This has been covered many times over, search for more info. Also check out classic inlines and clifford performance, they are great companies with even better info.

Wow, there is so much more available now then there was back when I was trying to get more power out of I6s.

Back then about all we could do was mill the head, balance, cam, dual exhaust and a Webber 2v. One the more wild side we modified a head to bolt on 3 webber side drafts.

Ended up with a car which could beat almost anyone out of the hole from 0 to 35 but overall sucked on the quarter.

Dual headers, 2" GT exhaust, GT springs, 1" front sway bar, Arning/Shelby drop, T5 5-speed. All of this will just about bolt in.

I would think there are a lot of 3-4 liter, aluminum, EFI, V6s out there with overdrive transmissions. More power, more economy, and lighter weight for better handling and acceleration.

Not an engine mod... but rear gear change could give it more snap.

Looks like an Australian Barra 6 cyl engine. These are available tubo'd or non turbo'd in the Australian made Falcons. The turbo is quicker than the 5.4 v8 off the line ( for a moment anyway). The Australian 250 2v head off an early to mid 70's Falcon would be a neat mod for Mustang 200 but I imagine finding one in the States would be hard and probably expensive,it has a stand alone inlet manifold.

There is a brand new aluminum head out of Aussie as we speak.
