stock 289v8 upgrades

Just looking for some ideas for upgrades. I've got about $2000 for engine upgrages. Looking @ the edelbrock rpm power package. Anyone running this? Wondering what type of headers to run? Looking at Ceramic Tri-y Headers from MustangsUnlimited.com. I already have the mufflers. Dual (40 oringial series flowmaster 2.5"). Which carberator to run Holly Advenger or Edelbrock. Which cam to run? Which intake to run? Looking for 300-400Hp This car will be a daily driver. Sorry about the ramdom thoughts. Thanks for the help.

Re: stock 289v8 upgrades

2000 should get you some nice aluminum heads and intake.

wouldn't mess with the rest till the next batch of money comes along

BTW, i'd check on the general condition of the motor before adding any go-fast parts.

Re: stock 289v8 upgrades

id go with the 570 if it were me cause enless u really put some hp under the hood i wouldnt put a huge carb on there. i like my 600 holley i have now for my daily driver it gives it some spunk for not having no aftermarket parts on it but its ur call on what to use thats just my opinion

Re: stock 289v8 upgrades

I agree with gearbanger, A 670 on a mild 289 is enough to wash the rings out.

Re: stock 289v8 upgrades

I would get a 302 or 351 and leave the 289 on the shelf it would suck to crack your block as 289s are not that common anymore nor cheap.

Re: stock 289v8 upgrades

a 289 block and a 302 block are pretty much the same, if you hosed up the block you could find a 302 block to replace it with and the only person to know the difference would be you.
