mmm boss motor... why not have the best of both worlds?? how ever i personally dont like clevos much they are way to heavy and a 302 clevo is wrong they should never have bothered even making it. just a nice worked 351 windsor would do me fine.
The 351 Windsor can be stroked to 427+ with extra $$$..And with bassically bolt on's..
While the Clevo you're relying on someones labour and tech skills with porting
assembling correct components..Btw thats with all engines...W is more plug and play to a point...Trouble is there isn't that many 351 W's ...
So the main difference on the Windsor is actually the physical size and mass. I always like a nice light motor, hate too much weight up front. But for Performance Reasons why didn't Ford US stick with the clevo? Or more importantly Why didn't Ford Aus import the 351 Windsor aswell as the 302?
Ford dropped the Cleveland like a hot potatoe because of the false and misleadind so called energy crisis back in 72.
Oz didn't bother importing the Windsor because we began manufacturing the Cleveland and there was no point as the Cleveland was a considerably better engine.
When was the last 351 Windsor made? Saleen used them up to 1999 or something, but were they engines that had been sitting around for a while? I don't know when they stopped building what but I just thought if they decided to import the 302 back in 91, couldn't they have imported the 351 Windsor then too. I also never knew they built clevos in aus. Did they cast the block here and everything? Kind of doesnt make it a clevo if it wasn't built in Cleveland Ohio eh? Where did they build it at the engine plant in Geelong? Should be called the GEELONG!
