Windsor 302

Hey Guys..

Are the 1992 Windsor 302's any good? I mean was it worth buying the XR8 instead of the VP SS hehe.

In the future when I get more money, I want to spend more doing the car up, but I want to be sure I have a good base to start from, so wanted a bit of info on if the Windsor 302 is any good :)

Thanks guys.

Are the XG intakes the same as the EB? And if you don't mind what exactly did you do to the intake and plenum?

Ok as you know the 302 inlet is very restrictive and the only way to fix this is with a die grinder and a selection of burs and about 16 hours of grinding of the manifold runners , plenum runners , plenum inlet and T/B ,This manifold mod works very well from 3000 rpm up
This would flow better if you could pick up a 65mm or 70mm T/B . I connected a vacume gauge to the plenum and run it up on the dyno and found on full throttle at about 5000 rpm it was pulling about 2 in vacume which means the motor is trying to pull more air than the T/B allows , also I forgot to mention we also fitted a bigger AFM .
