Jeez, those are good numbers! The excursion makes about 570 ft-lbs stock, and I imagine with a tuner, those numbers would increase.

Very good for a mild gas-fed engine.

I am 37. I have owned 3 fords.

1 1983 ltd 302 engine great car . The insurance company bought it after it was attacked by a chevy.

2 1974 f100 390 it was bought new by my dad. I have plans to get it driving again.

3 1978 f150 351m I drive this every day. I traded a gmc for it I was going to part out . I changed the filters and topped off the fluids upon delivery. Then proceeded to get the tailpipe welded the po cut to make louder. I then changed a leaky wheel cylinder and it was like a beast.

1. 78 F150, 2WD, 351M, C6. At 260K, I Converted to 460 with dual pipes. Pass anything but a gas station. Truck nickle and dimed me to death so I sold her. She's my first true love and I'd buy her back in a heartbeat if I could find her.
2. 92 Mustang LX, 4 cyl, 5 speed, no ac. First new car. Finally sold it year before last with over 200K miles.
3. 93 Ranger XLT, 3.0L V6, AOD, X-Cab. Paid $1000 for it because it had over 200K miles on it. Rebuilt the tranny and drove it another 70K before someone in a van decided to drive over my engine. Got $7500 for it after it was totaled
4. 86 Bronco EB Edition. 6" lift 35x12.5x15 BFG MT (pre KM). 351W, AOD, LOVED to beat the **** out of this rig. MUCH FUN!!! Traded it for a jeep.

6. 97 Expedition EB Edition - 5.4L, AOD Power EVERYTHING. Super Fancy stuff for me and my X.
7. 98 F150 X-Cab 4x4 - 4.6L, 5 speed. LOVED this truck but, traded it for...
8. 01 F350 Lariat PSD, CC, SB, 4x4. Truck lasted < 2 weeks. Damn deadbeat dealership selling me a lemon.
9. 71 Bronco - Drove to Denver CO to pick up this rig. Sold it to a buddy of mine for what I had in it. He still has it.
10. 69 Ford Bronco - Bought a rust bucket to salvage good parts. Sold the rest. Trashed what needed to be trashed.
11. 73 Bronco - OLD YELLER. Original NM Bronco was virtually rust free. Took it apart to do a frame off restore. Funds fell short and so did my X wifes patience. Ended up selling it off in parts. VERY SAD!!!
12. 71 Bronco - BIG RED. Some of you may remember seeing pictures of this rig. Bought it in Portland OR from a mechanic who told me I'd be able to drive it home (To NM). Rig lasted 30 minutes and had NO BRAKES. So, I trailered it home to find out the engine was also blown. Buyer beware...
13. 84 Bronco. Parts donor for my new 71 POS Bronco. Took the 351W and had Buddlongs build a SICK 300+ HP beast. Sold the rest.
14. 72 Bronco - ROLLED YELLER. Picked up from a buddy of mine who rolled his BEAUTIFUL Yellow Bronco. He had LOTS of work already done to her. But, the body was a complete total. So, I pulled it apart. Kept what I wanted for my 71 and parted out the rest.
15. 99 Ranger - 4.0L, AOD, X Cab 4x4. Just wanted something to drive to work and back. This truck had a strange life on it so didn't drive very nice. Sold it to X's cousin.

21. 73 Bronco - I picked up in San Diego as my BEACH CRUISER. Just SOLD it.
22. 04 Mustang Convertible - Traded for #25. Gets 22MPG and it's a fun little ride...
23. 93 Bronco Custom - 5.0L/Auto. Picked this little guy up for $800.00 this past weekend for my GF and her kids to have a ride in. It's leaking from everywhere but, slowly but surely, we'll get it all fixed up for her...
24. 2000 Excursion XLT 4x4 - 5.8L/Auto. Seats 9 w/ cargo. GF and I have 8 total so we needed something BIG!!!
25. 94 Bronco XLT - 5.8L V8/E4OD. Stock for now. Have ProComp 6" lift in garage. Need some 35s on rims so I can get it installed. Gonna be my driver for a long time!!!
26. 2006 Ford Explorer 4x4 V8. Replaced the 2000 Excursion with this. Fits almost ALL the kids and is more reliable and better on petrol.
27. 2000 Ford F250 Crew Cab Lariat 4x4 V10. Just picked it up this past weekend. Traded my 94 Bronco for it.
28. 2005 Ford F150 X-Cab Lariat 4x4 5.4L. #27 turned out to be a very bad deal and I lost over $7K in it. So, I had to go a different direction.
