Russ, that '73 Clevo will breathe a whole lot better with a roller cam.  You also need to replace that intake manifold with a 4V aftermarket one  (dual plane) with a good 4v carb sitting on top, and a set of long tube headers.  Those Cleveland heads were the best in the business until the aluminum aftermarket heads were  invented for the 351 W engine.  So, I would wait on spending a thousand or so on heads.  Just think of anything to get her breathing better, like a K&N air filter for instance.

that is what I am looking for thank you. I thought I couldn't use 4V parts on a 2v engine. I am trying to figure out how I can mix match that kind of stuff. Just like putting a 400 crank and 327 heads on a 350 and making that 383 stroker.

I dont know why or how I can use a different intake and if it would hurt it. I have a 650 CFM Carter That will go on and that cast iron intake will go bye bye. Keep the info rolling for me. Thanks

This is just a suggestion, and a suggestion only.  I have been moderating Mustang sites for several years now, and the carburetor and intake system that works best for most Mustang owners with that engine is the Edelbrock system.  Research the Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and the Edelbrock Performer 500 CFM 1403 (non EGR) carburetor.  650 CFM's is too much carburetor for your engine even after the addition of the roller cam, the intake and the carb.  The heads on that Clevo of yours will accept either the 2V or the 4V intake and carb.  That 73 Clevo is a dog when it comes to performance as it is set up.  You have to remember (or understand)  that we had to sit in line for hours to get a limited amount of gas back then, so these old engines were designed to not have a whole lot of power in order to save gas. The block and the heads are the same as they were in '69 when they were the muscle car of the industry, but things changed the cams, carbs etc.  Blame this on  the left wing government at the time.

well the left wing bed wetting wont let me bring this car down. I thought I had to use only 2v stuff, and that 4v would be too much for the 2v engine. The carter is just something my buddy gave to me and nothing that has to go on.

  I hope to keep the idea comming. I am also hoping that I could bore out the motor thirty over, I know it doesn't need it, but thinking I could get some better compression out of her, and see what I can do with the heads as far as the valves. I have to get a completly new exhaust which will be a dual. The headers are still a must but dont know which ones I am going to get.

  I still haven't put much thought into which cam to get and of course if I am going to get that roller then the lifters and rockers are a must. I am going to put the A/C back on and trying to make up for the HP I am going to lose due to it being on there.


I am still not sure on the fmx, but that is why I have you guys
