Building a poised but potent Ford small-block to swap into an early Mustang was the primary goal of this 428ci engine project. A couple of optional side duties were also factored into the early discussions, such as serving as an EngineLabs dyno mule for testing new hydraulic roller cams to higher-than-usual rev numbers. Durability, then, had to be a major consideration in addition to snappy street performance, intimidating appearance and reasonable cost.
