you could probably get a gilmer kit for them, but it'd mean converting all the accessories to V-belt drive, and changing the water pump to a standard rotation unit..... not worth the hassle IMO

If you want a sound like that, get a Pete Jackson drive for the cam.

Personally, I like my car not to be picked as a modified car. "No show, all go"

Yeah they sound tuff, but i think it would drive you nuts after a while, i think they're more suited a a Rod or Sunday cruiser.
You can cut the noise of them down by drilling small holes through the ribs though.

No never used one personally, thought about it for the XD a long time ago... I know guys who have had them though.

The noise does drive you nuts after a while, nice when they cruise by though.

It is incorrectly recorded (by wheels mag in the first instance) as a cleveland unit because it was built at the cleveland plant, but it is definately a windsor.
