<P ALIGN=CENTER><font color="990000"> Hey Ozona, long time no hear! OK, I must admit that I'm getting worried now. The other day I got all of the final specifications in to Kerri over at FFR. Front spindles are from a 1995, got the 4 into from FFR, bare frame, and picked up all sorts of goodies from POR 15. Dang near spent as much
with POR as I did with FFR. My setup is for a 351W as well (351 stroked to 392). I know that the 351 does have a taller deck height than the 302, but didn't think that it would be a problem as far as hood clearance. It is EFI as is yours, and if I'm understanding you correctly, you and I both will have problems with hood clearance. Did you try the drop motor mounts? Not sure how much they drop the engine, but certainly I don't want to be shaving a half an inch off my intake runners or where the upper plenum meets the lower. Man you're going to have to tell me what you conclusion is, once you've reached on. By the way, I drove out to the PRO in Valpo. Nice place but really small inside. Had everything in stock that I could possibly need or want -- and the owner Jim even threw in a few free items, after he flipped me over and shook out every nickel I had. Nice guy though, and was only an hour drive. Think I'm going to have to take a few trips to Naperville in the near future to see how you shoehorned things in. I'm also worried about hooking up! From the sound of things on the forum, guys with an abundance of power have absolutely no traction until their damn near in third gear! Car with 400, 500 and 600 hp all running the same ET because the more you've got under the hood, the less traction you have in a 2,000 pound car. My mustang donor can run low 11's all day long. I don't want to build a car that can't hook and in the long run -- have a car that's 1,200 pounds lighter than my stang, yet still slower. Good luck with getting things to fit. Let me know what comes of it.........
