Re: Where's the power in the windsor?

If I had a camera I would get some pics
I used custop chevy pistons (KB) that require finishing off (I think they were 1.1" hieght pins), to get the require hieght and a bit of machining around the skirts to clear the counterwieghts, the rods are 350chev eagle Items that are stronger and lighter than standard ford items.
The ring pack is a little tight and it rattles like crap when it is cold.
The inlet is custom made using Throttles from CA18 nissans (about 55mm but by the time you take out the diametre of the throttle plates area is equal to a 50mm throttle). It uses 16 injectors - 8 at the entry to the heads for economy and 8 at the throttle oppenings for power.
I have the runners at 10" long from the face of the head but I am still playing around with that.
