How about either a coyote 5.0 or a 3.5 Egobooster into a SWB dent. Then slam it to the ground. But for me I'd keep the TIB front and build a 9" with 373 lockers. Then I'd also back up the power plant with a good heavy duty 6 speed manual. That to me would be bad a**.

There's two or three '52-'56 Fords around here with mod engines in them. The next time I see one at a show, I'll snap a picture. Some of them are really sweet.

As for the 427 SOHC, I don't care if it's been done a million times or not, that's just kick butt no matter how you look at it!

I've only ever seen one dentside with a cammer, and I think it's pretty darn safe to say cammer swaps of any kind haven't been done a million times. I don't think even 5000 of those engines even exist.

I was fortunate enough in my early years to have had the chance to work on quite a few. I worked for a man that is probably the most experienced on cammers, he had put them in about a dozen vehicles, many of them blown, had solved the chain issue, and drove them regularly. Back in the day when Carroll Shelby was still kicking he had us build him a cammer.

Been a while but at one time there was a company making aluminum cammer heads and if you have to any FE block can be used so you don't have to spend the huge bucks on an original. Also there are/were aluminum FE blocks available and aluminum blower manifolds exist for them. So if you can find the parts a reliable all aluminum blown cammer is possible.

Shoot now I want one, an all aluminum NA high compression cammer in a custom AWD Daytona Cobra . Pete Brock is a local, chatted him up a few times, I used to be big into 510s also, I'm sure he'd get a kick out of that.

Any day now supercharged modular engines in older trucks will have been done a million times though.

I figure only two really hard aspects of putting a cammer in a dentside. Gathering the parts, going to be a lot of searching and cost a pretty penny. And the heads are HUGE, simply ginormous. This will cause real problems with brake master interference, and AC if it has it. The brake master issue would be such that I think just having the master in it's original location would be tough if not impossible, and no way a vacuum booster of any kind would fit. I'd think using hydroboost instead and raising the mounting higher up on the firewall would do the trick.

You have a dent with a cammer?

Or do you mean you have one with a boss nine?

If so, I'd like to see that.

HIO Silver is it black by chance, the one an only that I'd seen was black and IIRC 4wd?

No.. no...no.. by "I got one" I meant an engine we have never seen in a Dent (or Bump for that matter) and a light bulb came on.. a Boss 429 or a Boss Nine.
