First timer here.
I've got a 68 mustang coup project car that I got a few years back and was looking for some advice on a few things. The prior owner was en engine guy that wasn't completely 'finish' quality. He swapped out a 77-78 lincoln lima 460 w/ C6. He went over the engine and replaced the cam shaft w/ a hydraulic cam (not too aggressive). He also replaced/upgraded the rear end with a 9" from a ford grenade with disk brakes etc.
The car has been soda blasted and new panels have been applied to the car but a shop. Unfortunately, the arrangement went sour with the shop so that took a while to straighten out. Its the age ole store of a bait-n-switch...
The hard work is mostly done though and the engine bay is ready to have the engine put back in. Painting the car after the engine goes back in. There's still quite a bit of body work needed. ~200-250 hrs i'd say
First, the C6 is being rebuilt locally and the guys has done lots of trannies, so I'm at least comfortable there.
The engine though needs some work around gasketing, clean-up. paint etc. The rear of the intake leaked oil over everything. Above 5000 rpm the oil pressure would piss out and he never re-seated the gaskets.
The intake is the edelbrock 460 performer. Probably this one: https://www.edelbrock.com/performer-...fold-2166.html
Question I have is should I upgrade the intake to the RPM Air-Gap? or performer RPM?
I've got to take it off anyway and replace the gaskets so newer could be better? BTW, the engine had a little hesitation on punching the gas peddle (its either air or gas related right). Not sure what caused that.
I'll post pics of the engine and car once I figure out if I can (since its a new account).
