    Heya guys! I wanted to ask you all some questions about the 250 CID I6!

    One of the primary things I'm interested in is if someone makes an aftermarket or performance head / intake for the I6. I think I read on here that the head and the intake were actually done in one cast, and after I failed to find anything for a long time on any sort of aftermarket parts for it, I had given up.

    But, I was doing some reading on here and someone actually mentioned a performance head for the car, an OZ250o 2V head. The issue with this is that it seems that that
    1.) Not a lot of people seem to be talking about them as of late, and it's kind of tough to find info on them.

    And 2.) They seem to be Australian parts mean't for the I6 Falcon?

    I was wondering if anyone here had any information about aftermarket intakes / heads for the 250 I6, like where I could look to get one; And what all I would need to do to get one to work on my car (a '72 Maverick with the 250 CID).

    Thanks!

    I took my stock head to a machine shop and had them mill the cast intake accept a 2bbl adapter along with a few other things. I'm toward the end of my 250 build if you have any questions

    Did you notice much of a difference in performance w/ this upgrade? I know someone who has talked about doing his 250..
