  2. Classic Cougar Tech
    After several hours of internet searching, I thought I'd ask the collective wisdom of the forum :-) I purchased my Cougar with a Ford Racing chromed dress-up kit already fitted. This has not weathered very well (cheap chrome?) and so I'm planning to replace it as part of a general tidy-up of...
  3. High Performance
    I just recently picked up a base 67 Cougar. It's in very nice cosmetic condition so I want to up grade the engine. It's got the usual Ford 289 in it. Only piece aftermarket is the Flowmaster dual exhaust with an x pipe. I'm looking to up it's performance a bit. I'm looking at getting an intake...

    Would like to poll the Cougar community. I have a '67 Cougar XR-7 GT 4-speed manual. Unfortunately, a previous owner had long ago replaced the original 390 with a 289 so it's no longer a # matching car. Supposedly, the previous owner was a Ford mechanic, and preferred the lighter (and slightly...

    I have an engine in my XR7 that I am not sure what it is. The VIN points to a Engine Model (H) which I believe would mean a 351C 2V. I go out and buy a Edelbrock intake manifold and a Holly carb as the old one is stuffed and find the manifold is too small by about one and a half inches. I...

    Ok when I bought my 67 XR7 it had a 2V set up on it. Which it still has. My vin says it is supposed to be an A code 4V engine. Question is, is there any other difference in the engine of a 2V and 4V other than the intake manifold and the Carb? I want to get it back to a 4V setup. Is there...

    I was at the pic a part today and saw a 1960 Thunderbird with the original engine still in it. I heard that those engines are 300 hp (2 barrel)- 360hp (4 barrel) 352 FE Now if I'm correct this engine is a gem and I'm going to get it tomorrow!! It's 4 barrel, and its a 1960, the year that ford...

    Hey guys, a dude just called me up today asking if I wanted to buy a 1967 Ford LTD from him, from what I remember, I think they have the vaunted 390 from the presmog days, is there any chance they put another engine in the LTD or is it the 390 or 427? I mean 300 HP from the factory sounds good...

    Is there any major differences between a 60's 302 and a more modern 5.0 mustang 302? More specifically, the overall strength of the block (Nickel to cast Iron content). I'm building an engine and would like to know what the best foundation would be for my supercharging efforts...

    I've been doing some research on supercharging my engine with a eaton m90 set up seen in this video What do I need to do to my engine to lower my compression ratio? Do superchargers have to be fuel injected or can you run a bigger carb?
