Re: Where's the power in the windsor?
Guys these engines have 4" bore and 3" To make serious power they need to REV! To rev they need GOOD induction [I don't mean au inlets either] Unfortunatly the std Ford induction starts runing out of cfm around 4000 rpm.Just where these engines with the bore / stroke ratio start making power..The piston speed with a Windsor at 5000 rpm would be less than a 4 ltr at 4000 rpm due to the longer stroke of the six...
You can't have power to 6000 rpm without losing some tractability down low..
Though forced induction changes that to a point.....
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
