  • New Inline Ford Project

    Its somthing differant in a 66 Mustang than your standard 289/302.....

    1978 200 inline 6 ;D



    Bored .060 over, balanced, 0 decked, 11:1 compression Clay Smith 274 duration .480 lift cam, RAS 1.6 ratio roller rockers, Classic Inlines performance balancer, double roller timing chain & gears, hardened pushrods, 7 qt oil pan, aluminum valve cover, dual out headers and 3500 rpm stall convertor.

    Plus its got the new Classic Inlines Aluminum head and 4 Bbl intake, so no more integral intake and puny carb!

    DUI distro, Accel wires, ARP rod bolts & head studs, 600 cfm Holley 4 bbl and 3:80 gears.

    It weighs 2756 lbs with me and a 1/4 tank of gas. And yes the car has been put on a diet.



    The best it ran last summer was a 15.28 @ 89 mph (1/4 mile) with a horrible 2.28 60' time boiling the right rear tire. Needs a trac loc.....

    I race it at least twice a month....my local track is in Michigan and its a 153 mile round trip but I dont complain!

    Just dropped the short block in tonite. Engine needed freshening up and the head gets dropped off monday at the machine shop for some new larger intake valves.

    looking for mid 14's @ 93 mph this summer. N/A no power adder....not bad for 206 cubic inches.

    Later,

    Doug

    Any reason you can't run the 300 I-6?

      No reason I couldnt. I'd thought about it a few years ago but Classic Inlines introduced the new aluminum head this past summer for the small 6 so I'm staying with it.

        Oh, okay. I always thought that the 300 was one of the best engines Ford ever made. Nice engine and Mustang by the way! ;D

            Now my tow vehicle/daily driver truck has the 300 6....and yes I agree with you that the 300 6 was one of the best motors Ford ever made! ;D

                    that's neat! will the head fit on a 250? would a 250 fit in the car? (I think the bellhousing is different, what else?)

                        Very cool ... curious why you wouldn't spank that puppy with just a bit of Nitrous to kinda ... well you know... pick it up a bit...

                        Chad... well we've done one of these things and it's a pretty good time...

                        Honestly there was like a 75hp hit that was perfect...didn't hurt a thing...

                          Great car and motor! Where in Michigan? I'm from Ann Arbor, but retired to NC, on account of I'm old. I run a 250 Chevy in LSR, so I dig the inline stuff.

                            David,

                            Cool looking forum! I'm always looking for more race tech and there is a bunch of it here!

                            Squirrel,

                            Yep the head will fit a 170 200 or 250. A 250 will fit in it but they are really rare around my area. Never seen one with my own eyes.

                            Rich,

                            Glad that you posted the link here! ;)

                            Keith, Thanks! jsut somthing differant. I've thought about adding a 75-125 shot but I'm not sure how the cast 4 cylinder pistons will hold up to it?

                            Dan,

                            I'm originally from S.W. lower Michigan but now I live in Northern Indiana. The track I race at is Knollgas Motorsports Park formerly the old Martin US 131 Dragway.

                            I like any and all brands inline stuff! I dont discriminate at all... ;D ;D
