Tech Torque Pre 1973 / Re: 331 stroker build
« Last post by barnett468 on Today at 01:07:23 AM »
oh boy, this will be fun . you will get lots of great suggestions but to start with i would use a holley carb.

how far do you want to rev it?

what is your trans?

what is your gear ratio?

do you want a mild, moderate, or nasty idle?

do you want a roller cam?


you will need around 10.0 compression irregardless of what you do.

yes, porting those particular heads will help.

300 hp is achievable with those heads but the more power you have the less bottom end it will have and the rougher the idle will be.

Tech Torque Pre 1973 / Re: 68 Mustang with 67 Side flutes

Original colour was Highland green

Sure looks like silver paint to me on the bottom side of your rear quarter panel but it could also be bare metal, it's hard to tell with your low rez photos.

Unfortunately your photos are useless because the resolution is way too low.

Stick with the original lap belts, if you fit retractable, I know in WA you need approval.

Tech Torque Pre 1973 / 331 stroker build
« Last post by roberta on Yesterday at 10:55:51 PM »
So been buying things to build new motor for my 65 vert.....I want to use the items I have and looking for any advice to ensure a balanced setup....I have gt40p heads and a virgin bore 289 to work with....(i know alum heads will be much better...but not the look I want.)....main questions are will mech fuel pump be good enough ? ... have 600cfm autolite 4100 .. is that going to do ok ?...what size valves should I be getting into the gt40p's ? (someone suggested ferra 1.94" / 1.55" s/s)   ... should I have some porting done ?? have around 8-10k for the build...(on top of everything I have already) Because it's a cruiser just wanted a bit more torque (old 302 in it is tired/leaks and ready to retire)....was told stroker way to go...looking at 300hp

Tech Torque Pre 1973 / Seat belts in SA

At some stage I'll be going through the regency inspection process and wondering what's required for seatbelts in a 66.

The shell I've got already has all the mounts in place and they're the same size and shape of the local ADR compliant ones being sold on fleabay.

To satisfy the inspectors, do I just need to have new ADR compliant belts fitted? or will I need sign off by a licensed fitter or engineer?

Size, PCD and offset won't be an issue, it's Brembo clearance on the rear profile that causes the dramas.

We don't have any passenger wheels in our whole range that clear the brembos.  Yes, I know ... and it drives me nuts.
