Overview

If there is one thing Ford Enthusiasts have learned over the years, deciphering which parts work with which engines is a far more difficult task with Fords than with many other engine families. Will Cleveland heads fit on my Windsor block? What is the difference between the two distinct families of big-blocks? What heads are available for use on my small block? Can I gain compression by using older model cylinder heads? Which pulleys should I be able to use on my engine swap? These are just a few examples of common questions Ford fans have. These, and many other questions are examined in this all-new color update of a perennial best-seller.

Thoroughly researched, High-Performance Ford Parts Interchange includes critical information on Ford's greatest V-8 engines and goes into great detail on the highly desirable high-performance hardware produced throughout the '60s ,'70s and '80s. By combining some of the best parts from various years, some great performance potential can be unlocked in ways Ford never offered to the general public. Following the advice in High Performance Ford Parts Interchange, these engine combinations can become reality. You will find valuable information on cranks, blocks, heads, cams, pulleys, intakes, rods, pistons, and even accessories to guide you through your project.

Author George Reid has once again done extensive research to accurately deliver a thorough and complete collection of Ford V-8 information in this revised edition. Knowing what internal factory engine parts can be used across the wide range of production Ford powerplants is invaluable to the hot rodder and swap meet/Ebay shopper. A must-have for every Ford enthusiasts library.

"A must-have for any Blue Oval engine builder." -Muscle Car Review, December 2010
High-Perf Ford Engine Parts Interchange
We use George's book so often that we keep it on our desk, with a short stack of other essential books we use day in and day out to help us put the magazine together each month. So we were extremely pleased to hear that CarTech asked Reid to update this popular book with the latest parts and offerings, new and more in depth research, and updated full-color photos. -Modified Mustangs and Fords, October 2010
