Cool 427 in a 65 Mustang??

Just considering a 351w 427 Ford Racing Engine (600 hp) in my 65 Mustang. I have a tired V8 right now and I want to go fast. I have all new better than stock suspension and 17 tires. I also have power steering and A/C. I will eventually get a new transmission and rear diff. Will all these fit where they used to. I know I will have to put new headers on, but what else?

I have a 351w based motor in my 65. It is really tight, but certainly can be down. You typically need a bracket to drop the steering linkage down about an inch to clear the headers. Headmen sells one for about $15. Depending on wether you have a manual or automatic transmission, your header choices can get pretty limited. If you have a stick and want to swap the clutch to a cable or hydraulic, you open up more choices. I stuck with the z-bar linkage and the headers do some crazy stuff to clear the z-bar.

I want to stick with an automatic transmission. Does the PS and AC still bolt on the 351 block? Will that much HP twist the frame. I use Monte Carlo bar, and sub frame connectors with a crossover bar.

Tie the subframes and add the torque boxes. If it's really making 600hp the uni-body isn't going to like it. Upgrade the brakes too. Once you're going, you gotta stop.

Why not a 347/363 based on a 302? Could be just as much fun and easier to do.
