Want to put a new very powerful engine in a 67' Mustang. What would be the best and most powerful engine I could put in without doing a ton of fab work?

See what you think about these guys.  They build Race engines but also street engines.

Forget the fab work, the least expensive horsepower that fits and works reliably is right from Ford.  The 392 Stroker (based on the 351) has great torque and power but torque is what counts from stoplight to stoplight.
I did and use a TCI built C-4 with 3:55 gears.
It works great.

I agree with PeterDaPan - go with one of the many stroker crate engines, from 347 to 427. Your '67 will hold a big-block, so a 351W based engine will definitely fit.

I have a 67 fastback with a 351W.  It has a somewhat taller deck than a 302, so is an easy fit.  Great power with much less weight and obviously an easier fit than a big block.  You can really get good power with a good intake and carb.  Mine has a mild cam and a good electronic ignition.  Also have an non-electronic AOD with a lockup torque converter.  It is really fun to drive.  The rear end is geared pretty high but it still has good power.

a 460 stroked to 514 ! tons of low rpm power ! fits between the shock tower without any cutting ! need humongus rear tires ! C6 auto trans or toploader 4 speed a must to handle the power. or a 393w stroker with aluminum heads pumpin about 600 hp for street use !

Go with a light weight small block stroker motor based on a 302 that will just drop right in your car with room to spare. The weight savings over a bigger block will be like added horsepower and it will corner and handle better without all that extra front end weight too. I ran a .030 over 289 with a Coast Performance stroker kit in it that gave me 331 cubes... and it screamed. There are also stroker kits avialable for 289/302 small blocks that make 347 cubic inches. I went with the 331 because it would rev faster and higher than the 347. It was a mean street motor with good manners.
