Sorting Out Ford V-8 Engines
Ford has a Ford V8 Performance 'Stocker's Bible' by Engineer Bill Carroll. It has OEM specs for heads, cams etc. I am not sure its for aftermarket parts though. You have to remember Ford does not do the exact SB or BB type of engines like the others. Which means there is more than one person whom has mastered each engine family. For instance Barney Navarro did with the flatheads or Barry Robotnick is known for some wicked FE engines. I don't think one person could master every engine family Ford has and will design.

I should say the 'stockers bible' doesn't do newer engines.

how about Ford V8 Performance Guide by Bill Carroll
it looks old timey.i almost got it for 292.
now that i'm a Ford engine expert
i can tell that 221 listed first means
it starts at Windsor around '61 so
wouldn't go back to 292 and it's siblings.
plus came to my senses about 292 and high performance
this book is not from Ford Racing.

Jeez, but chain stretch must have been a nightmare on that thing.

We're running 2000+hp on a street driven car with full A/C, interior, and all factory comfort items.

i think the 427 SOHC is available as a crate motor now.
attachment is MOPAR book that includes their crate motor chapters.
IF Ford Racing put out books the fix for that chain thing would
be in it.
good rule of thumb in engine building or race car fabrication
is 'you can only serve one master'.
point being is:get engine, read book, blueprint engine & run engine.
otherwise you end up all over the place.
Have A Nice Day!
