Thanks man. The next project will be a 64 Galaxie tear drop hood. I think it would be pretty killer in carbon fiber.

That would be badass! I'd be in the market for sure. I'm not super happy with my fiberglass one.

Did you have a Crites fiberglass hood? I have a trunk from them. I am pretty happy with the quality and fit but it could be significantly lighter.

Yeah, it's a Crites. The actual panel itself looks great on the car, and the gaps everywhere line up very well, but I was disappointed with the work I had to do to the factory hinges to get the hood to fit properly. I will say, it's the first fiberglass piece that I've ever used on a car, so maybe my expectations should've been different.

Following!

How much HP are you wanting if you decide EcoBoost?

I have done a couple 3.5 Swaps and have a complete donor 2.7 I will most likely drop in one of my '66 F100's.

Eco1 a bone stock from intake to exhaust tune only made 420/532 @ tire
532 lb ft at under 3000 rpm.

Eco2 with just a "slight" turbo upgrade should make 480-500 RWHP

What amazed me especially on the first one (buying a donor) was the engine was nearly free for a 6400 mile used engine.

3250.00 for complete truck and sold well over 1000.00 in parts.

If one wants 1000 HP is not out of question. (better rods n pistons needed over 500 rwhp)

Parts for the engines are beyond cheap. A NEW Steel Crankshaft good for 1000 hp is under 100.00! I thought that was a price mistake so actually ordered one. Connecting rods were 11.00 each.

Would love to see you go 3.5 Eco as 500 RWHP and 600 TQ in that falcon would be unreal.

Great Project!

Many many years ago my brother built a '61 Falcon with a 390 I was 13 and he was 15. Such a cool year. (1970)

I am not planning any engine mods other than a tune for my 3.5 EB swap. My power goals are modest and would be happy with 400hp 450 ftlbs. I figure should make my 2800-2900lb car run pretty good.

I was sold on the EB engine after seeing what wheel horsepower a bone stock F150 rental truck made on the Holley Chassis dyno.

At this point I'm looking at the 2.3 ecoboost. Mostly from a weight savings perspective. I haven't been able to find a published weight of a 2.3. A Ford Motorsports rep said the 2.3 is 247 lbs. I'm not sure that is correct, 347 lbs is more believable. My goal is to have the Falcon weigh half of what the (4000 lb) Galaxie weights. I feel 300 hp would move that along pretty well for auto-x or a short road course.

Ecoboost weights (DRY)
V6 3.5: 449 lbs (203 kg)
V6 2.7: 440 lbs (200 kg)
I4 2.0: 328 lbs(149 kg)
I4 1.6: 251 lbs (114 kg)
