TotM: 351W Build-Up
This Topic-of-the-Month thing is something I'm gonna start up to try to bring out some of your ideas on how you'd build an engine. There are lots of guys who have the knowledge of rebuilding engines and resources to do so, but don't realize how much more performance they can get out of their Windsors because they simply haven't heard different ideas on how people would do things. So, here's the debut of the Topic-of-the-Month:
Here's what you're doing:
You're looking to build a naturally-aspirated, carbureted, 351W. Tell me how you'd build it (forged/cast; stroked/bored/stock; high compression/low compression; high-RPM runner/low-RPM puller; etc) and tell me why. Now, try to keep it reasonable. Let's try to keep the builds within budget, so that real ideas can be passed around that people can actually use when rebuilding their motors.
Remember: I know this has the potential to turn into a big battle. We're all big boys and girls here, so let's act like it. No bashing on others for their ideas. We're here to exchange our ideas and experiences so we can all improve our mechanical intuitions and learn new theories on getting the best performance out of our Windsors.
That said, let's hear what you'd do!!
