400 Ford w/ Aussie Cleveland heads

I am getting ready to put together a 400 Ford w/ Aussie Cleveland heads. This is going to be a torque monster that I want to put into a '69 or '70 Country Squire that I will be using for towing and an ocassional blast down the strip. Has anyone ever put one of these engines together?
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks, Mike

The only "advice" is that there are not a lot of 400 pistons. Most people that are building a performance 400 bush the rods and use 351C pistons. The 400 stuff usually ends up way too far down in the hole to get decent quench - an therefore is more prone to detonation. YMMV - work with your shop on this issue.

This may not help you much but I was looking through the latest issue of mustangs and fords (I think that was the name) and in the back was a picture of an engine on a stand that a guy sent in with a little article that said it was a 400m that he had made into a fuel injected. I don't remember if he used the assie heads or not but I think he used a 460 ecu and 5.0 upper fuel injection manifold. Maybe if you can find that issue you can maybe get hold of the guy who built it.

Also over on $$$$$$$$.com in the classical mustang section that someone posted edelbrock is comming out with alluminum heads and a performer rpm gap manifold for sometime in the early to mid of next year. They were on display at the sema show with pictures.

Thanks guys! I would love to go with fuel injection. I have heard that Edelbrock is coming out with Cleveland heads. The Cleveland has always been my favorite Ford engine and I think it is starting to make somewhat of a comeback from extinction. Maybe Dart or World will make a super stout Cleveland block someday. I can only wish!
