This is my 1968 F100 Prostreeter I built a few years ago. Its one of my favorites ever!!!
I had a 545cid P51 heads - Hydraulic roller bullet cam - full 3.5 inch exhaust out the back 3.70 gears c-6 trans 4250 lbs - 31x16.50 et streets. It ran 6.90 at 99mph in denton tx. Drive it everywhere and love it. I sold the motor out of it now I have a 10:1 528cid with the trick flow power ports same grind on the hyd roller cam and it runs 11.50`s at 117 in Amarillo TX with air density 6000-7000 feet. I`ll post both engine builds soon and my 589 and 532 that I ran in the mustang uptop.

Tim, Are the Diamond pistons you used custom order units or did you modify a Diamond "off the self" units. Thanks Ed

Yes They are custom because of the 4.56 bore size on both engines. I usually use ICON pistons - they are really good pistons at a decent price $600.00-$800.00 a set. Just a word of advise - most of your off the shelf pistons- Do Not go off the clearance specs that they put in every box!!! "that little piece of paper with clearance specs" - although if you call the piston manufacture and ask them what they recommend - 90% of the time they will recommend to set them up tighter. BBF Icon pistons street strip 2618 pistons work excellent at .0055. You can set them up at .007 or .008 will work to but you wont get that extra hone job when you refreshing your engine and oil control won`t be as good. I`ve had many that would scream when setup at .0075-.008.
