Where is a good place to find out more about the 427. I,ve heard of sideoiler, centeroiler, topoiler, and whatever. What are the differences and which is better? Are there any more types. I'd like any info I can get.

there is a book called "Ford Performance" or "Performance Ford" (Has a jellow cover with four pictures on the front) that has allot of introductory information. I think that it is about 15 bucks and is a good book to get covers small to large blocks.

Short of the 'Cammer' and aluminum-block racing variations of the engine, I believe that the side-oiler represented the top of the evolutionary path for the 427.

You didn't ask about low, medium and hi-riser designs?

Don't the highriser, mediumriser, lowriser just have to do with the heads and intake? The higher flowing more fuel that than the lower heads and complimentary intakes. If this isn't right please correct me. I'm mostly interested in the lower end of the engine. Isn't that the idea behind the different designs?
Thank you.

there are several FE forums on the net right now. Take a trip over to http://www.fomoco.com and post some questions on the FE forum there and what they can't answer, they will certainly point you in the right direction....
