I have a 69 Fairlane 500 that I am putting together a 429 motor for. My plans are for it to be a stockish street cruiser with a few mods. Been contemplating whether to use D0VE-C heads or D3VE's. Main reason for indecision is compression . My motor is out of a 72 Torino and had the D2 door stops on it. Plan on installing a mild RV cam , and have a Streetmaster intake also. The car will be stripped of all chrome and will be setup similar to a NASCAR profile with wide tires , and black D slot wheels. I am in the process of shaving as much of the shock towers from each side to make things a little easier for the transition. I plan on tabbing my own headers using as much scrap tubing ,with new header flanges. Going with a remote oil filter, and most likely a 1 1/8" front BBF sway bar. I will be poking around here for info on a daily basis, and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing.

Hahaha. I know what you mean. My project changes on a daily basis. My wife can't figure. Out why I want to sell my nice aluminum wheels for some plain D slots. But ,she knows I have a plan......and she's seen me build some motorcycles that in the beginning she thought looked like crap. Then she changed her mind after seeing the finished product. This is going to be a fun car to drive!

My new C8 heads arrived Saturday evening, finally. New ford racing valves hardened seats, new springs, and ready to bolt on. Getting gaskets and other small items together to go back together with the motor. I'm decided the stock intake manifold is what I will use,. Would an Edlebrock performer work better than the stock cast iron?

Just my thoughts on the intake is Yes use the edelbrock save weight and I'm sure it flows better then the cast,you might want to think about maybe a wiend stealth or torker 2 intake. my 2cents worth. good luck with the build
