Carbcrushing Workout

I'm building a 302 H.O. bored 0.040 over with World Products Windsor Jr. heads (PN 053030-2), an RPM Air Gap intake, a Holley 750hp mechanical-secondary carburetor, forged TRW pistons with four reliefs (PN 2482), a Ford Racing timing chain with multi-keyed crank sprocket, a stock crank, stock rods, and a zero-deck-height block. I'll be using Comp Cams roller-tip rockers (PN 1431-16), Cometic head gaskets, and I have three cams F303, X303, 51025 Lunati. Which one should I use I would like to...

Many Ford enthusiasts pinpoint the Lincoln Mark VIII as the beginning of the modular revolution, but that is incorrect. In fact, the first modular engine showed up as early as 1991 between the fenders of the Lincoln Town Car. The new 4.6L engines featured cast-iron blocks and a single camshaft resting on each of the aluminum heads. If you look hard enough, you can find one of these early 4.6L blocks that feature a 302 5.0 bell-housing bolt pattern. In 1992, the Mustang minions continued to...

GOT A tired left leg Blame the Mustang's ancestry. Your late-model Mustang inherited its clutch cable from the Pinto-based Mustang II. Sure, the cable was perfectly adequate for working the clutch behind the anemic V-8 of the time, but the Ford engineers probably didn't anticipate that their clutch-release system would still be used 30 years later on a 390hp Mustang Cobra. In fact, it wasn't until the '05 S197 platform that the Mustang got its first hydraulic clutch. THE MAXIMUM Motorsports...

(see my blog at www.stefanolazzarino.com) and the site publisher of Auto Tecnica (www.nuoviperiodicimilanesi.com). Stefano, the 3.73 gears will be available with the Track Pack option, and this includes the locking differential. In fact, all V-8-equipped Mustangs since 1986 have featured the Traction-Lok differential. The AdvanceTrac is Ford's stability control. As we experienced firsthand, it's very useful in providing the driver with much more control as the limit of grip is approached. Ed. I...

Power By Design

UNDER THE hood lies 302 inches of modular Ford muscle. With the help of a Kenne Bell Twin Screw supercharger, the stroker mill produces a healthy 643 rwhp. the same rear-wheel horsepower, but there was a noticeable change in torque in the lower rpm range, Joe states. Once he became comfortable with his GT's power level, Joe added ported heads and Comp cams. With a little extra boost from the Kenne Bell, this Pony shot into the 500-rwhp zone, and 11-second quarter-mile times came with it....

THE YEAR 1996 had a lot of Mustang enthusiasts scratching their heads. The body of their beloved ponycar looked the same, but under the hood was something quite unfamiliar. It was the debut of the overhead-cam modular V-8 engine in the Mustang, and many enthusiasts wrote the little 281 i mill off from the get-go. Add in OBD II computer programming and it would seem the fun days were over. In Dearborn, Team Mustang continued to improve the overhead-cam engine design, as did John Coletti's SVT...
