Re: 392 Ford....as a race engine?
You'll definately need an entire new engine if you're going that route. You're 351C wouldn't work.
The 392 stroker motor that you're hearing about, starts with a 351Windsor for the base block, not a 351Cleveland.
IIRC, and it'd take a bit of research......
You can put a 400M crank in a 351C. Mucho modification to do it though. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
As a bonus, that 392 stroker crate motor from Ford, weighs at least 100lbs less than the 351C.
You'll also need a different tranny, or an adapter, because the Cleveland and Windsor bell housings are different.
I about fell out of my chair when I saw where it makes it's peak HP... 6700 RPM!
Hmmmm, I don't feel that bad now.
My 425hp is at 4,500 rpms
Peak torque, 440lbs-ft is at 3,000.
