Exact same set up and conditions as the previous Exhaust clip video, but this time it's without

Ford f250 351W 5.8l w/Mods
This is my 1997 F250 HD 2WD, the last of the square body's. Like if you
Idle @ 11:35
Rev @ 12:35
10-90 MPH @ 13:10
Runs a 15.8 ET in the quarter with a rolling start because of wheel hop. I
will be getting a new time soon as I can and I am hoping to drop up to a
second. When I get ladder bars I'll be able to do a hard launch and that
should drop some time too.
*Notice, during the revving of engine, the blue must be a camera glare
through the moisture, because the engine doesn't burn any oil and I never
see any blue coming out of the Exhaust.

Next upgrades in planned order:
1) Ladder bars
2) Body work
3) Methanol injection
4) Zex Wet kit, planned 75 shot, hence the methanol injection.
5) Find a Dynomax,
powerdyne, or vortech SC kit.
6) Remote turbo?
7) Just trying to reach MAX safe block potential of 500 RWHP.
351w & 5spd swap - Maiden Voyage
very first cruise after the 351w engine swap, and m5r2 5spd swap from the
automatic, engine has about 280k miles on it removed from a 95 f250, with a
dropped Exhaust valve leaking rear
main oil seal, leaking valves, worn valve seals, worn rings, just a junk
engine, but the purpose was to swap the engine in and get it running , then
rebuild it with a 408 stroker and a turbo
351 Cleveland in 55 Ford : Nasty Cam + BIG exhaust = MUSIC
Spotted this old '55 Ford, pretty straight, but obviously no minty garage
queen original or fancy restored show car. Hmmm... cop wheels & fat
traction bars? Tracked down owner, talked '55s for a bit (had a black Vic
way back when) & asked him if he'd mind popping the hood for pix.
Him "OK, but first whatcha think's in there?"
Me "Uh, 272, 292, maybe 312 Interceptor?"
Him "Nope, that was long ago. Put a built 390 in there, blew it up. Built a
427, blew that up too. This is a *real* motor here. 351 Cleveland, son."
Me "OK... Wouldn't wanna fire that up, would ya?"
Too bad I didn't get a clip when he barked the tires on the way out of the
lot, heh heh.
