Haha. Ya, my original plan was to build a stroker out of 360. I just had the 351 sitting around and there's a ton of mustang builders selling their parts when they upgrade.
So I found some flow numbers online for the windsor sr heads. I put in my cam, intake, compression ratio, etc into desktop dyno and came up with 600hp at 6500 rpm and 520 lbft torque at 5000 rpm. Hp numbers were still climbing until about 8000 rpm but I'm not sure what rpm the crank and rods can handle. Does this seem a bit high for this combo? Is the program accurate?
