    Is it worth putting in a 427 side oiler?

    which 40 are you refuring to? The Lola GT mk6? Or anything between the Lola and the GT40 mk5? GT40s won races with the big block FE where the small block 289 all failed. It was a FIA decision to end the big cubic inches to a 302 max where Ford desided to sell the program to JWA. Where JWA went...

    Is it worth putting in a 427 side oiler?

    These days, the 427 FE Alloy engines are far better and 45% lighter than the cast iron versions. Not sure if you can make a side oiler out of any FE engine. https://www.shelbyengines.com/collections/all-fe-parts/products/finished-block?variant=167529822 Shelby lists even complete alloy 427 FE...
