I suspect the 289 heads would really choke out a 347. If all that was done to the engine it seems like a lot of work just to put those heads on it. Put a good set on that stroker block and that would be fun.

Dont expect that car to make anywhere past 325rwhp.

On a side note, how much are you looking to spend? My 347 Cobra is still for sale!

Sounds like a car that the people to building on and then got in a hurry.
Agree with Adder on the power.
Needs to have some good heads and a modern cam.
Not real wild about the Eddy carb either.

Yea, the carb thing. 750 is way, way to big for a 347ci.
With all that stroke, I would have used gt40p's on a budget. Alloys in a perfect world. Topped with a Weiand Accelerator & 650cfm 4150 ultra Combo.
