Aw come on, its been at least a week since the last one.....Max Keith said:And please, lets not get in a debate about whether the M block is a good engine or not, I mearly brought it up for matters of identification.
The local motorheads I know (remember I work in a Ford engine factory) all favor either a 302 stroker or a 351W. The factory windsor had lousy heads, but the aftermarket Windsor heads are better than Clevelands, with less engine weight. They won't look at a 400 or a 460 unless it's for a truck, becuase of the weight.willowbilly3 said:The Clevlands were a good breathing engine but unless you live in Austrailia, I would forget them and go with the Windsor. The clevland blocks were all too thin to start with and now they have been around a while most will need bored out. Even a .030 bore is more than most of them can safely handle.
