    Ford is phasing out the 347 stroker now they are offering I think it is a 362 not really sure what the displacement is saw it on tv yesterday you should go with that new motor it was making over 400 hp

    It's funny now so many guys run Chevy engines in Ford cars. I guess they don't want to be seen in a Chevy.

    Or just cant find a good body to put their Chevy motor in. I guess I don't blame them too much. I'd probably use me a good looking Ford body too if I was a Chevy guy.
