There are different breeds of both. The 2V open chambers were on the H-code engine and are very streetable and can run on low octane gas well. They have a lower torque curve, so you will be seeing your power band alot more in daily use. 4V heads, open or closed, make gobs of power, just higher in the band, usually above 3500 RPM. Its commonly accepted they aren't as streetable as the 2Vs for that reason. The best by far is the Aussie 2V: a 2V head, closed chambers for high compression, with 4V valves. I'd love to get me some of those babies, but they're a little hard to come by.

If you really have your heart set on this Use the 2V heads with a 4bbl manifold. But wait BA performance is out of bussiness so you will have to locate this special manifold before you jump into this conversion.
With all the aftermarket heads available for windsor motors there is no reason to go to all this trouble making this conversion.The new heads would be a much better choice both in terms of power and ease/cost of this upgrade

Other opinions here are sound so far....

Personally, unless you're doing a high rpm Boss-style 5 speed manual combo or are going for the Boss look, I'd stick with something like the AFR or TFS W heads....you'll get nearly the numbers and without all the swap headaches...

FWIW

It almost looked like "Hi if I'm gay..." /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif Not that there's anything wrong with that.
