And yet you'll get a fine from OSHA if you run a jack hammer without a muffler.

You should see the fine they gave me for running open headers on the Cleveland in my 66 mustang. Too loud they said but but but.

The Cleveland didn’t appear until 1970. I did it using 10 piece headers and a BIG shoehorn. It has tons of torque and two kits of nitrous. Grocery getter

Bingo.
Yet, trying to save your hearing, and anyone near you - and just be polite - somehow makes you a villain... :roll:

Sure it wasn't a Windsor? A Cleveland is too wide for the shock towers on a '65 and '66 without modifying the towers. From 67 and up a Cleveland will fit.

I have a Boss 351 in my '70 mach 1.

Yeah I made $50 from a guy years ago who told me a Cleveland wouldn’t fit, then I op n d the hood. No major modifications to the shock towers a slight massaging in two places with a finely tuned 3 pound hammer. Tubular Automotive 10 piece headers. A slightly modified 1965 mustang engine mount on one side and a 1966 mount on the other. Header bolts touch when all the way in and 10 pounds of cocoa butter and in it goes. That is with 4v heads not 2v. Mine has the mechanical cam setup with a roller.
No disrespect meant but I do know a Cleveland from a Windsor. I have 5 Cleveland’s. And in honor of the op a 22 can and a silencerco hybrid which makes 45/70 a pussycat.
