Thumbs up 250 2v

I have a 1972 XA Fairmont with 93000 original miles on the clock. It has a 250 pre crossflow engine in it. I want to put on a 2V head because i heard these heads are really good. Does anyone think a 250 pre crossflow with a 350 Holley, 2V head, Crow cam, extractors and exhaust will go hard enough for a P plate car? Will the 2V head bolt straight onto my engine?

Re: 250 2v

Mate,the 2V (if you can find one)will bolt on your 250,and these head's built properly go better than a near stock 302,I think it will go hard enough for your P's,let me know how you go, because I am putting a 2V head on my 221,cheer's.

Re: 250 2v

Well depend's on how good the exhaust place is, I once heard an XB coupe that sounded so lumpy and nice I thought, that V8 is so nice, only to find out that it actually was a 250, It sounded so much like a V8,mind you it was very lumby,
so yes You can get a very nice note from them,just do your homework and try and find someone who has a nice setup on their 250,but the right exhaust is one off the best thing's you can do.

Thumbs up Re: 250 2V

How muck kW do you think a 250 2V would be with a 350 Holley, Crow cam, extractors and exhaust be? Would my XA with this combo keep up with a 253 in a Commodore?

mate i have an xp with a 250 2v, im still deciding whether to finish my 302 windsor build, i love the 2v too much. its a 250 40thou over, cam has 498thou lift, head has been ported and combustion chambers cleaned up, accel coil, twin point distributor, hi-volume oil pump, 600dp 4 barrell holley. gearbox is a celica 4speed (unbreakable) chrysler centura diff, xd lsd centre and vl gears.
The exhaust note is very deep,i have extractors, then 3" exhaust into muffler and 3"mandrel over the diff. i also have a plate that unbolts after the muffler to dump directly on the ground.

Re: 250 2V

Will a 350 Holley bolt straight onto the standard manifold or will i need to get an adaptor for it?

Thumbs up Re: 250 2V

Do you think this would be a good P plate engine in an XA Fairmont?
250 2V - 350 Holley
Ported & polished 2V head
Crow cam
Extractors
Exhaust
Would a stock bottom end be strong enough to cope with all this?
