Hey guys this is my first post on the website. To give some info about my car, its a 1966 Mustang coupe with a 302 and a c4 trans and an 8in rearend. I am starting to think about a way to boost the hp outta the 302. It has an Edelbrock Performer RPM and a 4BBL Edelbrock carburator on it now. I was thinking about picking up an intake adaptor from Price Motorsports and modifying the block to accept 2bbl cleveland heads. Does anyone have any advice on this? I know now of days its not exactly the best choice with aftermarket heads being better but its something you never see. Sorry for the long post, any advice would be much appreciated.

i don't really know anything about them but a guy in ont canada that i met at the barrie flea market builds them. it was awhile ago that i talked to him, but i'm thinkin he said 400-450 horse and 4000 dollars for the engine all done?? not sure if thtas u'r parts and stuff it was a long day, but he had one on a stand and it looked awesome, just like a boss engine. he swears by them high revving, lotsa power, and really good heads cheap, although he is making money on them, i remember everything he said sounded reasonable. i'll try to find his card and get u his #. i grab a card from everyone i see so it might take a bit hehe. but to have a boss engine in a stang would be awesome eh hehe. :kooky:

Info

You may want to check out a book, "How to Build Max Performance Ford V-8s On a Budget" by George Reid. It has some pretty good info on all Ford small blocks including the "Clevor" and gives some addresses for suppliers. Overall a really good book that goes into alot on what fits and what doesn't-what works and what doesn't.

dropped my mod motor idea for a 351W stroked to 408 clevor idea. I have been looking at the Eldelbrock heads and have found a company called AFD who's heads support up to 600HP roughly (I forget exactly) unported.

Aussie Clevo Heads

We continued using the Clevo engine in Aus for a while after you fellas quit and the aftermarket here is very strong for parts.
If you are really serious and have deep pockets, these 3V heads are the heads to use. Check out the following links... very cool indeed.

If I had the cash I would have bought some myself, but I stuck with the aussie 2v closed chambers with some mild porting, 3 angle job, big valve, iron heads which, by the way are super easy and cheap to get in aus. I wanted torque for nice streetability. Apparently you guys never had these heads in the US, pity they are good if you need a high compression ratio.
If you want to use the 4v iron heads for the street, then you absolutely need intake and exhaust port fillers, tongues or plates. Anyone that says different is full of it. Intake tongues will increase port velocity by up to 30%. A set of each is cheap and fairly easy to install and will dramatically improve torque and fun. (watch the 60' times plumet and the fuel consumption decrease around town)

I am going to put some exhaust plates on my 2v heads anyway.
A major bonus with alloy heads is the weight saving. I am on a pretty tight budget unfortunately so no alloy for me, except my nice edelbrock performer and really expensive propane setup.

Cheer n beers
