How to modernize a 289/302
« on: March 23, 2010, 11:20:50 AM »
Those of you with tired old 289's and 302's might want to read this article if you are planning to upgrade your engine.  It has all the right stuff that has been tried and proven.   I put it in the classic Mustang section FAQ under the engine category in case it is needed for future use.
