302 Capri with gt40-P Heads

Hi Guys,

I have a Capri Perana wit a carby 302 windsor in it, I have ordered a new 95 mustang 302 tall motor to bolt into it(arriving this week) and this new motor has gt40-p heads, my question is , Are the Extractors likely to bolt up to the new gt40 heads, I know the plugs may not fit in, but i just want to see if a new set of 302 block huggers will fit or if i have to go completly custom extractors

Oh yeah, nearly forgot, the heads will be reverted back to carby not efi



Have you driven a Ford....lateley?

Re: 302 Capri with gt40-P Heads

They will bolt up, but they might not clear the spark plugs or allow you to change spark plugs without removing the extractors first. Have a look at the extractors, basically the spark plugs come out right beside and just underneath the primaries, and come out at a very slight 10-20 degree angle, whereas the old heads had the spark plugs further away from the primaries and at a greater 30-40 degree angle.
