It seems to me that those who NEED a date-correct non-numbers matching engine is a pretty small group.

Better performance can be had more cheaply.
While I agree better performance can be had, there are those looking beyond performance with seeking originality.

Or distributor, or alt pulley.

Seems over priced if it's that incomplete. Though the heads can go for 3-5k alone.
Technically is says nothing of:
cam
lifters
valve covers
timing cover
water pump
fuel pump
oil pump
pan
carb

It would get you most of the way there to build a K engine but leave you a few bits short. :)

If any of us are after "better performance" then we should immediately stop wasting our time with 50+ year old mustangs :)
Revology would disagree…

Why would you want a Hi-Po engine unless you have a "K" included in your vin? When I bought my car the badging had high performance on the intake and fenders but it's an "A" code car. My 225 horses gets me down the road just as well as the very expensive 275 horses would.
