Im currently looking at purchasing a new motor for my newly acquired 92 notch 4cyl. I wanna go with a 351. I have found a cleveland and a windsor. What are the big differences between them?

Re: 351W or 351C

everything , the Cleveland is physically bigger ,some people used to refer to it as a BIG Block
main difference is the Heads , intake etc ... supposedly the Cleveland has a stronger bottom end but i used to spin rod bearing in them all the time ... never in a Windsor , clevelands have oiling problems ,windsors don't
back in the day the Cleveland was the way to go for power ,but with all the heads and performance parts for the windsors now , its cheaper to go with the W ,and thay can make just as much power

Plus windsor is WAY easier to work with and tune and can also do fuel injection whereas the cleveland cant as far as I know

I chug syrup for money...
