Just wondering if anyone knows what the deck height of a 390 is?  Reason I'm asking is that I was at a show today and a 68 mustang with a 390 and Edlebrock RPM was used with a drop base air cleaner that fit under the stock flat hood.  So if I can figure out the deck height of the 390 and get the RPM measurements from Eddy's website, that will help me with measurements for a 351 based stroker for my 67.

I am not sure how close the 390 would be to the windsor since the motor mounts are not exactly the same or perhaps even the mounting position on the block...I would think you would be better asking for measurements from people who have a similar combo to what you are building..
