Windsor

the GT40 heads are Ford's equivalent to Vortec- cheap and easy power. Stroker kits aren't that mush more costly compared to chevy if you want to go that route. If you want something to show off at a fairly reasonable price I'd get the gt40's and get them worked over, stroke it out to a 400, get a nice fat solid cam (high 280's) a decent valve train (roller tips and good springs- maybe new pushrods), MSD high out put ignition, 1 5/8 long tube headers, and a Torker II intake topped with a Demon carb.

It'll cost a little under 5 G's which isn't super cheap, but it's definitely a tire burner.
