re Blue Thunder Iron

Rules vary by association. Our Association, Indiana truck pullers, allows only iron heads. There is no restriction on which heads, so long as they are iron.
You'll just have to check the rules for the clubs you want to pull with.

Are the Fords at a disadvantage here because we have no iron aftermarket support? Or can you guys get the old scj heads to hold their own?

If it is an OEM iron head rule...the D0OE-R properly built will easily "hold it's own"! Problem is...we're going to run out of them not too many years down the road.

If aftermarket iron is allowed the EX514 will more than do the same, although I think some Associations have outlawed the EX514. Too mean for the Bowtie.

Not sure if this answers your question directly....but in the rulebooks I have seen, it's always been a "yes-no" question. In other words, they either allow any iron head; or they specifically prohibit all aftermarket; or they specifically prohibit the EX-514. I have not seen any books that ban the BTs.

I have not seen anything (around here anyway) that allows a particular aftermarket head, but penalizes for it by weight, carburetor size, etc.

I may have missed something, but didn't you mention about a year or so back that someone unnamed (NOT Clint Eastwood :lol: ) was planning to release new repro D0OE castings? Did I miss it or has it not happened?

re limitations

Our assoc. has no limits on the heads as long as they are iron. Our only limitation is cubic inches. Our super stock is limited to 470ci, and our prostock is limited to 485ci but pro is allowed to run aluminum. I know that Illinois truck pullers assoc. allows 485ci in their superstock, but limits everyone to running iron intakes and (I think) double pumper carbs.
