A few months ago I joined the site and mentioned building an old school 351c High Port for my Pinto drag car....now I can give a little bit of an update. I just received my new oil pan, I've used the Milodon box style pan in the past but wanted to try something different, there wasn't much out there so I had Moroso build a pan. I also recently got my heads back from Price Motorsport who did the high port conversion. Yes, I could have bought better flowing modern heads but this is what I wanted....like what the 70's Pro Stockers ran. Should be cool when it finally gets together!!! Hopefully, more progress will be made over the next couple months and it'll hit the strip next year I hope, but you know how that goes :roll:

How do you get to the bolts on the pan?

Through access plugs in the bottom of the pan.

I can only see what looks like 4 access holes. Maybe just the picture.

On some pans, you don’t use all the holes in the block.

Maybe I should have put this thread in the general discussion section? Dear administrator, please move if you feel so inclined :D

Here's a pic of my headers. This is a Hedman Husler weld up kit I got from Jegs for a BBC and bought 351c flanges separate.

Nice on the headers. A nice straight shot way past the first curves.

I posted my Hi-Port story on the old Forum but can't access it now. Long story short: pals added the Hi-Ports in a really hot 351C in a Mav but used off-the-shelf headers (tight curves right out of the ports). Result? Hardly any e.t. reduction. Next season, they cut out the fender wells and had new headers made-up with at least a 6" or so straight shot out of the heads. Picked up about 2/10ths! Ford btw used to advertise at least a 20hp gain with your high-ports.

Always saw them on the P/S cars of the 70's and liked it. After buying this Pinto I wanted something nostalgic but wasn't sure what engine to use...Boss 302, 427 FE or a 351c. It didn't take too long to decide on a High Port. Decent power, somewhat inexpensive :roll: and plenty of old school cool factor. Hopefully it works out well.

I have a set of new old stock 'JR' brand headers for a high port in a Maverick...maybe its the same type your friend used?

Could be but I've lost touch with them so we'll never know.

Lots of detailed pics on the 'Net (as you know) of old Pro Stock engine compartments, meaning one could replicate the carb scoops/pans, usually Accel ditzy and wiring pieces and colors, and other underhood 'stuff' for the look.
