351w stroker buildup
Since the tow truck driver destroyed my frame and the 250 is free it's time to pour WAY to much money into this one.
First step is the motor. It has a 351W in there now. First thing to go is ALL the smog crap including Cats (trailer only).
I was lookin at a few stroker kits for the 351 and some of them use chevy rods??? It says use a stock 302 piston to yield the correct compression height. Not too sure about this mix of parts. Id rather use the stock ford rods and the 302 pistons like one of the other kits does. Has anyone ever heard of this or better yet used it?
Next question is about MAF. A friend just did it to his mustang with all junkyard parts and says it works great. He swapped cams and it automatically compenstes for it? He said he grabbed the computer and the wires that run to the sensor along with the sensor itself. The rest of the harness he left alone. He has GT40 heads and headers on it. Does this sound feasible assuming i can grab the parts for cheap at the yard. I know a few guys here have complete setups for sale. Even if u do spend the $$$ for the kit how much can i do to the engine before i require the computer to be modified? Larger injectors might be in order also. Does anyone know of/have software that will interface the PCM to my PC for reprogramming or is it better to send it out?
Sorry for the long a$$ post but i have a lot on my mind now and would like to get a concrete plan together so i can start buying parts.
