1987 ford 302 sefi to carb and beyond

i am building a 1987 5.0L originally a SEFI engine. sometimes i get bored and decide to try to make more power. fuel injection systems are just versatile enough for me. So no more injection. I bolted on after port matching a performer rpm manifold topped with a hp series 750.after down jetting i down jetted some more.. i wanted roller rockers wow what an ordeal this .OEM is fulcrum style so adapter kit had to go in. i had pushrods made to fit oem were way to long. some beehive springs seatload 123 lbs 1.75 open 284lbs 1.75 long story short big springs for the big cam i decided to have ground for this thing IN.574 EX.569 lobe seperation 108.. timing gears instead of chain . Msd ignition package . the rest of motor is stock at the time 140 k installed 3.73 rearend. fun fun lasted about a month to many high revs and hammered bearings.
TEARDOWN AGAIN
now i am considering different stroker kits there are many all claiming diff horse power up to 600hp but hers the question i have. i was at a swap meet and found a super victor intake for a 302 hmmm had to have it .got home and set some head gaskets on my bare block set the heads down and tightened a couple bolts so they dont fall and go to set the intake down and it doesnt fit. web sites say i need windsor heads .i cant seem to find any dimensions on the windsor heads. i could just but some windsor heads but i dont want to i have lots of $ tied up in these stock iron ones and i am sure i can cut bigger valves in along with some dremel time for porting all stuff i can do in my garage. i have a 1973 ford 302 out of a torino stock heads i did a quick measure and looks like the manifold will fit into those heads.. does any one out there know ford small block

thanks for link i checked out the site some very interesting stuff there only to post i have to wait 24-48 hours before sign in is approved... in the mean while i have found lot of people talking about the windsor heads vs 302. head dimensions are the same. 351 intake will not fit on 302 even with 351 heads because block is wider. however this super victor intake was made for 289-302 block. my block is a 1987 1/2 302 5.0L mustang engine this engine was EFI, not any more performer RPM fits right on no prob. are my heads cast different because of the fuel injection

If you have the E7 heads you can do some work on them yourself,there is a lot of cylinder head info at www.fordmuscle.com as well as test results.Or this route:http://www.kmjent.com/cart/product.p...&cat=17&page=1 they will be a big improvement over stock iron heads by a bunch, they are wallet friendly unless you hit the lottery and go for Trick-Flows or AFR's.
