E150/250 vans, F150 trucks, Some large Lincoln/Merc/Ford cars like Cougars and T-Birds and Continentals. Early 70's thru early 90's.

If you can get your hands on a roller block, get it. A roller 351 is as good as sex, and in some cases better. IF You know what I mean.

According to what I have read in the "Building Short Track Horsepower" book the 76 to 89 truck and van 351 has a heavy duty block and good rods. In fact according to the book, Ford uses these blocks bored over to 4.030 as the "Sportsman" block that they sell in their performance parts program. The rods have football head rod bolts and a circular cut in the rod which gives them more strength.

I am going to start looking for one of these for my use as soon as I have a place to put it.
