I was thinking about it, i actually went to a ford galixie that has a 390, and its locked up, so im not gunna mess with that rotating assembly.

Same with the 460 over here! Look at this artical, a 460 stroked to a 557! Racing heads, a cam, high rise intake and a 4bbl gets you around 900HP and 1,100HP on spray, count me in!

Nice truck, id do what theyre saying and make it a 390. I have an old 360 full of water behind my house. When it did run it was a good motor. Too bad its in the scrap pile along with its c6 tranny. Need money for other things and its just accumulating space.

So far im going to stay 360. i have the oil pan off but i dont want to pull the bottom end apart. i think the engine was refreshed at one point from those yellow markings. Runs good, no bad wear or knocks... not gunna take something apart if it works really good. So, oh well. performance increase wouldn't be to dramatic too. You kinda need a performance cam/intake and carbs to compliment the increased compression, and im not budgeting that for this.

And, i got my licence today.

You had mentioned gas mileage of fe engines. Dads truck, 1966 f250, two wheel drive, 4 speed, 352 engine, got 8. Also, he drove that truck from 1970 to 2002. 32 years, his only truck.

They drink. Only real complaint of these trucks. I bought it knowing this. And im gearing it the best i can to help get in the teens. FE's are nice, cheap, torquey engines, that not many people seem to know about.

Options are:

1989-1999 thunder bird/cougars
1992-1999 Lincoln mark viii's
1999-2004 mustang svt cobras.

I contacted a guy and going to look at a thunderbird irs complete minus coils and brakes. Has  2.73's and a locker.

Thunderbirds/cougars have 7.5" or 8.8" center housings. Both 28 spline cv axles. Lincoln's have 8.8's.

The svt's are the best, all aluminum arms/housing ( 8.8 ) locker, bigger brakes, and beefy 31 spline axles.

Buying can get after market 28 spline shafts good for 650+ and I'll be lucky if my engine puts out half that.

Hay Kid,
Coming along nicely. So switching from the original motor to the 32v 4.6 with fuel injection, WOW, major change there, I think those motors are rated at 400hp stock. Curios on how you are going to seal the bottom of the cab? I sure can tell you what doesn't work, LOL. I did the same thing to my jeep on cleaning and prepping. Believe it or not, my jeep was solid and little rust when I got it. Did all the body work also. Now 15 years later it all rusted out, but then again it's a daily driver even in the winter time. I did my wife's car also when she got it almost 10 years ago, using a different method on rust proofing. Here car is holding up pretty good. I usually run my vehicles till I can't and are ready for the scrap yard. I hauled away 2 cars to the scrap yard in my jeep by cutting them up, LOL.

Well anywho... On my jeep after I prepped I used roofing tar over the paint, didn't work too good. Then I tried that spray on bed liner from a rattle can, that crap don't work too good. At that point I'm cutting out the floor for fresh metal and used the paint on bed liner, didn't work too good either. So I sand blasted the metal, that sucked, and used the paint on bed liner on the raw metal. The sand blasting gave it something to grab good, worked longer then I expected but it rusted through and came off. My wife's car on the other hand, is still solid underneath with the coating still on. On her car, I kept it simple since it was rust free when she got it. I used an SOS pad to clean the underneath, the the paint on bed liner. No rust holes or spots on the floor pans with rust. I'm thinking that a real good primer/sealer will do the trick with the enamel paint, then the paint on bed liner. I'll be doing that to my next jeep I build up. It's the gold one in my tank vids, that will replace my current one. I'm thinking an epoxy marine paint for the primer or maybe an aircraft epoxy paint. Well hope it helps.
