Question Your top 5 Ford engines

After reading the other thread here is another question. What are your top 5 Ford favourite engines?

Mine in order:

1. Ford 2.0 Cosworth Turbo - up to 600BHP from 2.0 litres!!
2. Ford 351 Windsor / Clevo - best sounding Aussie V8 out there by miles - goes hard too!
3. Ford Barra 240T - best Aussie 6 ever made!
4. BOSS 290 - has the potential to be GOD of aussie engines
5. BOSS 260 - high technology quad cam beast

I will leave out the Motors that I have not driven.

1. 351 Cleveland. 4v Heads, Edelbrock Torker inlet manifold, 650 double pumper, Crow Cam, Hi-comp pistons, single 3 inch exhaust. Oh, the memories!!

2. 302 Windsor. You just can't kill these bad boys. Just ask Gary Myers.

3. Barra 182. So smooth and powerful. Can't wait to drive the Turbo.

4. Windsor 5L 220kw. Feel the grunt of the Old School POWER!!

5. 4.0L Straight Six. 425,000ks, and it still does not have any problems.
