Thanks, yes she is! That Faclon looks pretty mean. What are you planning for the 68?

Great job! I am thinking about putting my "spare" 460/C6 on E85 into my 68 coupe. Are the Crites mounts a nice piece? Will probably go that route and run their headers also. How much of a PITA is it to work on?

The Crites mounts are nice, the engine sits up and forward a bit but the trans lines up to the original C6 trans mount and big block drive shaft used on the 390/C6 from the factory. So the factory C6 shift linkage works too. It was a nice option if you have the factory parts. The Crites Headers are very close to the Tubular Automotive Headers I had. If you lower the front, ground clearance is an issue and you CAN'T run power steering with those headers.
E85 would be cool (pun intended). If it were more available here I would use it! Anytime you have questions, I'd be glad to help!

Crites now uses a "Gen II" mount which lowers the engine and moves it back toward the firewall about 1" each way. They also now sell different headers for the new mounts.

A search will provide pictures of teh setup...Nickbay posted some pics (gen II mounts and crites headers) and I have posted as well using the Gen II mounts with FPA headers.

Thats great, I guess I am out of date. I got my Crites mounts back in the early 90's. I did the FPA header swap a year or two ago and I love those!
here is a pic of my "1st Gen" Crites MM's

Yep..that looks familar...been running FPA's and Gen 1's for about 8 years. Just now in the process of switching to Gen 2's but keeping the FPA's. Needed some clearancing here and there for this setup.

lower and set back should be a benift for balance. Do you have to fab a trans Xmember and new drive shaft or is 1" within the adjustablity? I may consider Gen 2's to get more rise on my intake and still fit under the hood!

Driveshaft will depend on how much slop you currently have.

Can't say about the cross member....i would think you could probably slot the holes yourself to get the additional 1".

those Tubular Automotive headers, you said crites has some that look just like them.. so would a guy call crites and ask for headers for a 460 in a 67 mustang? .. Nice car by the way

while I was at the show on Sunday, I talked with the Spectre vendors (really great people BTW) about a cold air intake for my Stang. They said bring the car over and they mocked up what I need.


Not sure how much HP gain for the cost but under hood temps do get pretty high in the summer. This should help.
