I have bought a quite cheap 351C 4V from 1973 and now I started to break down the Engine and reduild it.
For this I wanted to use my 600cfm Summit carburetor.
But I know that I'll need an appropriate carburetor bridge.
In addition to that I have planed to build in a another camshaft.
Everything else is still original and not needed to be changed.

I actually just want to have the car for everyday use and normal street driving. Its alright to have quite a bit power but there should still be torque.
Therefore my question here is which suction bridge and camshaft can you recommend?

Greetings from Germany

My Car is a 1971 Mustang Convertible with a 2V (in a very bad condition) and a C6 and Iron Outtake Manifolds.
I bought this other Engine to be changed, when it's finished.
This engine is from 1973 with 4V-Heads.
It has open Chambers and the same small Valves than the 2V.
D2AE-CA (3E17) with 4bolt.
I want to use the 600cfm Summit-Caburator from my other Engine (or I have a 1406 600cfm Edelbrock...but I Think the Summit-Carb will be the better one!??).
Sorry for my bad english.

Christian :)

Your English is fine. I had to think about what a "suction bridge" was for a second, but I think I got it. :)

A Blue Thunder or Performer RPM intake would work very well. If you're wanting to keep it budget oriented, a custom hydraulic flat tappet camshaft could be made to give you a bump in horsepower, as well as keep vacuum for brakes, and take more advantage of the 4V heads.

You need to focus more on torque.

I'll agree with the blue thunder intake manifold, as long as it works with hood clearance. What hood does your mustang have? I also agree with the custom hydraulic roller camshaft and would recommend going through Brent to get all of the associated parts for the conversion.

A hydraulic roller wouldn't require a break-in, but the list of parts that would need changed would grow: cam, lifters, pushrods, etc.

What do you think about Offenhauser 5964??? The Blue Thunder is a little bit to expensive and not available at Summit-Racing.
Or would you rather recommend the Edelbrock RPM Performer? (7654?)

And the Camshaft...I would tend to use a hydraulik flat trapped cam actually.
But I have no idea how to choose the right one. Can you guys tell me what aspects I have to look for, to make the right choice?

The Edelbrock would be the better intake.

I can have a custom hydraulic flat tappet camshaft for you. They are $199 and it would be matched to the car and to the engine.
