Anyone out there run a Ford windsor with cleavland heads?

Who is the best people to talk to?

What are the best parts to run?

Must run cast iron intake and cast iron exhaust manifolds. No roller rockers, roller tips are allowed though.

Thanks for your help,
Chris Prince

It's alot of work, you need special pistons, a special intake manifiold (made by only one source). I'm not convinced it's worth the effort. It would be much simpler to just run the cleavland engine if it's allowed at your track

Call Tim at 618-896-5653 he has run this combination and might even be able to fix you up with parts and etc. you need. We are running an engine built by Tim with this combination but we have alum. intake and headers. Haven't seen anything yet that we feel makes as much power and torque.

IF TIM, HIS POPS,OR DON CAN'T HELP YOU , SOMEONE THAT DOES A LOT OF THEM IS MIDWEST MOTORSPORTS/KANSAS CITY, NOT THE ONE IN IOWA. THEY HAVE MANY PARTS AVAILABLE AT A VERY RESONABLE PRICES. I SEEN A DYNO SHEET ON ONE THAT WAS A "CHEAPIE" AND IT MADE 488HP. AND 465FT/LB. OT TORQUE. THAT WAS A FLATTOP PISTON,2V 400 HEADS, AND A B&A INTAKE. PRETTY IMPRESSIVE!!!. THE 3.8 STROKE SCAT CRANK COMBO MAKE ABOUT 500HP WITH 560FT./LB OF TORQUE. DON'T USE THE CLEVELAND, IT WILL BREAK THE CYL. WALLS IF YOU MAKE MUCH H.P.
