Naww!!!! if the guy has a 300, you don't wanna cut two cleveland heads....(because you'd have to buy new Edelbrock aluminum heads, and then butcher them)@madmike1157
Ok.. and see my above edit... lol.
I may just have to really work that metal though because the boy really wants the mad max vibe. It's either that or believe it or not, leave the "patina" and clear it... not fond of that option.. I don't feel like it fits the category for that look...
Also, want to compliment you on your engine pic above, it's beautiful. My cameraman buddy has a 92 short f150 you've inspired to do a turbo I6 300 in. He's looking for where he can get a cyl head for it, asking me to chop and fuse two cleveland heads.. yeesh. Not sure about that, but it's been done..
Interesting.. I'm going to point this out to him!Naww!!!! if the guy has a 300, you don't wanna cut two cleveland heads....(because you'd have to buy new Edelbrock aluminum heads, and then butcher them)
You buy any of the plethora of stock LS heads, and do it instead.
Here's a pic of the 300 w/ a pair of LS6 heads sacrificed for the cause.
I tell ya If I knew from the start that I was gonna use a belt driven oil pump, this would've been engine in the car rather than the heavily modified 250 that sits there. The fact that a 300 had its factory oil pump right in the middle of the block (which would have wreaked havoc w/ the factory k member) was why I didn't go there, but if I knew that you could hack two LS heads apart and weld them bitc hes back together and have this,.. You'd be welding more than just one set of heads.
On second thought,...I'd probably have tried gluing them together first....Everything on the current engine is glued, may as well glue two heads together too right?
Here,.....going back to Old blues thread (considering the above is referencing a statement I made over there)From Old_Blue's thread. None of what you say is untrue per say. You just have a way of making things sound easy (er) than they are for us without your skillz...
That just gave me another idea.By the way.... The bagillion holes are not for looks. They are lightening holes (not to be confused with lightning holes). Probably good for 3/10 in the quarter. Assuming that Aussie VTAK kicks in at 1200 and it was a good day for the QC guy at JB Weld.
On a more serious note: I'm going to have to go back and look at the portion that describes all of the head modifications. I recall the highlights mostly.
That just gave me another idea.
Even I have to spend too much time flipping through a bagillion pages when I try and look back at something I said/did in my own build thread.
maybe I could create an index page that we could insert at the beginning that would point to the specific areas where I did stuff like modify the head/block, or the mini-tub, or the suspension etc.
obviously most of the junk I've done serves no purpose to the collective, but the fox specific crap would/might be useful if somebody didn't have to sift through a ton of s hit to find it.
