Re: 351c with C6 into 67 Rear leaf springs?

The GT springs are a good all-around choice. Depending on how track focused you intend to be, you might also consider a set of Calvert Racing split mono-leaf springs.

Re: 390 build

Go with a 700-750 cfm carb. Stick with vacuum secondaries, since you'll be running an automatic. Schneider is another old-school cam grinder with a lot of FE experience, that can set you up with a cam specific to your application. http://schneidercams.com/

Re: What to do

As much as I love the 351W, I agree with J_Speegle that a factory big-block Cougar should have a big block. Finding the correct C6 may take some patience, but coming up with a usable 390 should be easy. The only significant external difference between the 390GT used in the Cougar and Mustang, and th...

On my black Eliminator for instance, he calculates it as a one of one, but never includes the special paint option. Doing so would have cut the number of steps to get there by half, or more, in my estimati...

Re: Addco rear sway bar

Anybody using the Addco 432 rear sway bar in the STOCK location. Looking at it, it looks the most similar to the stock bar. https://www.ebay.com/itm/67-70-Ford-Mustang-Mercury-Cougar-Addco-7-8-Black-Powdercoat-Rear-Sway-Bar-432/263102111275?hash=item3d421b9e2b:g:GegAAOSw0LxZc54V:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt...
