Except when the 460s stroked to a 514 and is pushing 600 horses which is planted in a rig with over 14" of lift and a one ton drivetrain

Well guy.. with the stroked 460, you have wind resistance amoung other things but... sure let me just stroke my 302, thorw a blower on it and about 300 psi shot of nos. Everything can be beat... but a applaude your 460. as for the GIRL who has a 400m.... this shows your a girl no offence... you should have done your home work... because a 351/400m is a p.o.s that came with only a 2 barrel intake and is as sad as the chevys 305. I wouldnt be thorwing around a 400m but every thing else is good.. just thought i would say that its not a smart motor to rebuild.

'99 f-250 supercab. 5.4 which suits me well. At 27 when I bought it I thought i needed time to grow into a diesel. a guy has to have a goal.
'78 cj-5 levi's edition. Complete body off restore. 304 bored .60 over. 35" thornbirds on a 3 speed manual. My toy that will never be finished.
'65 cj-5A tuxedo park. Getting ready to start this one. only thing I'm missing is the front bumper and the rims. The windows work perfect and everything needs gone through.
'01 honda xr-650l. enduro, really fun toy that goes places I cannot get the jeep in to, or think of taking the truck. My first "street" bike. figured it would be funner than spending $ on chrome, 'cause stupid is as stupid does!

He, mr thumper...why you doggin the 400??? Have you owned one? They may not be the most popular Ford engine but dont say it's a sad engine. You can do alot to it....so leave us 400 owners alone. We like the engine and it does what we need it to do....

Okay, they don't approve flame wars in here so I'll keep my comments short and be done with it. DUDE, I know your new but what does a stroked engine have to do with wind resistance!? I assume you're referring to my lift but your statement as read came off as something a mentally retarded/developmentally delayed individual might make. And the sexist statement was decidedly uncool. I applaud any girl who drives a ford truck with pride, no matter what her engine is. So why don't you set back, mellow out, and try harder to rate on the "plays well with others" meter.

And don't forget about my 82' stepside that is soon to be getting (on an engine stand in the shop) a 4v cleveland on a 150hp shot of nos (and some. . . ok many other mods if my dad lets me buy them, i do have the money).

Whats else can i brag about, lets see hear, i have done everything myself (with help for the bigger jobs), it has a 2/4 drop (headlight height is about at superduty bumper height) and handles as good as any 5.0L stang, its got a toploader 4-speed good to 700+hp with only a racing clutch and good u-joints, complete rebuilt 9incher, 3 true dual exhaust with nice shiny 4in tips, totally redon interior with tauras bucket seats, sony head unit& compontents and 2 jl 10" subs and alpine amp, free steering wheel.

Upcoming mods(next 6 months):new oak wood bed with chrome strips, black with a strong red pearl paint job.

Hows that? (oh yeah so far its been 300hrs of work not including the upcoming motor swap and possible gear change).

Especially that Ford truck. That sounds like a pretty awesome truck.

Well, the only thing I've got to brag about my truck is that it's a one of a kind.

A '91~2~3 Forzda Explavajo XLTLX

For those of ya who might not know, It was a '92 Mazda Navajo LX, and after a slight altercation with a six point buck, it now got parts from a '91 & '93 Ford Explorer XLT, hence the combo name.
