Just finished building a 347 stroker for my Capri bracket car to replace the 351 Cleveland that I have been racing in several different configurations for the past 23 years. Just started it for a short time to set the timing and see if therre were any issues that needed immediate attention. The next day I did the obligatory 20 minute break in cycle at 2500 rpm and varying the rpms.
85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Out (Stumble) 3rd run
First time out for new engine. Had a very bad stumble off the line. Found
out later that my MSD 7AL2 was pulling 10 degrees of timing out between
3,000 and 4,000 RPM's. So I was leaving the line with only 24 degrees of
timing!! No wonder the car was falling flat on it's face!! Despite dismal
60 foot times in the 1.80's, the car was still running 7.0's in the 1/8
mile at 97 MPH. That was short shifting at only 6,000 RPM's. My goal of
6.60's in the 1/8 with this new engine should be easily realized after it
gets sorted out

First half of product familiarization video for sales personnel for the
newly-introduced 1991 Mercury Capri. Great background for Capri fans (I had
a '94). Based on this video, you'd think the Capri would have sold much
Judge the video from a 90s perspective, not today's. Ohhh, the 90s. So much
color, so much hope, so much fun... :)

Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8
and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear.
This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans,
so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from
the States to save it from the recyclers yard. Sweet vintage aluminum slot
mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in
classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!
