Better To Under Promise and Over Deliver
« on: September 23, 2019, 01:05:08 PM »
Guess what was sitting on my desk this morning. :m :m
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

To top it all off,I only need to buy 8 push rods!! The original intake push rods  were the exact length needed. How lucky is that!  Trend will have the length needed for the exhausts to me in less than a week. 10.2" should be shelf stock.

It won't be a twin turbo beast or a 6 cylinder turbo subi at 360 inches but when the 434 version hits the sand it should be a lot of usable HP/tq..

The short 3.26" stroke will make a LOT less than the 4.125 I'm used to . Gonna have to drive it like a YXZ.

looked to keep up quite well to me  ;D

when i say twin turbo v6 i mean the stock ecoboost twin turbo v6 out of the ford truck. 91 octane,properly tuned, good to 500 hp pretty easy on stock parts.

factory specs ( " factory" )

3.5L EcoBoost® Twin-Turbocharged V6   375 HP   470 lb.-ft.
H.O. EcoBoost® Twin-Turbocharged V6   450 HP   510 lb.-ft.
 and that's on pump gas


The second generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6 (codename D35) was introduced for the 2017 Ford GT, revealed at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January, as well as the 2017 F-150, 2018 Expedition and 2018 Navigator.[78] It produces up to 647 hp (482 kW) [79] paired with a seven-speed semiautomatic transmission. This engine theoretically replaces the 5.4 L supercharged modular V8 from the last generation Ford GT. The GT was on an 11-year hiatus and returned in 2016 for the 2017 model year.
