Refreshing the 408w Mustang Engine – Part 1

A new YouTube episode is up covering the assembly of our 408w engine for the AutoXandTrack 1967 road race Mustang! We turn the short block machined by HPS Performance into a complete engine ready for installation.

Originally, we planned to cover the assembly and installing into the car in a single video. However, despite editing the video way down we are breaking it into multiple parts. Installation into the Mustang and first start will be covered in part 2!

I am trying something new with a longer form vlog style video. Please let me know what you guys think!
