Wrong, prostreet guys are running the Teskid block for a reason, they are far better for forced induction due to the nickel content than the Terminator block.

Do some research on what the prostreet guys are running when it comes to the 4.6 blocks, guys pushing over 900 hp are using the teskid block for a reason.

Not trying to be a jerk but I have experience with these engines and know what they are capable of.

SO true! Ran 14.1@101mph in limp mode. Tire spin, 1. 2. and 3rd gear, more show than go
Decent trap speed though, knowing the car is running way to rich, so rich it leaves a cloud of fuel when shifting gears. But that will be fixed soon as I just received my piggyback chip so the ecu can be programed.

Yea, the wind has been in our team here in Reykjavik and blown the ash straight to europe But unluckly the wind is supposed to turn around today, so it might be heading our way.

No the 302 and 351 are both Windsor motors.

The only one called "Windsor" is the 351 Windsor.

Both 302 and 351 were built in the Windsor engine plant so BOTH are Windsors! The 351 was called 351W because there was a 351C engine built in the Cleveland engine plant used during the same years. The 351M Modified engine came out after the Cleveland went away.

I did not know the (early like back in the Boss 302 days, but the Boss 302 was a HD block) early 302s were Windsor motors. I knew the 351 Windsor and also the 351 Cleveland were made. Never knew the 302 was a Windsor motor. Never heard of the 302 Windsor, but that does not mean it did not exist. Got info on it? I like knowing obscure facts like this.

There were also two 4.8 OHC engines. One was Romeo, and I forget the other name. But the other was was supposedly a beefier motor. Acccording to Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Magazine.

the 351 is just a 302 with the deck height increased. the 302 can be found in mostly mustangs, torinos, f150's they come in flat tappet and roller cam configuration, carb'd, single point injection or just injected. Easy to find and reliable, huge after-market; you could probably build a carb'd, flat tappet engine to 400 hp with heads, a 650cfm carb, an intake manifold and headers.

Probably a custom job.
more importantly what are you using for a rear diff? and how wide are your rubbers?
