Based on the stock bore, stroke, and rod length configuration of the venerable 351W Ford, these kits are based on the 3.500 factory stroke crankshaft. They are perfectly suited as stock replacement, or they can be set up with minor boost or increased compression for high performance street or street and strip combinations.
Flat Top
Flat top pistons in a 351 Windsor Ford engine will generally provide compression ratios in the 10.3:1 range which makes them a good option for engines with aluminum heads and larger than stock camshafts. Valve reliefs are configured to work with most types of standard and aluminum cylinder heads and will normally fit camshafts to slightly over .600 valve lift.

Villain - Cast Crank, Through-bolt rods, forged pistons, designed for stock replacement and mild performance applications.

Vigilante - 4340 Forged Crank, I-Beam rods, forged pistons, designed for Street or Street and Strip performance applications.
