An X pipe will always flow better than an H pipe. So given the choice between the two, go with an X pipe. And yes, the general area still applies for both X and H.

Well, thats easy. All the following parts would be the same, except its the Ford version of it!!
You know, like A460 headed 500 cubic inch with matching intake, and all else being equal.

Are you planning any weight reduction of this car, or keeping it all intact??

Trimming or rolling them will increase clearence a little bit. The wheel well shape between a GT or Cobra is different from that of a regular Torino I believe.

I just put a 275-60-15 on my 71 GT. Backspacing is at 4.5"
It will take a 295, but things get real close, and its kind of a b!tch to get the wheels on/off.

I believe the 4 bolt mains were a necessity on the super speedways where the forces of high RPMs and constant vibration would have probably been cause for excessive cap walk.

In the early years,...

Ideally, it should protrude inside the collector about 1/8th of an inch.
Flush will work, but not as good as a slight protrusion will.

110 is probably a little overkill for 9.8:1 compression, but you should be fine with it.
Your plug may be a little on the hot side, I would swap them for a R5671A-9.

Maybe the "S" stands for "SCAT"??....just a guess.
I think current SCAT cranks have the word "SCAT" cast into the side of a counter weight.

When you replaced the radiator, did you flush out the block at the same time??
It could be rust scale breaking loose and clogging up the system, causing it to run hot.
