    Wow! At first I thought it was about the boss 302 legend regarding putting 351C 4V heads on the 302 ( I think the y required machine work before installation) but that's just awesome. I wasn't aware of that being built. If you want to start a fight, ask a group of people if the Cleveland is a big or small block. People seem to think that they are more different than they are. I would love to have something like that. But I don't see it happening lol..

    Went to see the guy today and he is in Arkansas(poor guy jk) . I got him on the phone and told him just let me know anytime he is ready. Was hoping to add pictures of it today but it will take a little while before I can afford to do anything besides get the independent front suspension ,so I guess I'm not really in a rush. Cmon Lottery lol...

    Oh , you're referring to a "Clevor" engine. That head swap involved any kind of 341C/351M/400M head on to a Windsor block. I only saw one in the flesh but it was a strong runner, especially for the time because it was running on s**** 1970s lead free. The swap involved welding one small coolant passage and opening up another on the heads, a set of thin adapter plates between the manifold and the head, a different intake, and some other stuff. The problem with the swap that I recall was the that although the C heads got you bigger valves, they really began to produce gains in flow at the really high end(6,000rpm and above?), well above what a typical non-Boss 302 would run at without grenading. The Boss 302 block had some serious engineering to live at the occasional blip to 8,500rpm, like 4-bolt main bearing caps, a little more beef in the block webbing, better oil flow, etc, that the run of the mill 302 lacked. I've often thought about building a Clevor for kicks and sticking it into an ice racer of some kind, largely because they run a bit like a flat track bike with the throntle wide open most of the time,...:D
