Junkyard 5.0L and a 200 shot.

Displacement or forced induction makes it easier. A 351 will make 400hp with no sweat.

Are there any constraints on it? N/A, only 302 cubes, etc etc?

Dubz,dont have a 351w?
If so 10.5 compression,RPM heads,270s cam and a RPM intake should get you real close to 400hp.
Thats just my guess.

I'd listen to Steve's advice,he's already been there.
It's always better to take the advice of the OLD guys.

could I do it with a Holley 670 and World's Iron Heads? (as well as the other goodies, no i do not think just a carb and heads will make that power)

You'll come close, but w/o a little porting you'll be a bit short.

Well in the last week or so i have decided that this car (my first car that i purchased, 74 Gran Torino) will be a 95% street car, so over 400 hp will be too much. As well as expensive when i'm only 20 and going to university. Plus a smaller car such as another mustang (i had a 70 Grande) but an earlier style, or a newer car would be good for a BIG build up, just as a weekend cruiser

So with a
-670cfm Street Avenger (advertized as 300-400 hp)
-270H from Comp Cams (224/224 and .500/.500)
-World 64cc combustion chamber, 200cc intake runners, cast iron, Roush 200 cylinder heads, 2.02 in. intake and 1.60 in. exhaust
-maybe 1.7 roller rockers to increase lift and duration by a couple degrees
-performer rpm air gap intake
-9.5 to 10.0:1 compression

i should be able to hit 400

Dubz,

That may or may not hit the number, but it would be a great street motor and run like a raped ape.

Dubz that sound like a great motor you putting together.And theres no such thing as to much power but there sure is not enough money.

670cfm Street Avenger (advertized as 300-400 hp)
-270H from Comp Cams (224/224 and .500/.500)
-World 64cc combustion chamber, 200cc intake runners, cast iron, Roush 200 cylinder heads, 2.02 in. intake and 1.60 in. exhaust
-maybe 1.7 roller rockers to increase lift and duration by a couple degrees
-performer rpm air gap intake
-9.5 to 10.0:1 compression

I'd be real happy to have motor like that.

Right Now she is bone stock, and i need seats, as well as a paint job, so all the engine work might not get done this year....If you have a car money is always low!!

Brakes,suspension,trans,and motor,then seats and paint.
Thats the way I think cars should be done.
I did brakes and trans and most of the interior all but the front seats.The rest is getting done alittle at a time.

Thats a great motor set up your thinking of doing.

Just today I was looking at those at Summit Racing.They are real cool,but I'd save my money for other things for now.Is there a junk yard near you?
If so go check out some newer T-birbs or Mustang seats the look good and are nice to sit in.And for around $100 or less for the pair you can;t go wrong.

Not to get off topic but having no seats reminded me of my first vehicle a 66 ford pickup.I bought it as a shell and put in a motor and tranny and I just had to take it out for a spin even though it had no seats and was far from roadworthy.I was sitting on my metal toolbox,got her up to about 30 mph and the two peice driveshaft came apart and the front of the rear driveshaft dug in and lifted the rear end of the truck about two feet in the air.Man when that thing landed I came down on the edge of that tool box in a very "sensitive" area.Luckily I was still able to have children .Anyhow I can see the importance of seats!
