Should I stroke my 289 in my 66 falcon, or should I go for a turbo kit. I'm looking for reliability as well as performance, it's my daily driver.

I'd keep NA in the 66 if it were mine.

Depends what power you want from it and whether you are going the whole hog in strengthening the box ( or upgrading ), same with the diff ,etc.

I'd give it a warming over with a cam and better heads and being a windsor there are plenty of performance parts out there to suit. Maybe a 330ci stroker?
