Eh? Since when has Ford used Hemis in Mustangs?



For a while actually.

Simply put, unless there's people able to get ahold of modified true cobra engines, everyone esp. ford has been transplanting the 426's in there. esp. since we all know the non-sweet-talked power rating is indeed 800hp@8k rpm.

RossoCorsa, I'm certainly no Ford guy, but I've never seen or heard of Ford using 426 Hemis in 'Stangs. Unless it's a tube-frame race car, because of its size, I'd doubt a Hemi would fit. And 800 hp from a Hemi is a pretty built motor(far from stock).

Dr. Jun, I'm going to guess you're talking about the "Mod Motor" that is currently is use? While the 4V heads do use a hemispherical combustion chamber, the term"Hemi" is used for Chrysler engines.

That's my stand, unless you guys can set me straight......

....What the hell are you smoking?

Ford has never used a Mopar 426 Hemi in anything. They DID have a 429 SOHC racing only engine which was based on a Ford FE block, that had hemispheric chambers. And a few other engines with hemispheric chambers as well.

They also had the 427 Racing engine, and the 428 Cobra-Jet/Super Cobra Jet, all of which were based off of the FE block.

What would be the point of Ford putting Mopar engines into their cars?
Hell, do you really think that Mopar would have sold a primary competitor their best engines?

Unless you can cite some reliable sources, I'm laughing at this crock of shit.

*yawn* ...too early in the day for this but meh...

the 427 SOHC left drag racing when rules prohibited that engine from competing plain and simple. Some racers felt it was reliable, some did not. The engine was indeed successful during it's drag racing tour of duty, as was it's OHV cousin. The SOHC Ford was also the first engine to break the 200mph barrier through the 1/4 in a rail.

Chrysler's prototype DOHC Hemi engine has, at times, been rumoured to have made 800-900hp. But, nothing has ever been leaked from Dodge then or now that in any way shape or form proves this. We now know that the 427SOHC is generally in the 650hp (as it was then rated) neighborhood by todays standards. That means it was about 100hp or more under-rated by that days standards which wouldn't make the 800hp claims on the Hemi too outrageous. And, as the DOHC Mopar was strictly a prototype, there is no telling how close to a "production" engine those specs were. In the same range as the 427SOHC would have been a safe bet IMO.

As far as the resource where I found out about the HEMI's being transplanted into various mustangs despite space between shock towers barely fitting the 428 (and the 426H being wider than it) I basically saw it on a show on either Spike or Speed. Mainly because they had one transplanted in an *cough* Ellenwhore. I'm trying to find the vid right now. Anyone know of anything more reliable than Veoh?

As stated above, there's still a lot of controversy as to whether or not the 426's made the now acclaimed 800hp@8krpms which jumpstarted the value of most stock HEMI-loaded vehicles like the roadrunner and 'cuda into their current 130k+ pricerange. I've seen some shows and articles stating it was accurate, and others stating at most it was putting out approx. 600hp+.

I'm not too certain as to the specs of the vehicles up in question. But this swap has indeed been done, and since it seems to have piqued quite a bit of interest, I'll start looking into this more.

I'm just lookin' for the vids at the moment. Gives me somethin' to do in between waiting for parts from the ship containers and juggling classes. lol. perhaps it was a different engine transplant, or perhaps it was a different setup. Either way, I'll find out for certain give or take a few days.
