Re: 351 Windsor ID ??

Yes, the 69 (C9) refers to the year the part was introduced , not necessarily when it was cast.

Re: 289 Kit

It was the dome volume I was after - to give some idea of comp ratio, is there a CP part number? Can you tell whether the crank is machined from a billet or a forging?

Re: 383 SBC quad 48 IDA 200hp 248ftlbs ???

It is possible to set the rpm pickup incorrectly by entering the wrong firing interval. A quick comparison of the dyno rpm readout and the vehicles own tach would show any error.
