Classic inlines has the best selection for Ford I6 hop up parts.. Mike ( the owner ) is working on an aluminum 240/300 6cyl head, probably see them sometime around august for sale. he arleady has had an aluminum 200-250 cyl head produced for over a year now... Clifford performance can only dream of Mikes selection.

www.classicinlines.com Mike is a stand up guy also, if your dealing with that company, your dealing with him personally.. I'v spent over $2,500 at 1 time from his company, and I'd spend another $2,500 if I was doing another 6

On clifford 6-8 theres a thing called a triple drought intake. I know the carrberater sets on the engine and it sucks fuel and air into the cylinder. but that triple drought intake is got some like miniture cylinder like things on it, and how does this thing work

what you are seeing is a assembled side draft manifold.. the manifold is sold without carbs. you need 3 Webber DCOE carbs, linkage and 1 of there headders to make it work.. a single 4bbl won't look as cool, but it's not going to cost you $1,000 to put on ither.. the side drafts really arn't good for a truck application IMO.

I live in Prattsville Ny... I havn't sold the Falcon yet, but you'll have to PM me for details to comply with forum rules.

the side draft carburators mix the gas and air, just as any normal carb works

just the head is probably a 10-20% gain.. 37cc chambers means the compression might become too high for pump gas ( IIRC the stock head is around 60cc ) . you would need a set of pistions with a large dish, and it could throw quench and squish off. assuming 60cc chamber is stock.. you would need to add 38cc of volume in the pistion to maintain stock compression... you could put the pistions .050 in the hole using custom pistions with a stock dish ( 10cc ) and that would bump 20cc but it would be all kinds of screwy doing that, and it wouldn't run very good

Factory 300 I6 compression has always been above 8:1.. '71 or older and your looking at 9:1 or so, and '80 or newer and it is likely 8.5:1... cutting compression was the way to de smog cars in the 70's. better cats and emission devices came in the 80's and comp ratios were increased again
