    You could make a 347, but not a 331. Ford has a new 347 crate engine that has the 5.4" rods that you need, but no 3.25" stroke crank. The pistons from the 347 crate engine will not have a tall enough compression height, so no luck.

    If you can get the crate motor for 1/2 off, that's a good deal because they sell for about $2500. $1250 would barely cover the rotating assembly and machine work to make a 331, and you get all of the other pieces also.

    I think they have 347's in some australian falcons, but nothing in the states.

    It's a crate engine, you buy it to put in your hot rod, or whatever car normally has a 302.

    Do you get 50% off FRPP parts? If so, you should pick up a FRPP catalog and decide from there.

    I don't believe there is any way to make a stroker from stock parts. You could buy the parts to install a 351 though. :D

    I think all of the pieces I mentioned are FRPP (ford racing performance parts). If you can't get a deal on them, I don't think you will find anything good because all of the 5.0 and Lightning oem performance parts have been discontinued, or moved to FRPP.

    You might be able to make a 318, that's an offset ground 302 crank with modified 2.3 liter rods and chevy pistons. I don't think that is worth the effort any more because of all of the cheap 331 kits that drop right in.

    You could build a 393. That uses a 351 block, stock 351 rods, a stroker crank that you would have to find somewhere else, and stock 302 pistons. With parts from FRPP, you can install that in a mustang.

    Sorry, no one stop shopping, but not too bad.
