The old standby 302 5.0L or 351 5.8L pushrod Ford Small block has been around forever and for good reason. Small cubes mean quick and high revving with a high torque curve that made the Mustang V8 a stoplight performer and drag strip warrior. Mustang budget short block is a great choice if your pony has lost some of it's stride or a completely built Ford Racing Crate motor would work just as well between the frame rails of your Mustang driver or racer. Lot's of short blocks, long blocks and crate engines for your Mustang pleasure.
Just a quick note to say what great people (Eddie Davis) are at Latemodel Restoration. I ordered and bought a set of Track Pack Wheels for my 2014 Mustang GT.Their prices and service is the BEST in the MUSTANG INDUSTRY, not only the price and service but the honesty. The wheels came thru with the wrong center caps one call to Eddie Davis corrected the situation in one phone call and the next day I had the center caps (FORD RACING) the correct ones no BS, they just did the Right Thing,whereas in this Day and Age you don't here that often. LATEMODEL RESTORATION is the only place for your Mustangs parts and equipment, trust me try them and you will see what I mean!!
