    What about 463hp from a Lincoln 368 Y-Block with 466ft lbs of torque?

    i am going to re-post this because I can't believe Y block guys are not jumping on these heads
    I copied this from Facebook
    This is a share from Luca Faroni, He lives in Argentine. Note that in 1969 the head-manifold design was changed to a Windsor style. This style was used until 1984. If these were in aluminum, it would have saved Jon Kaase a lot of time an money. He says that these heads are available and a rare 4 bbl manifld is also. Enjoy.

    Ford Argentina use the Y Block v8 until 1984. On 1969 they develop a new head also made with iron. The new desing was based in the 289 v8 heads that Ford engeniers have from some test cars. This is know here as "FASE 2".


    I didn't find this posted. Thought it was interesting to the Y block guys who have not already seen it.

    I bet it wouldn't be all that hard to have a pallet load of these heads shipped to OAK or some other port. i wounder how many would actually want a pair?
