I'm now ready to upgrade my stock engine to a crate engine from Ford Racing. A 347 stroker, part# M-6007-Z347*

I wonder if soneone here did already get experince with this configuration, or better that already got this engine in his car.

I know that there is plenty of engine builder in the US. As i've to order it from belgium, i need something simple to order & ship to europe (via L.A. port, container from a friend).  My friend, isn't in the mustang business, so it's not possible for him, to follow the engine building process for me.

just for info, Gearbox (T5) & Rear End (9'') was build by: Alan from mustang central  (GA).

im in GA :)

fordstrokers can build you a complete motor, but 9k$ for that ford racing motor is way way way overpriced

give woody a call tell him what that motor has and what you want(how complete) and he can hook you right on up
