    The arguement that I always hear is that the chebbie is 5.7 or 6.0 and the ford is a 4.6

    But why would supercharged or not matter? Ford is willing to invest some of its capital into R&D, that is why we have seen SOHC&DOHC and factory Supercharged Fords. Dodge and Chevy stay with what works...cubes.

    Think how badass a factory supercharged DOHC zo6 would be. It would be a supercar!

    I once read in the paper that Chevy has been losing customers because its in the buisness of making MONEY not CARS.

    A car is more than a product, we have emotional ties to it, its like a pet. A fast, good looking pet!

    You can make any engine fuel injection if you have the money....just tap the intake runners for fuel injecters and run a throttle body up top with an elbow intake and you're set. There's a guy here with a '65 coupe who has an '03 Cobra engine in it, but he has an Edelbrock Victor intake mated to it with this fuel injection setup on it, with a carb breather on top...at a glance it looks just like a carbed motor.

    Nope...they were with the Paul's Automotive crew at a cruise in we had. They had 2 '65s, i think one of them is actually Paul's and has full '03 Cobra drivetrain and suspension, the other car was an open track car with a 4V 4.6. To correct myself, it wasn't an '03 engine in THAT car, but it was a 4V 4.6, just with the crazy carb intake/fuel injection setup on it but with no supercharger. Paul's car makes 500+ i believe. If you click their site http://www.paulsautomotiveengineering.com/index.htm that's Paul's car at the top, and the other car was just like it only blue instead of white.

    basic knowledge for installing goodies, no cutting done anywhere on the car for the motor/trans to fit, you can use an AOD driveshaft and have it shortened and a new yoke put on, as well as build your own serpentine setup from the 5.0 parts like i did. its a straight forward swap, probably just like dropping in a 351 but a little bigger :)

    As for EFI 460, how about an EFI 473 fox, my build was based off this guy's except mines carbed so my motor sounds almost exactly the same. This is a vid of the first startup of his car.

    I said PRODUCTION car. The T-Bolt was built purely for drag racing. If you wanted to include specialty cars I would include The Baldwin Motion Phase III Vega.Can you say 9's!!:D But this was the car that killed Baldwin Motion by the government!!:(

    Actually, i believe the Thunderbolt was a production car straight out of Dearborn, whereas the Baldwin Motion cars were all tuner cars, straight from Baldwin Motion in NY (which by the way is still out there, still making cars, just nowhere near as mean). The Thunderbolts just didn't come with a warantee.

    True, they had no warrunty and had to be picked at dearborn if you wanted one. Baldwin motion cars "were" street legal cars! Dude you dont know. They now make 69 Camaro's,(Baldwin Motion) the new ones you can buy. They come with Merlin motors w/620HP. And have a super charged version w/ 1000+HP

    Yeah i knew they were making cars but i didn't know about that. Actually (and some may laugh on this one) but for most of my life my dream car was a '70 BM 454 Camaro, but these days it's more like a 351C Pantera GT5.
