I own a 68 Mustang coupe that I have restored, now it’s engine time and I have decided to go the crate route.

I will be driving the car 2000-5000 miles a years, it will only see nice weather on the weekends, car shows for fun, terrorizing the local chevy contingent and taken out to the drags and the track once in a while and of course long drives.

There is a crate company called T & L engines that sells a 347 stroker with a weber stack.

My question is for what I will be doing with this car do you feel this set up is fine?

Can someone please enlighten me as to how hard it is to tune these how long they stay tuned and the pitfalls?

And if anybody has any experience with T & L I’m all ears.

Thanks.

p.s. did I post this in the right spot?

Webbers are good carbs BUT are high maintenance and things like dry gaskets throw them out easily , either install injection which will offer more reliability and probably more power or consider maybe some triple 97 style arrangement

if you are going down the crate route, go and get a 363 windsor instead.

the best injection for the windsor is a DC & O manifold. but they dont sell to the public or ask john kaase racing in the usa if he can make you a manifold.

forget webers, they are too problematic. when the go great they are magic but thats only 10% of the time the rest is tuning and idling
