600hp build question P-51
Wintertime is coming up what means my engine will be modified (hopefully)..
My car is a ī69 Mustang with a almost stock 429 cui bbf engine, C-6 transmission, 9" 3.50:1 rear end, etc..
Currently Iīm running stock cast iron heads, Edelbrock Performer Intake, 770 Holley street avenger with vacuum secondary, full MSD Ignition (6AL), headers, electric fuel pump and thatīs it.
What I want to reach until next summer is a 600hp engine (crank) with aluminum heads, good drivable cam (mostly street driven car). Iīve red a lot about P-51 heads and I really like them.
I was in email contact with a Kaase guy, he sent me a whole list of parts. Iīm not sure if I really need all those parts, the problem is I canīt spend 7000 dollars on parts. 5000 dollars is about my maximum. I know thats a personal thing but I hope you can help me to sort out the parts I really need for my build. I would like to change only parts that have to be replaced for 600hp, not the whole engine. Would you recommend to stroke the engine? Can the stock crankshaft, pistons, rods, etc. be used at 600hp?
I hope you can help me with my (budget) issue.
