I know we all love V8, but has anyone tweaked up any six-bangers? I've surfed down under but that crossflow and other cool stuff won't sit on a US block. There must be individuals who worked their way around the integrated intake, I'd be glad to hear your innovative solutions and what came out of it, in means of HP etc. Mods to the block and so on.

Why won't the crossflow stuff work on a US block? I have a Maverick with a 250 six and had considered trying to do something about a better head.

We have a couple of real slick cross flow conversions that hang around here at M&M.

check out www.fordsix.com
its all I need to say
they had to redo the site, but I do believe everything up to two or three weeks ago is fully archived -- nothing but great info!

one of the best modifications I can say for a STOCK six is to put in a T-5 -- adds a whole new dimension of fun and enjoyment to the car
also a clifford (or hooker) header (I prefer dual outlet ) helps in the sound department and, on a well tuned stock engine, adds a bit of extra low end grunt

best of luck!

Here are some cool parts just for the 200

We also have gear drives to replace the timing chain all together

Go to FordSix.com for all your needs. We can help with with everything you need for much less than Clifford's prices (and better service)

That's an Australian 250 2V head. It bolts directly to a US 144/170/200/250 and uses the same valve train and exhaust manifolds/headers as the US models. It was produced in the 70's in Australia. They are available here in the states. Check out this for a few more pics of it

http://www.ncinternet.net/~durham/index2.html

Also check out the Argentine 221 head

http://www.geocities.com/jryelverton/221info.html

It also bolts onto a US block, and is still produced south of the border. One of the guys down there is working on a head kit that will include a new head, 4bbl manifold, headers and valve train for around $750 plus shipping from LA.

We also have coated dual outlet headers which will be available in the next few weeks for $245 plus shipping. That's about the same price as Clifford's plain non-coated header

Keep an eye on FordSix.com, we are having some fun!

Sorry for my bad knowledge but I assumed Aussie stuff won't bolt up, because some time ago there was a classified ad at the fordsix.com with a aussie head for sale. Somebody asked about compatibility with US blocks and the answer was no. Now changing back to compatibility mode.

Obviously I have surfed Clifford, Fordsix, http://sally67.stangnet.com/index.html and others. All nice stuff but not for budget guy like me. Sure it takes a big heap of money to get an aussie head to the other side of the world, to northern Europe. 250 would be a cheaper solution but does not sound too exciting.

I have a '68 block and two std heads for that; one of them is going to get std treatment but the other will be experimental; I thought of drilling six holes to that intake and planting six tubes into holes like extending the intake ports and bending the tubes together in two parts; forming a "bi-plane" manifold under a 4bbl std carb. One side feeding cyls 1-3 and other feeding 4-6. Budget stuff, little tricky but adventurous.

If this fires I'll road-test it in my '80 Fox next summer. Should be easy to put it in as there is one 200cid already.

Keep telling what you recommend.

Thanks,
Teppo
