Re: 302 windsor info

Well there's noithing wrong with the 302 that's for sure,
HP,depend's on whether it's stock,rebuilt and what sort of goodie's the previous owner used,klm's traveled,
once again fuel economy will vary with the above mentioned,
reliability, good, just get someone you can trust to rebuild it to your need's not their's,but if it's in piece's and has been for a while, a fresh rebuild would be on the card's.

^ Yep.
And make sure you check out the piston skirts before you put it together, they are know to break them pretty often.

Re: 302 windsor info

Funny should bring up the 302 in to an XF. I'm giving it some thought at the moment as I'm fed up with the 250 in my XF ute. It had Hurricane extractors and when I replaced the 2" with a 2 1/2" the exhaust cowboy flogged it so hard he went through about 15 litres in 10 kays, bent and threw a rod, I think he's cracked the head gasket and ****ed one of the rockers I reckon one of the springs has gone as well - all cylinder 5. I'm thinking with all the playing around I'll have to do it might be easier to drop a 302 in. How much work are you looking at to fit it to an 87 ute with a 3sp colum shift auto?

Re: 302 windsor info

i heard the 302 boss motors have cleveland heads and windsor blocks is this true? and the person who told me said its the best of both worlds i know why thats so with the cleveland head cus the larger ports lets the motor breathe givin more power and rev's but i have no idea whats superior about the windsor block does anyone else know?

and originally we were thinkin of puttin the 302 in a cortina we're also thinkin about a capri of some sort theres on in town that looks awesome like a old GT or somethin king like that (Y)
