jthompson Z-Head Question

Sent you a few PMs to no avail
Restoring an '86 GT w/MT & 5.0
Should have A, B, or C heads according to literature
I have "Z" heads
Have you run across this before?
I know A, B, C, are junk but, @ a couple of $K I don't want to replace these if I can have a machine shop fixem
Thanks man...

took care of this with pm's....I didnt' have my preferences set right and wasn't getting pm emails

for anyone interested, ALL mustang 1986 5.0 engines recieved fords grace with a set of the infamous "e6te" heads. (the non-ho roller 5.0 lincoln/crown vic motors recieved these lousy heads for years after) they were a swirl head designed for improved emissions. Port em and work em anyway you want, they still won't be as good as the 87-93 e7 heads, which are still restrictive but will free up 25 horses from changing heads. If doing the swap, just measure valve to cylinder clearance, as the 86 pistons, unlike the 87+ arent cut for valve reliefs, however the e7's should still fit on an 86 block. Take care all!
