I had a maverick with a 200 6 which is the same motor that was in the mustang. I desperately wanted to hot rod that car. All I could ever afford was a set of split header duals and some chrome reverse rims with baby moon hub caps. It was my college car. Most everybody thought it was a V8 because of how it ran. The intake would have required the head to be machined so I never got up the money for it.

One of the wickedest cars I ever saw run was a Chevy 2 with a straight 6(235). It would pull the front wheels 2 feet off the ground. It would haul butt and various other parts of your anatomy. He street raced it in Dallas against all challengers and was seldom beat by anything out there. Of course that car had a modified head, solid lifters, he ran slicks on the street, had 5.14 gears and all manner of other work done. He ran a 3 speed manual with a floor shifter and a fairly big flywheel.

I would say to go to a solid cam and do the whole 9 yards with the head and high compression and make it into a haul asser but then I am a certified drag nut and would drag race my lawn mower if its all I had. How far you go with it is totally up to you.
