85e150 makes very valid points. But to keep the rpm down, you'll get more torque out of a stroker kit. Heads and stroker kits run about the same for parts. Downside to the stroker is the extra cost...

The 165 heads will give you good torque. I am interested in your cam profile and intake/carb setup. Usually the whole air-fuel system needs to be examined. Can we get an idea of where in the power...

Should be a drop in replacement too. I had to go that route after my valve cover swap with Shaun (Fordzilla). The chrome ones he had were push on for both.

With that breather, I think the Spectra PCV would also be a nice upgrade. It's about the same size and high chrome. Just a suggestion.

I understand the classic look, but I am going for a "Bullit Tribute" build on mine, so I want a few touches to set it apart from the rest of the fleet. And nothing overtly obvious.

I don't think I'm going to do that with mine. I'm leaning toward the Bronco style badging on it. I have a fifth wheel gate right now, so I figured I'd switch to an aftermarket plain tail gate and use...

Yeah, no kidding. That is in way better shape than mine.

On a positive note, I finally got around to installing a new breather on the valve covers Shaun sent me. Thinking a new PCV cap and air cleaner will make it look nice. One thing at a time.

I hope the yards around here run that price. I don't want to have to spend what LMC wants for door shells.

I'm investigating the door panels to get an idea of what will be needed in that area. Short answer is new doors. PO has torn up the speaker mount areas to fit 6x9 speakers. It was very poorly done. I...

It is however not cost effective to switch to a Windsor engine when you have a 400 in place. Also, the 400 was never designed to replace the Windsor. It was designed to compete with Chevy's 6.6 liter...

I think it's well worth it even with a baseline TMeyer kit, like I got. Hard to argue with over 400ft-lbs carb'd

Looks like plenty of steel from the top at least. Not sure what the passages do inside the casting.
