Hey i am always been about speed and racing. i used to drive a car, but moving to a truck for size convenience. i know ford makes great engines. I was wondering does ford have anything that can run with a 528 HEMI engine that puts out 610 horsepower and 650 pounds of torgue. The reason i am asking is becasue i always liked ford and my friend dodge. he has a dakota with the 528 hemi installed in it. the beast flies and i just wanted to know if there was anything the ford makes that could run with it!!!!
If you have unlimited money project big bronco on some site (dont have link) bought an all aluminum 460 that can be bored out to over 600CI...I'm sure with that a super charger, tuned decently and some really strong axles you could put out 1300HP/1400ft/tq
Oh and it will fit in any of the trucks F-100 + I'd do it in a 70's model if it was me doing it.

Ford made one back in the 60's that out performed your HEMI. It was called the 427SOHC (also a HEMI). 657HP@7500rpm out of the crate with no mods. Dodge is coming in a little late eh? You can also stretch the 460 out to 800+ cubes with a Ford Racing Block.

427 SOHC, huh? How many of them were made? Can you still get one? didn't think so.
Seriously though, one off engines that were once available don't really count. their were probably only a handfull of them built to begin with.
As to the many modded lightnings comment, I doubt it.

the 427 SOHC or "cammer" as it was often called was originally designed for use in NASCAR but it didnt fare to well so Ford decided to sell it to people for use in drag racing. it powered a few A/FX and B/FX cars, i cant remember the exact names but i know they were in a 65 mustang type funny car A/FX? racing series and a cougar type funny car in the B/FX? racing series. these engines would produce "625-650 hp" but we really know they under rated and its more like 800+
It didn't fare too well, because NASCAR outlawed it before it even hit the track. They knew no one else could even be competitive.
Ford offers a 514 crate motor which is conservatively rated at 600 hp. I've seen a few places that actually dyno'd one of these, fresh, and they made well over 600 hp. These were with the old CJ aluminum heads. The new SCJ aluminum heads are supposed to be worth around 75 hp at this power level. One article I read had this crate engine with the SCJ heads (non-ported) and a Comp roller cam putting out over 700 hp.
