Take this post with a grain of salt (around the rim) as I've had a few Margaritas.

My inital directon has been towards building a windsor based motor with a pair of old dart iron heads
between a 357-408 motor, but I keep looking at building a cleveland with 4v quench heads that I have access to and a complete 2v motor that i have access to.

My mind says build for a c4 but my heart says 5spd.

I'm looking for opinions, you can't hurt my feelings at this point (margaritas)

car is a 86 coupe

Iron headed 351W vs iron headed Cleveland?

Cleveland hands down IMO.

This a street strip car?   Drag strip only?  Are you going to stay factory iron heads?

Street/strip car on pump gas

My thoughts were to run iron factory quench 4v heads and to have Jay do the valve train.

Automatic would be more consistent and easier on drivetrain but boy a 5spd sure would be fun!

I think my hat size may be a couple of sizes bigger this morning......Cinco De Mayo *^#@?!!!

4V iron heads are a good chioce.  Sounds like you have a good plan.

I've heard rumors about a 351C rebuild Jay did that when into mid to low 10s in a relatively stock Foxbody IIRC, (Trying to find that post now, lost it in the rest of my SBFTech Favorites...) twist his arm and get him to spill the beans.  Naughty
