The intake manifold is cast into the head. The 250 head can be milled down to the cc's of the 200 head for better performance.

Hi, the heads will interchange, as will many other parts, but there are differences between years. Another difference is the later heads have a larger carb opening, so if you have an early engine the old carb won't fit.
Get the Ford Falcon Performance Handbook and learn more about your Ford 6.
Good luck

Howdy Kyle:

And welcome to The Forum. To answer your question in more detail, the 200 and 250 heads are identical, given the year of design and production. As Bill (wsa111) said, the intake manifold is integrally cast as part of the head, so swapping intake manifolds are not possible. Later heads had larger volume intake manifold capacity as well as other advantages over earlier head castings.

We'd like to be helpful to you but we will need more information about your situation. If you are looking for exchange options or upgrades we can help. Also reading through the past posts and archives will be helpful to you.

Are you new to Falcon sixes?

Again welcome.

Adios, David
