You need Romeo...but you can use Windor also if you get a set of Windsor valve covers and and timing cover bolts. I had Windsor heads on my Romeo block.

here's a quote from DropTopPony in a diff thread:

windsor and romeo heads and blocks are interchangable as long as you get the correct valve covers and timing cover bolts for whatever head you use.

windsor blocks are said to be slightly more stout...come with 8 bolt crank (not forged) and have a different main cap bolt system (something with the side screws) that adds a little strenth.

The head bolts are the same for Windsor and Romeo heads,
for the timing cover go to the Ford Parts counter and tell them you need the bolts that go through the timing cover into the head...i think they were 10mm and the Romeos are 8mm...or even easier is to go to www.modulardepot.com and go to the Ford Parts forum run by Randy S...post a thread and tell him what you have and he will know exactly what you need and hook you up...thats where i get my misc nuts and bolts because he knows exactly what we need since he builds and races these engines in his 96GT and is the parts manager at liberty Ford in MAryland.

Get ARP head bolts and use the ARP lubricant that comes with them to torgue them.
