horsepower rating of 351W ?

Hello all, I've got a 1980 F-150 with the 351 Windsor. How do I find the horsepower and torque ratings for this motor ? I've been told that certain 351's are highly sought after for building up. And, some of them have special heads that are valuable ? Thanks

Your HP and torque figures will vary depending on the year and fuel setup. As described an earlier thread today, 302s and 351s have shared the same heads since the late 70s. What's more important is getting right head castings. If your heads have E5TE, or E6TE, get rid of them. They don"t breathe very well. The E6s are worse, but you can better than both. E7TEs breathe much better. Ideally you want to find something that has F#ZE on them. Those will be a variant of the GT40 heads. These heads will also be marked with a GT40 on top. Keep in mind that the bolt holes on a 351 head are larger than a 302, so if you get heads from a 302 those holes will need to be enlarged.

BTW, you may want to reach out to a guy with the screename of Conanski. I think he usually views the 87-96 and the 302 forums. He knows as much as anybody on these engines.
