new style stuff is cool with me, injection and turbos are wicked....i just cant afford it so i dont study it and i cant help you. good luck.

67 coupe, 650dp and rpm intake on 5.0 with afr 165 heads, 4 speed, 4.11's.....best so far is [email protected] in 1/8 mile with 1.79 60ft. time.
