Hey Guys,

I have 2 sets of 302/351 Clevland Heads sitting in the garage. During a conversation with my dad.....and a few beers later, we where discussing engine combinations and this came up. I said to him we should chuck them on the 302W. Now i know they are not the BEST heads avaliable today but they are just sitting on the shelf doing nothing, and in saying that the standard windsor heads are terrible.

Firstly has anyone one here done this? and secondly what is needed to be done?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Nath

Thanks guys really helpfull. Makes you think really how good these are, I mean setting aside the weight advantages of alloy heads, how would they compare.....hmmmmmm might need to give it ago.

Not quite on topic??
But also consider these alloy Windsor heads..

Keep in mind there are other things to consider other than flow numbers...
Always check valve spring pressures.. Even on performance heads...
No issues with EFI manifolds bolting up if using EFI...
