    347 stroker build

    If that is your intended use I would leave the BW diff that’s in it and maybe spend money on that instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    347 stroker build

    I love the SBF Windsor, so always interested to read about builds. My first question is, what is your budget. That will dictate your build and end goal. What do you want to do with it? Time and time again the BW diff has proven itself to be reliable for the power you are looking for and a nine inch isn’t really necessary, however depending on what you intend the car for will dictate the running gear. A 302w with 10:1 comp and a mild roller cam and AFR 165 heads will hit the 400hp mark, lots of information on the mustang 5.0 forums. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    50oz both ends, what size bell housing are you going to run, that will determine the size of flex plate or flywheel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    By the time you buy a blower carb and modify the bonnet (reverse cowl) plus the blower itself you are really into some cash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Smaller Weiand 174 blower for a Windsor is now 5-6k for the kit. I should have got one years ago but now it’s too expensive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The grey RTV stuff, use masking tape on the block and manifold so when it squishes out a bit you can wipe it and then remove the tape for a clean look. I haven’t looked at manifold prices in a long time. You use to be able to get a new alloy rpm performer for around $400. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’d personally get rid of those cork valley gaskets and use sealer. I think that intake will hold this Windsor back somewhat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’d be interested to see how that goes, it’s quite surprising how much carb these little things can take. When I was shopping around for a carb for mine the consensus was the usual 600cfm vac sec, but it never really ran right. Thinking it was too big went down to a quick fuel 450 dp and it was better in the idle to mid range and then went flat. Took a gamble on a new Quick fuel 650dp and basically straight out of the box it was mint. Tuned it using the wide band afr and it starts easy, revs crisp as hell and has steady afr right up to 6500.

    Might have to apply some heat to it. I’m sure we pressed the steel gear on to the dizzy for mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just get another dizzy, then swap the gear over. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What’s the diameter of the shaft that goes into the hole for the oil pump drive? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If you are using the original cam then take the gear of the AU piece and put on another dizzy. Just make sure the shaft size is the same. The steel gears use to be about $40, that was 10 years ago for me. I used Mallory steel gear and a Mallory dizzy and the roll pin had to be re drilled to suit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Any 302w dizzy will fit, a steel gear is recommended, just make sure the hex drive is the right size as that is what can vary. Don’t be a cheap ass and get procomp... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I like that it looks like it has just come out of an XW or similar with the blue and chrome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
