I'm going to disagree with Don here. In 71 you could get the ram air option on the cars with 4Vs. However, there was no way (except for the 429 CJ cars) to tell if was factory installed. The 429CJ engine code, either C or J, denoted the presence or absence of the RA option. Starting in 72, only the 2V versions of the 351 could get the RA option for the reasons that Don stated.
Ram air was available on 351 4v's how about the boss. early 4v's got ram air as a option, my guess would be no Q codes probably only some M codes. Ford got caught tring to pass a 2V as a 4V and had to only put it on 2V's ,but some 4V's got out. If you have a 71 Q code it is a very uncommon car I believe less than a thousand were made. I think that the Qcode was a little late for ram air.
This is way off track,but i gotta ask Jim this question?is your 71 dart a factory 340 car?
as i have a 71 340 dart also[factory] an they are only sup to be 50 ever built, all for canada
i also have a 69 GTS dart
sorry guy i had to ask
No, sorry to say it's not. It was originally a 318 car, but the 340 came with the loads of parts that I bought that will someday be a driver. Now, if I could only quit breaking my other cars so I would have time to work on it!
Took my head to the machine shop to have seized exhaust manifold bolts removed, the exhaust manifold was also way off and he’s going to sand that for me. He checked the head itself and said “ its really close - im Concerned about this spot between piston five and six where there is no resistance...
So placed an order, and some of it is on back order. Promised in 3 weeks. Date came and went. Called the 800 number, permanent hold. Sent an email, no response.

Other than terrible customer service, what else?
To the Mustang Dealers on who read this site:

So, this happened.
Last monday was supposed to be a great day: We were finally going to bring our mustang up for examination before getting a title here in the Netherlands.

So, I've got my OEM rear suspension all torn out and I'm putting in Global West L-10Rs, bilsteins, and Del A Lum bushings. I ordered a set of U bolts from Summit, but I'm concerned about the 4 leaf to 5 leaf length of U bolts. Here are the ones I bought, will they work? If not, which ones do I...
