Me and my buddy picked a longblock up and sat it in a bed and both of us have proven capable of lifting 300 lbs each and it took all we had!

valdor...at the end of production in the mid-'90s (for F-150s, anyway), the 300 was putting out 145 horse and 265 ft-lbs, and that was with fuel injection. I've read different figures depending on year and transmission selection, but I believe the above numbers are a good ballpark.

Thumbs up power of 300 I6

Thankyou for the info, i am surprised they didnt manage to squeese more power from that motor, but then again it is old school tech... Right up my alley. torq wise it was then on par with the 4.2 v6 no? and in a work truck i feel torque is the number.

I'm a fan of the 4.2L, but it doesn't touch the 4.9L when it comes to down low pulling power.

The 4.2L will run circles around the 4.9L though.

For speed and mileage the 4.2 is the obvious choice.
I own a truck not a car, The 300 went in 1.5 ton trucks. and will tow better than a 302.
Which motor...depends on what you do.

As a co-fan of the inline sixes, i thought you may be interisted in this. asiide from GM's 4.2l straight six, the only other Gas inline six motors still used in trucks are (sadly) from Japan. Toy still uses a 4.5 l I6 in their Land Cruiser series 70 pickup Ute (222 hp and 286 ft/lbs) and the Nissan Patrol SUV has a 4.8l I6 (256 HP and 315 ft/lbs). Both relative modern engines of course.. If it wouldnt have been almost blasphemious i cant help how an old school F150 would go with the Nissan 4.8... Just couldnt do it though

Shame Ford (or any of the Big Three) doesn't have a solid gasoline I6 motor anymore. I'm a fan of the I6 design.

Note the relatively "low" HP but the solid Tq numbers on the 4.8L and 4.5L. I know it's argued a motor will produce what it's built to do, but it seems to me I6 motors generate more torque down low than similar sized motors / six cylinders.
I also couldn't do it. I'm happy with my 300 anyway; it suits my needs just fine. Of course I'd like to have 350 Hp, but I'd just get in trouble with that anyway.

Like wise Bill, Like wise...... my dream 300 I6 would make 300hp and 400ft/lbs.
