Hey, was just curious, (me and my friend have the 351) does anyone know what the stock HP ratings (the real ones, not the 250, and 290 Ford gave out) are on the 351 Windsor?

Also, if anyone has any dyno charts, or links to them reguarding this engine, please post them!

Thanks again

Chris

with the desktop dyno and the specs for a 69 4v 351W , it said 253 hp at 4500 rpm. thats with a 416 lift cam, 600 cfm carb, dual plane manifold, stock exhaust, 184 intake and 153 exhaust valves with stock ports. and the factory 10.25 compression ratio. the main limiting factors on this engine seem to be exhaust and cam limitations. i ran my engines combo on there too and got a figure of 285 hp. thats with less compression and the same cam. same carb, manifold but with headers and through thte mufflers. i know the cam on here limits alot. bigger valves would help alot too. ever take a look at the ports on a C9OE head?? maybe im used to the big ass Cleveland ones i have sitting around, but damn they look tiny. esp the exhaust ones.
