    Ok sarge I have a good motor for you. The only Ford motor I really enjoyed building as my father tlked of his uncles. It is a flathead . Stiil some parts to dress it up and power to spare as well as a statement at the show circuit.Split the pipes, triple dueces and on and on. I built one for a 49 Ford police special restore and on my did that sled fly. We did burnouts for 300 yards. Sadly my father sold it out from under me. Not angry , he needed the cash to pay the mortgage. One of the pitfalls of following religious beliefs on birth control.

    hmm i will have to look into that coach...sadly as much as i dont want to put a 5.0 in it i may have been talked into it by the simple fact i like to blow fast cars up (by accident) and rebuilding a 5.0 would be cheaper than almost any other ford motor out there

    Build it right and try not to rev it to high and you shouldn't blow it. My buddy who uses his as a track only car has over a year of hardcore track use and has yet to rebuild anything on the motor

    i plan on having it built right, im going to have a professional actually build the motor since i havent ever done something like that, the whole revving thing though..that could be an issue, i love hearing the sound of beefed up motors lol

    Just don't run it to high in the red and you'll be fine. I completing understand your issue though just learn the motors limit
