Cool. :)
My current 2003 Mach 1 Has the DOHC engine, about 325HP. She definately moves. WOW, mine is only 281 Cubic inch (4.6L) and gets 25+MPG!! Definate improvement, but that would be cool to have a torque monster like that in a newer mustang!!!

7.5 to 1 compression must have been pretty good being gasoline of that era was only about 75 or 80 octaine. They called a sherman tank a Ronson because it went up on the first hit. :eek2:

Somewhere I have a picture of a Ford Mustang with one of those stuffed in it. I'll see if I can dig it up. :)

Thats pretty interesting. I always thought that the Sherman tanks all used Continental radial aircraft engines mounted in the rear. I researched it a little bit and found that not only were the radial engines used, Chrysler also built a 30 cylinder engine that was 5 six cylinder car engines married togeather in a pentagon configuration.

Packard was in it too, they used just about anything that fit the chassis and had enough power.

If fords DOHC V-8 is anything like the one in the dodges I never want one. just put a set of head gaskets on an '00 ram w/ 80,000 the timing chain setup sucks! :mad: Goodbye back yard mechanics :!: I'll take an old chevy small block anyday :cheers:

I'm not aware of any DOHC V8 that could have made it's way into a 2000 Ram. I'm not a Dodge guy, but to my knowledge the only two V8's available for a Ram in 2000 were the 318 and the 360. Those two engines did have kind of a crappy timing chain setup from what I've heard, the nylon coated teeth wear off the spockets and result in a lot of chain slack.

As for the Ford 4.6 DOHC, they are very reliable, fuel efficient, and powerful for their displacement. My '95 Lincoln Mark VIII has a 280 hp 4.6 DOHC engine, and it is the finest engine that I have ever owned. I will conceed that the small block chevy in my camaro is indeed a lot easier to work on.

The sherman tank also came with a continental R975c1 radial aircraft engine. it produced 400 hp. the Ford V8 was much better.

The Ford was actually cut down to 8 cylinders from an aircraft engine that was a V-12.
