The motor makes gobbs of horsepower at high rpms, but the bottem end suffers. But that should not matter in a car that weighs half of what my truck weighs.

What would be tits would be build a 302 with 4-v Cleveland heads, and get a boss intake. Instant 300 hp but still you'd have to turn the piss out of it to realize those #s

Oh and thats some good loking work you've done.


Ummmm.... That information is not entirely correct...

Ford wanted a good V-6, but didn't have a platform to start from. So they did it the American way. They took a GM 3.8 and reverse engineered it. They solved all the stress issues and got a sturdy, reliable V-6 that had a good blend of torque and Hp. It just happens to be the equivalent of a 302 - 2 cylinders, but that is only coincidence. They later stroked it into the 4.2 that was available in all the '97-'04 (Heritage) F-150's.

And yes, the early Ford 3.8 was carbed, however the intake from those engines will not fit the post '97 heads you are referring to. The actual best combination is to take a 4.2, use the intake (minus the plenum) from a '95 Windstar, build an adapter to run three Solex 30's, and you have to run the timing cover from the 80's Granada (for the dizzy) to totally do away with the PCM. You can then replace the ford DurraSpark Ignition box (a.k.a. brain) and run the Mallory V-6 distributor and ignition box. Then add factory '95 Mustang shorty headers into a 3" "X" pipe scavenging exhaust system. This will get you into the low 400 Hp range...

It's been done. Just sayin...

If you're really entertaining the idea of the Ford 3.8, let me know. I know of some pushing out 600 Hp. I know, it doesn't sound possible to get 100 Hp per cylinder out of an American "utilitarian" engine, but it's true. There is an all aluminum version also, but I couldn't begin to tell you where to start looking. They also make two and four BBL carb'ed intakes to fit the post '97 engines. I keep referring to the post '97 engine because that was the last and best one in production. The earlier ones ('90-'96) had head gasket issues. It was like clockwork, every 80,000 miles you would blow a head gasket at #1 or #4 cylinder. They worked on the problem and stretched the range out to 120,000 miles, before they finally redesigned both the heads and block to accept a layered head gasket. The ending result yielded over 250,000 miles without issue.

By the way, I've been a Ford Master Tech since '99...

On second thought, please don't run the Ford 3.8. I'm tired of giving away all my tips only to be later accused of copying the very same people I assisted to begin with.

I was summating what I knew abought the ford 3.8. Yes I've replaced many a head gasket on them manily because some one drove the car they were driving through the ditch and tore the air dam off of it and ran the car hot, but they have a habit of blowing on there own. If I were going to run one I would stroke it to a 4.2 and run the fuel injection. Possibly the megasquirt kit, just because I want to build one. I also thought of adapting one to the tranny in Ilsa because I feal that the weight diference is acceptable for the power gains.

Hay Cobra build it your way, sorry for the hijack. Your work looks realy good. Also a 215 Buick v-8 aledgedly weighs 209# good luck finding one Since they were built from61-63 and came in the Special and the Skylark. It is a populsr swap for mg owners. It is also suposed to be the same motor used in the land rover but dont Quote me on that.
