Are Windsor and Romeo heads interchangable?

Ok so i want to put ported heads on my truck and i dont know if i have romeo or windsor heads??? I wanna see if i can pick up an extra set and have them ported???

My truck is a 08 4.6 2v.

Also are these heads interchangable with any combo (romeo block/windsor heads?) (windsor block/romeo heads?)

Thanks!!!

for those who are interested in the info:


the modular heads will interchange on the modular blocks

the Romeo 2 valve heads use different cam spacers, and different timing cover to head bolts...


other than that it's a fairly straight forward interchange

Count your valve cover bolts.
If you have 13 on one valve cover it is a Windsor.
I think the romeo only has 11 bolts holing the valve cover.

And that will tell you if you have romeo or Windsor heads on your truck.

You can find stock used heads for about 300 bucks. So shop around.
