“When I decided to rebuild my Mustang’s 260V8- the engine that predated the more famous 289 and 302 – I wanted an engine builder I could trust and someone with the expertise to deal with an engine for which parts are hard to find.
“I found both at M&W. Rather than simply building the highest-revving, highest-horsepower engine he could, Damian asked me about what I intended to use the car for and what I wanted out of the engine. The result is an engine with around 300hp (compared to the stock 160hp) with a lumpy big- block sound at idle but completely designed for cruising on the street or freeway.
“I achieved my goal of building an engine that looks like something Shelby might have built had he been involved with the 1964 1/2 Mustang, but it breathes and performs in a way engine builders could only of dreamed about nearly 50 years ago. I now have my matching-numbers engine back in my stock-looking, fully restored convertible. But when I open the bonnet – or the throttle – car guys instantly know there’s something special about my little 260. I couldn’t be happier with the advice and the results I got from M&W.”
