2v and 4v blocks

Are the 2v blocks and 4v blocks the same or is there a difference?

You can put 2v 3v or 4v heads on any 4.6 or 5.4 block. They are all the same and use the same head gaskets. The blocks are basically the same although very minor difference in romeo windsor and teksid but to answer your question yes the heads all swap over

But if I was you I wouldn't worry about swapping to cobra heads. Get a good pair of 2v heads and it will do you plenty of good. Plus the 4v are much more to build since their double everything in the valvetrain

I cammed my car for roughly 700 and that's with comp cam custom grinds so the cams weren't cheap. to do that In a 4v is gonna cost you 1200 for the cams alone. Sure they may breath better but I honestly believe in the 2v capabilities. People overlook it because of the 4v and 3v but the 2 can be made into just as much of a monster as them.

Yeah but I am not trying to build mine up. I'm just trying to get it running again I spun a rod bearing and a buddy has a 4v motor and I was just going to get the block. I didn't know if it would match up.

It will be more of a hassle cause you have to buy a bunch of thing to get it to work then get it tuned

For a whole motor that's pretty good. Just make sure it's in 100% working order first

Get the 4v motor use your heads. But have your heads/valves inspected and cleaned (metal shavings travel thru out the engine). The block will interchange np. But u will have a bump in compression do to the small dished pistons. If your gettng a mark motor then everything will bolt up to the crank being they are 6 bolt crank. If u have questions pm me I'll help u as much as I can.
