My new 1966 289 v8 project

Just posting pictures of my new project, a 1966 Ford Mustang with a 289 2 brl. What do you think should I keep it stock or restomod it?

If you don't have the original engine, then restomod. No point if its not COMPLETELY original in my opinion

Was thinking of dropping the period correct 289 that I have but in a modified version with more hp and with a 4 barrel instead of the 2 barrel it came with.

I was thinking a 302 as well. But a new one. With a magnum 6060 trans, huge brakes, full coil over suspension, lots of chassis stiffening and a interior swap with some hugger seats!
