New motor - I'd have to go back to gas - If they put these in SD's

I liked the 6.2, Like my 6.7

BUT

I could be convinced to go back to gas - Really easy!!!

Wow... pretty cool. Would love to put one of those into a '96-97 t-bird

On the other hand, I'm already wondering if I should buy my SHO at the end of the lease and see what a 3.5L Ecoboost can really do. With a tune and some very mild intake and turbo upgrades, they can push near 500HP. It would be interesting to see what they can do with some REAL work

The lack of electronics on that 351 make it much more enticing.

That would've been a great replacement for the 351m I had in my '78 Bronco back in high school. Oh the trouble I could've gotten into with that motor...

Yea - I still got a original 304 CI 72 CJ5 that I have been meaning to restore at the ranch...

That might be a cool addition - ( Of course I could do a lot to the 304 for 10K also) -

On the other hand - I'd probably be dead or in jail within a month....

Awesome engine. I was thinking about doing something different and going Ford power for this project since LS powered cars are a dime a dozen.

I was thinking a crate coyote engine would be interesting. Aluminum block and HP/TQ that is right with teh current LS engines. Only downside is they are pretty big because of the over head cams, they take up quite a bit more space than the LS engines.

Also the Coyote engine management system hasnt been unlocked so there are no cheap engine management systems available.

This engine on the other hand....small footprint, way more power, no engine computer management system to worry about.....

hmmmmmm......

Only downside is the extra weight from the iron block vs the alum blocks of the Coyote and LS

Cant wait to slap a nice size blue oval sticker on the side of this car
