Ford 289 Drag Racing Engine. Who Makes one?


Recommended Posts

Looking to build a 289 engine using the Moebius Mercury Comet Cyclone kit.

It has an outstanding 289, but it is stock only.

I'm Looking for parts to make it either Blown or Fuel Injected.

I know the AMT Shelby Cobra has Weber Carbs, and the '65 Mustang has a Cross Ram Manifold, but are there any better options for a Full Race Dragster Motor? I can't think of any.

As the 289 and 302 (except Boss) pretty much are the same you can look for parts for a 302.
I can't remember right now if I have seen anything like you are looking for but the Weber intake manifold can be converted to fuel injection with some injector stacks and a few modifications.
But I believe the Ford racers prefered to use the larger more powerful FE instead of the small block for racing in the "heavier" classes and I don't think I have seen many blown 289's except for Paxtons back in the day.
