Is 4,250 a standard due to availability of rings?

Couple of things...

January 6 2014, 7:31 PM 

First, I wonder how that block fits in the front of the GT40? And does that original Thunderbolt really have a BBM side oiler in it? Do you think they asked permission from the sites they pirated those photos from?

Ok, in all seriousness, I just skimmed it. The only thing that I caught is that they say that intake accepts Holley 4150/4160 base carbs, when its probably only 4160 carb spacing.

Also read through the "about BBM" section. They are trying hard to distance themselves from the foreign produced parts stigma.

I don't know about you guys but I have yet to find a perfect flyer. I can show you lots of mistakes in Ford Off Hichway and HyPo parts books in fact Ford Raceing has a few duffers in its catalog. Lets knock off the nit pickin till we see what they got. If there stuff is good we'll go for it, if its trash we'll let everybody know in a loud clear voice!!

Wow! That stuff looks really good. I'd like to know

what the flow numbers are or did I miss it? Looks like one could build a very dependable 800 HP FE more cheaply than ever before.

Any news on Blue Thunder heads

becoming available? Thought that was also happening soon. As for the BBM, sure looks and sounds like quality stuff with some serious financial clout behind it. One has to think that isn't good news for some of the current smaller players as this is a limited market.
