HiPerformanceDiesel.com 1978 Ford 521ci Sled Pulling Truck
8,800 RPM and 935 HP. Stock 460 block 30 over and 521ci stroker with Flow
Technologies EX514 heads and a Pro-Systems Dominator. This is the engine
break in run before we had a bed on her. This was one heck of a max effort
stock block engine and it lasted 13 hooks before the #7 rod bearing spun
and caused catastrophic damage. Also notice the 4 link rear suspension with
no leaf springs... that is riding on Air Bags! This was build 1 of 2. The
next build was much more interesting!
