If you've been following our '67 Fairlane project, you know we've been working on a fantastic drivetrain for the car. In a recent installment, we detailed the Coast High Performance 331ci stroker, an engine that features a forged-steel crank and Trick Flow Specialties' Twisted Wedge aluminum cylinder heads with 2.02-inch intake valves and 1.60 exhaust. Finally, the long block was topped off with the new Trick Flow upper and lower EFI intake manifolds. With a compression ratio of 10:1, along with a .500-inch lift cam and great induction, we're expecting around 350 hp at the flywheel. (Click Here For The 331ci Stroker Story)
Check out the buildup of our Lentech AOD four-speed automatic overdrive transmission (Click Here For The AOD Buildup Story). Lentech offers four versions of the AOD, but we chose the Street Terminator Lock Up unit because it will handle far more power than a stock AOD and still lock up in Overdrive for great freeway performance. You also might want to take a detailed look at the latest in rearend axle technology from Currie Enterprises (Click Here For The Curry Rearend Story). For our Fairlane, we'll be using the stout 9-inch featured in this article.
There's no argument that we have the finest available technology for our '67 Fairlane. Now we'll look to Windsor-Fox Performance Engineering to put it all together in expert fashion. We're into uncharted waters here, at least for us, because we've never attempted to put a fuel-injected stroker or an AOD into a '67 Fairlane. Once the main components are correctly situated, wiring and other engine systems can be approached in the standard fashion. When technical snags arise, as they inevitably will, it's good to know we have the Ford powertrain conversion experts from Windsor-Fox at our side.
