Steve: Welcome to the forum !

I also have a 87 Turbo Coupe currently with a 460 truck engine (hopefully soon with a Kaase Boss)

Good selection on the P 51 heads and H-beams. The Kaase oil pump from what I have heard is one trick piece.

Lots of good engine builders on here with good advice.

If someone post some B.S. advise on this forum, it doesn't take long for the good experienced builders to chime in and post their opinions.

Keep us posted with your project.
