I'll send you some information more tomorrow when I have my build book on hand. I plan to do a 331 stroker as well. You should ask more what kind of money your willing to put down.

If price isn't an issue get the kit from ford performance solutions. It's a $3,200 kit it's full race and can handle 850hp. It's one of the best out there.

To get the full benefit yes. I would recommend a dual plane intake manifold (which would create low end torque) for a street machine. For anything else would really depend on your preference of cast and price.

If your gonna go with AFR heads with a 331 stroker I'd go with AFR 205 or 225 heads with Holley SystemMax intake with a good cam!!!

Bump the AFR heads for the size I'll look some up depending on the kit you get. Now with a cam just would depend if you want to add a power adder of some sort.

That's a good intake to consider, but it just would depend on the use of the car if it would be a daily driver then I would say yes. Just have to consider what you would want the car for in a RPM stand point that is... For a high review engine then consider the edelbrock, Holley, and trick flow intakes as well.

P.S when I mention the dual plan intake manifold I thought you were going carbed. So discard that though sorry.

You just need to search for what fits your driving style and needs. Personally I wouldn't go with the bbk (it's a really good intake but not for what I would need)

I'm not sure who's more or less confused in this thread, but I think I must be he who's confused...

You're looking for 500hp, but not a race build? Okay, for starters, a standard(A50) block is NOT a good choice for anyone looking to make 500hp, particularly in the form of an N/A drive capable Mustang. Using a blower or turbo, still not a good idea. Possible, but the block won't necessarily last... unless you have a Dart or Ford racing block.

Think lower, like 400hp. Then maybe the surprise you get will be a good one.

AFR heads are GREAT! Using 205 or 225's on a 331 which isn't a pure race build, however... Overkill. 185's will do just fine for every bit of 500hp. For example: Air Flow Research

As for the stroker kit itself, you can nearly take your pick as long as you choose FORGED components.

Yes it can I know guys running singles, but they all now have upgraded to a better block.

Also depends on the driver. I would be safe and get a better upgrade

A turbo may not be a bad idea honestly. Theres a guy on here that hit 300whp/400tq with an on3 turbo kit and a completely stock block (running 8.5psi). With a HCI top end kit on top of that, I would assume 400hp would be easy to achieve. However, the block may not last too long at those levels without a few strengthening mods. The Turbo/SC sticky thread has more info on how to prep a block for boost

Re: 331 stroker

Turbo in the future? Well there goes the idea of 500 N/A from a stock block.

You can do either, but not both at the same time. The stock block won't likely last long either way. You'll need lower compression pistons with the turbo than the N/A build for that power level. Going turbo will certainly help remove all "daily driver" issues. At least install a girdle. If you do, a stock block has a chance, even with a 331 kit. Maybe consider a 327 instead, leaving some material in the cylinder walls.

Not to tell ya what to do, but as a guy who's been working with Fox Mustangs for 2 over decades, I suggest you decide the direction you wanna go. That is, N/A, turbo, supercharger, or nitrous. From that point, contact a builder you trust if only to get a better handle how to make it happen.

I think you would better off saving for a boss 302 block.
