Response to Stock Looking Clevo

Here I've been telling dad that this Ford is easily 1/2 as expensive as any of my Mopars and then I look up the price on that intake. However, Even paying retail I think this build will end up at 60% or less of the last street 440 I built.

Different reports say that the intake is taller than stock (1/2"-5/8" depending on who measured) but that it does fit under a Shaker. Some guys mentioned using adjustable motor mounts (I didn't know they existed) to drop the engine about 3/8".

With the cam you mentioned, what would I want to set the rev limiter at?

I'm lost on the valvetrain stuff. I have seen several mentions of one piece valves and rocker arm differences so it looks like I have more research to do. What are restrictor tips?

This definitely sounds like the way I want to go. I'm really doubting the complete engine I'm looking at has any of these modifications (possibly pistons and cam).

Thanks!
Troy
