I know it's not pretty, but this thing is a beast. Plus, I can get 17mpg @ 65 and 14mpg @ 80mph. :toothless




My new 465cfm 4bbl. Just about the perfect size. 390 was too small, 600 was too big.


Exhaust manifolds from the EFI 300 to 2.5" exhaust.


My newest addition. The DUI ignition and plugs gapped to 55. I love it.

pulled the motor a couple weeks ago in my new to me 95 to correct an oil pressure prob from the previous owners rebuild (mis placed fifty cent gasket on the oil pump pick up tube). Otherwise nice rebuild with all new internals, Cop Cams roller, GT40 heads, etc. I think i was more annoyed it was painted blue then anything but at least it wasnt Chevrolet orange lol (sorry to you guys with blue engines :D) I detailed it out in the proper Ford gray. Nothing real fancy here but proper color now . . . oh and proper oil pres :cool:

This one is from the last time the 300 needed some TLC



Years of fighting the urge to swap my 427 windsor from the mustang to the Bronco are about to get the best of me I believe.

I hope soon that I'll be staring at a 7.3L turbo diesel, bucket list item.

Thats a clean setup, most of the diesel swaps I've seen have shit layin every, crap zip tied all over.

thanks, There is no reason for that! It is 100% a like for like swap, the only thing I needed to change under hood other than motor mounts, was the inner fenderwells, as the diesel ones had all the necessary bracketry for its added pieces.
