All EB-EL V8's are HO windsor's the EL2 XR8 has all HO parts except the inlet manifold. There is nothing good about them. Ditch the heads cam AND manifolds before anything else.

Forgot to mention that i took off the engine cover today for a bit of paint and on top
of the inlet under the cover it had a small HO casting on it,not sure if thats normal throughout
the 5.0 range or not.

185kw ELs also got the ELGT exhaust manifolds.

Didn't know about the EL GT Headers, I thought they were the same as previously.
