Hey Guys,  I'm new here and really like this site and have some questions about a 289 build.

First off it's in a 66 Fairlane 2 door hrdtp with AC/PS and a C4. It's also got the 3:00 gears in the 8 inch.....very basic Fairlane but she's sweet and the stock AC works!

What I want is a good set up that'll turn easy to say 6000 rpm yet be very streetable, maybe something in the 280-300 hp range. I'm looking for some fire breathing tire burning monster, remember nice and mild compared to what I've read on this site.

What I've got right now is a Ford Factory high rise aluminum dual plane intake which I want to use, it's cool and hope it'll flow to 6000 rpm.
Long tube headers with H pipe and electric cutouts whenever they soot me.
I also hope to get some good 289 heads that have been tricked out.....ported/polished, larger valves and guide plates with screw in studs. I'm getting a great deal on these and want to use them. I know there are better heads out there but for my 280-300 hp needs these will work fine. I wanted to use a 302 crank but not sure what rods to use and would using a 302 crank and different rods really make a better set up?

I also plan on using some custom cam from Jay if I can ever get  him on the phone. I want to use the stock convertor and 3:25 gears if possible.

1 - See this article http://sbftech.com/index.php/topic,53.0.html

2 - Jay is out of the game.  For 300hp and a dual plane, you dont need a custom cam (yeah, I said it)... I would buy some link bar roller lifters or use a roller block and grab a stock HO Mustang roller cam.

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

they are a great shape. id love to own one, one day but they never came out over here as far as i know.
there are a few here tho and ive seen a couple with big blocks, mainly F.Es  but most are 289,302 or 351 windsors.......i have seen one with a 427 sohc in it, had a tear drop hood and mini tubs. prety sure it had mustang II suspension or similar...was a tight fit.
