Windsor has 13 bolt valve cover and the Romeo has an 11 bolt valve cover, nothing else is different. Just count how many bolts hold down your valve cover and then order the right ones.

Yup, only difference is the valve cover bolts, at worst, if you get the 'wrong' ones you'd need the right valve covers.

Windsors have 13 on one side and 14 on the other, I believe. Can't remember which side is which.

They also put the oil fill cap on different sides.

$446!!! For a red light? Man, I'd seriously be nuking every traffic light and cam in town over that. You should try to fight that, just don't go shooting up the courthouse.

Default stangers ride on!

well thats what i get for trying to beat the yellow arrow turning right on the intersection that cams flash light nearly blinded me seconds right after i proceeded with my turn.how could that not be illegal it blinded me for the next few seconds, if a pedestrian wouldve crossed infront of me, i couldve run that person over but the government knows what theyre doing right? technology could cause someones death for as the flashlight impaired my vision causing a distraction & it is known that (anything that can cause vision impairment/distraction while being on the road is illegal) whats up with that???

Good luck with that argument pal, they'll just tell you you shouldn't have run the light in the first place. Ever been going the opposite direction when a cop has someone pulled over? The put on so many damn flashing lights and flood lights its impossible to see anything else, and you'll see spots for a few minutes after. They are douchebags.
