Good thing you left this for this group, the FE forum would fill a book..

FE is for Ford/Edsel, which is what cars the engine was originally available in, but of course, there are other thoughts. If you have some time, check out the FE engine forum and search for this topic.

Welcome aboard! --Mike

i dont know much about fe s ,but i have what i believe is a 390 .its going in a 88 mustang lx.and i was wondering what can i do to it ,without boring[or any machine work] .and get the most horse and torque on pump gas.maybe a 428 crank,or a 460 crank,i dont know if a 460 crank will fit it..head change maybe.i dont wanna use any aftermarket parts,because parts are easy to come by.and i am on a budget right now.thank you so much

The 390 is a great motor. But on a budget, IMO you will be way better off building a 5.0 for that mustang. Get a good roller short block, E7 heads (all dime a dozen at pull-n-save) and you are off to the races.

460 is a different engine family (no interchange) A 428 crank is a good way to go, but not common and expen$ive.

If you are not sure you have a 390, don't be surpised to find you have a 352 or a 360. There is no good way to tell without pulling the heads.

This sure is an old thread.

That 390 is going to be a BRICK in that fox body. Like bigperm said, 5.0 is much better solution! They are so cheap on craigslist

Plus FE parts are really expensive.

If you licve in the front range you'll never get a FE in a 88 Mustang to pass the emisions test. The engine must be the same year or newer
