Project falcon 393

Post  johndickjr on November 24th 2013, 11:23 am

well my tranny need to be redone but to get it out i had to pull the 302 motor , after 3 hours of fighting to get header bolts off i decided in no way i am doing this again , so i picked up a mustang 2 front-end stuff, and decided to build my 393, since they car was running 11.50s in 1/4 mile and 7.20s 1/8 mile with no cage on 100% stock 1962 suspension on 4 wheel drum brakes to..lol i am upgrading the whole car, the 393 just kinda fell in my lap, at this time i have a nice machined 351w roller block thats .030 over with all new cam bearing and main studs, new 3.85 crank, and eagle h beam rods, just picked up the mustang 2 fronted stuff last night and a set of ross pistons, i have under $250 in everything right now, parts just seem to keep coming my way for cheap, ill keep this updated threw out the build with lots of info and pic on putting mustang2 front end on a falcon, headers used, etc..

I have a set of tfs-r 225 heads that are cnc ported that are ready for valves and springs if that would work with your pistons.     We made 675hp with these on a 370ci 10:1 motor.

I have a turbocharged 393 in my '79 mustang. The thrust on my 351 crank got wasted, I already had some nice H-beam rods, so I went with the 393 too. It did not make sense to put money into another 351 crank.

Sounds like you have a nice project going.

If you're putting a cage in it ,take a look at a strut set up.... They don't require a cross member that's gonna get in the way.

crites headers did not fit my heads, i ended up using headman headers for a 1964 351w mustang, just about ready to build motor , the last 2 weeks has been 95-100+ degrees mixed with my 65 hrs a week of work and 3 nights of school, im either wore out or to hot

car with no cage and a iron head 302 and stock leaf springs was 2400 lbs, now it has a 351w with iron heads, a 8 point roll bar , and ladder bars with coil overs, maybe around 2700 now, i know the ladders bar setup was lot lighter then the heavy ass leaf springs
