Hi! I love the site and I'm looking forward to talking to ya'll. I have a 67 Cougar with a 289 (Jezebel) and a 74 Ranchero GT Q-code (Sandra Gayle) I'm currently trying to rebuild/soup-up the Ranchero. Any Advice comments and theories are greatly appreciated. Trying to do it for under $3k if at all possible but my goal is 500hp. Thank you and I look forward to working with ya'll.

Welcome to M&M, my suggestion is to put the 3 grand into the 289. Just kidding....there are a few Cleveland people here that will gladly tell you how to spend YOUR money.
