All the favouritism aside here, is there anyone well rounded enough to appreciate, understand and know all the proís and conís of each engine. If I were looking to build either of the three why should I go for that particular one? Were talking Street, Mild applications, nothing wild but not a dead stocker. I know a lot of guyís are going to say mix the two ford engines and create a Boss motor but while they are a fantastic engine there main power out put is way up in the rev range. Any thoughts would be of interest. 350 and 351 Ci
Chev could be cheaper to build as they are very popular and have been around for donkey's years. Windsor I think would be the lightest motor, important if doing a V8 conversion in some smaller cars. Clevo are big and heavy but are a great motor as well (XY GTHO was no slouch).
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
Falchoon has hit the nail on the head there. The bang for your buck award would have to go to the SB chev. The MASSIVE market for SB chev performence parts in the US gives you heaps of choice, and brings the prices down heaps.
SB Chev is horsepower for $ hero. However, the Windsor is a close second with absolutely anything you can think of available. Take a surf on www.summitracing.com and feel the eyes glaze over. If it's anything like what happened to me before you know it there's a consignment at the airport waiting including alloy heads, cam, rollers, etc etc.
