This might be of interest to you.....I know it's from a magazine, but still noteworthy.
I'd go with a smaller cam, and better springs, maybe conical with a lightweight retainer...

I know this thread is a month old but now I'm starting to look for an Explorer engine.
I would like to stay with the GT40 head and not the P head to avoid header problems.
What year Explorer should I look for?
Does anyone know of a deal on one in south east Michigan?
I know as soon as I buy one someone would say" why didn't you tell me you were looking for one. My buddy has one he wants to off load Cheap!"
I'd rather find that guys buddy right now ;-)
