All of them not even a question
351m , 400 & 6.0 weren’t so good
429 Cobra Jet
300_6cyl. Was the best Ford ever built. !!
I know a feller that had a van with one, at like 150,000 miles never ever changed his oil, always used and added mobil#1 asked me to change his oil filter”he did every 3000 miles,at around 175,000 miles I opened engine to repair a rocker arm, and that engine looked new, any other 300 I opened rockers had groove’s from sludge.(funny what you do remember )
My industrial work vehicle can tow 60,000-lbs and it has a single barrel carb Ford 300ci 6-cyl and a C-6. I hauled 26,400 with it just a few hours ago.
The ones that start with LS.
Lost S..? 😂
LS= Loser Setup
I’m with Acosta and Cook
427 side oiler
In cars the 428 cobra jet and 351boss. Trucks 360, 390 and 460.
351 Windsor . Fast and tough , loud and proud .
The Cleveland was much better
I’ll take my 408 over a Cleveland anyway. Ford just didn’t make enough c so parts cost to much
428 s c j
Personally, I liked the 400 small block.
Fu and the big motor 427 S O H C
351 Cleveland, the Boss motors
428 Cobra Jet
none of fords
352 and 302 more power n more durability under pressure!
He ones that start lol
I would pick but that kinda a contradict of terms you said ford and good motor in the same sentence MOPAR RULES!!!!!!!
I have both and honestly the mopar is a boat anchor compared to the ford
Whatcha smoking Joel Odegaard
So Joel, you think the 426 HEMI, 440 Commando and a 383 are just good for boat anchors? Show me a stock Ford that could outperform a 426 HEMI!
The evolution of the 302
427 cammer, then 383 stroker. Mopar guy but those are my picks
The ones built by the dodge brothers
I raced a lot of ford’s in my life and saw a lot of snapped rods at high rpms, in the 6500 range.
You,,,didn’t polish them…right.??
the fords snap a lot of rods. I had at the time a 440 duster, I never snapped a rod at those rpm’s. I am a mopar guy. But I like a lot of cars
and yes mine were polished. I miss that duster.
I have a superbee currently. 440 some head work and a high duration cam. 4 speed, dana rear 456’s. Solid tappet cam. I do get sick of lashing valves but I love solid lifter cams. I race it once a month down here in southern florida. Only thing that sucks is I miss living in NY can cruising in cold dry winter days. I would get at least 5 -20 more horsepower in those conditions.
Funny ever one is posting Eng from 1967 to 1971 nothing Present day
429 CJ !
300 six can be strong also and is pretty damn tuff and never under estimate a mopar
429 boss was nice but a bitch to work on just no room dam near had to pull fenders off to change plugs lot of busted knuckles but good times
Yeah, that engine should have gone into a Torino.
427 without a doubt. Boss 429 was stout also.
They forgot the 427 shoc
429 Super CJ.
428 crank in a 427. Easily streetable 700hp
427 FE side oiler
This was great but you forgot the 427 shoc engine probably one of the best engines all those on the 429 SVT
The one that I use as a mooring.
289 was a strong little motor, Carroll Shelby loved them
The,,Cleveland,,,After,You build it,,,just a little better..!
Hypo 289 had one that would crank up to 11000 rpms in my 68 sport bronco
Cammer!!! Mickey Thompson ruled in 69 the Boss brought the end to Ford power in funny cars shame they stopped developing the awesome Cammer
Wesome video, but should have had the 390.it over the years had many high performing combos! Luv those fords
BOSS 9 and you can SOHC it to me
A functional one…
A Chevy engine…
428 Cobra Jet or the 5.0 HO EFI. The Boss 429 had a vast amount of potential with a larger carburetor, more aggressive camshaft and free-flowing exhaust. BOSS 302 was a bad ass engine as well.
The boss 429
5.0, 435 crank hp off the showroom floor and over 650 possible with a supercharger and still can be a daily driver.
boss 302 ha ha ha ☺☺☺
Ford 3.0L V8 Cosworth Formula 1 engine dominated the sport for 25 years.
Ford 3.0L V8 DFV Formula 1 engine dominated the sport for 25 years.
It’d be interesting to see how many blue lemons (ford) have had an LS (Chevrolet) engine put in them vs how many blue lemons have had blue lemon motors as far as hot rod/custom cars go.
Has nothing to do with quality it’s all about expense and availability. Chevy basically puts the same engine in everything for years and years ford is constantly changing and improving so the aftermarket can’t keep pace in a cost efficient manner. Ford makes a way better engine always has always will. But Chevy guys confuse quantity for quality.
A well built 351C can blow the SBC 350 off of the road.
Connie Kalitta became the first to try and sort out the mystery that was the SOHC. Connecting-rod problems dogged development from the start. But Ford’s hunch about Kalitta might have been right, as he became the first person to hit 200 mph at an AHRA national event in 1965.
Pink told us the problem with the Cammer was not the chain—a problem he fixed with chromoly links—it was with the block. “[This engine] was meant to handle maybe 750 hp, and we were getting 2,500 hp out of it,” Pink says. “We would be lucky to get four runs for qualifying and four for eliminations from a block. If we did, the crank would be laying in the bottom of a broken-up block.”
The one in my car of course
They didn’t mention the 390!
No Cleveland? Of these I’d have to choose the little work horse 289
Ken Houck,Dom Houck,
Shouda’ had a V8…
Boss 429 and boss 351
Ford FE 427 Top Oiler
The one in the junk yard
The 4.9 liter inline 6 cylinder, it almost will never die….
I would say my favorite engine is a 351 Windsor. I had one in my ’76 Ford F 250
Is that big block a 429?
428 cj or 427 sohc , I’d even take 429 boss!!! Not picky any of !!!
1969 429 hemi heads
Trick question right?
Ok I’ve got to be honest the ford 390 hands down all around
1969 428 Super Cobra Jet
The 427 Cobra Jet .
Ford was told to tone it down , State Troopers couldn’t catch it .
That’s how it got replaced by the 428 Cobra Jet .
The 351 C – Cleveland was good engine .
Best were the Ford’s powered by the Dodge Brothers .
With more development the Boss 429 could have been something pretty good
