:stupidmillpondmonster said:actually who cares about a few H.P., torque is what gets a 4x4 down the trail. :thumbup
well it's basic reasoning. the 351W never got more than 210 according to http://www3.telus.net/cbradley/Engine_Specifications.htmlIBlairI said:That's kinda depressing if it is true. This seems like all speculation though. Look up the word Ad Hominem.
umm. i've been to english class i know what it means. but i don't get why ur saying it. :shrug just cuz i'm a kid that doesn't know much about cars?IBlairI said:Look up the word Ad Hominem.
yes. the other motors probably don't have near the torque of the 351. also, without knowing much about those other engines, i will say that they rev quite a bit higher then a 351 which also contributes. there are really so many factors here you can't compare. the euro engines are lighter and have a lower rotating mass which gives more power, somewhat at the cost of ultimate durability which is more desirable in a truck engine. cams, intakes, compression ratio, exhaust, blah blah blah, i don't even know where to begin.BibBlu94 said:Not to be critical but seeing these HP numbers of 150 HP for a 351 V8 or 150 HP for 5.8 L I wonder what Ford was not doing back in the day?
Two cases in point I own a 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 with 154 HP out of a 2.5 L (165 CI)
V-6 (the aluminum block weighs 60lbs!) and a Jag XJ-S with 300 HP out of a 5.3L V-12.
My truck is a '94 Bronco 5.8L. Am I missing something here?
