"Is your 427 an FE or a Windsor? If its a windsor its very easy you could get 5-600hp out of one and be very streetable plus no modifications to the engine mounts, and there is a ton of aftermarket parts. There are aftermarket blocks that are…"
Hi Steve, what's shakin? Love your truck, it's FORD.....I haven't checked the mail for a long time, workin on my truck every minute I can. I don't have a lift kit, nor am I going to. You wanna know how it got this high. Skyjacker coil-over gas shocks, front, and rear, that's all. The paint came from the factory, except the lower 8 inches. I put on dura-guard, and thought it looked better black. I am now painting all of the black with dupli-color metallic black. Couldn't find the gray until tonite, but it's too late, I'm painting the roof black. Dupli-color people are great. They found me a place that I could order it, but the gray is in good shape, so I will leave it alone. Is your ride a 4x4? I love the old trucks better....YOU CAN WORK ON THEM YOURSELF.......Have a good weekend Steve.
hey steve i did put a 350 in my s10 . I think a big block in your truck would be a great choice . but Im a big block fan. what ever you decide just do it for you and it will work out. talk to you later.
I have a shirt that I wear alot and get alot of comments on, it says "Smoke 'em til the tires fall off" But I heard, and have since verified it though a couple of police officers, that smoking the tires and leaving rubber on the road is a felony, with a fine of $1500.00. Leaving black marks is 'defacing government property', hence the felony. I don't do it anymore. Well, the car can't and the truck is all apart.
Thanks, Steve. I have the original 318 in my car. I think there is over 400K miles on it. I had it rebuilt once and it is pumping close to 300 HP, but someday want to take ti higher. I have a '69 Ford F100 that was my daily driver before my Fury. About a year before I quite driving it, I took out the original 302 and put in a 460/C6 combo. Talk about a sleeper! I tore it down to the bare frame and was starting to street rod it, but can't keep the plymouth running and street rod a truck, so abandoning the truck. But the switch from the 302 to the 460 was easier than I thought. So if you are thinking about it, DO IT!
No problem bro, just thought I would check in on ya is all. I don't have MSN unfortunately, but I do have yahoo e-mail and messenger. Don't know if you have them or not. Take care man and holler at me and let me know if you have yahoo or not. Later
