My new 460 in my 1971 LTD. C-6, 2200 stall, 2.75:1 ring and pinion, about 400 hp 530 lb. ft. Car has a huge amount of power. It short shifts(4500 rpm) and hesitates because of a heavy secondary spring(black) and still accelerates like mad. I'm going to do some carburetor tuning and find a way to shift manually while holding the camera, then post a new video. I'm pretty sure it will hit 100 in around 10 seconds properly tuned.

Only one hard pull and the rest less than 1/3 throttle angle...
demonstrating the vehicle's exceptional torque curve. Iron heads, No
headers, just C8 Thunderbird manifolds. Car is LOUD!

1976 Ford F-250 Ranger "Mean Green" 460 C.I. Start and Drive
In this video I start up my beloved 76 F-250 Ranger, known as "Mean Green",
shes got a bored .040 over block. 9.7:1 compression, Edelbrock intake and
Edelbrock 4 Barrel 750 CFM Carb, MSD Distributor and coil, RV cam, and
slightly milled heads. Estimated horsepower is in the 350 to
400 range with somewhere around 400 to 500 ft lbs of torque, I know this
from the power adder combos I have used that are discused on ford truck and
460 engine forums that what I have should make the amount of power I say it
Watch the video, and you decide what you think!!
1976 Ford Thunderbird 460 V8 early drive
One of the first times I had my 1976 Thunderbird on the road in May 2008.
All stock except for dual Exhaust and
blocked EGR. Saw very little road/maintenance for several years prior to
my ownership and ran pretty weak, with a noticeable miss. By the end of
the 2008 season I replaced plugs, wires and coil. It ran a bit better but
the best improvement came from an MSD ignition and Edelbrock Performer carb
The car was sold in October 2012. I decided to restore a '68 Galaxie
Ford 460 Acceleration 3.70 gear 1971 LTD
New acceleration run... 3.70 gear and mini-spool. Speedometer HAS been
recalibrated with 21-tooth purple speedometer gear, so don't even try
arguing it's accuracy(former gear was a 16-tooth). Sorry the video is
shaky- holding a camera and manually shifting this thing is difficult, and
you have to hold on more now than ever!!
1988 Crown Vic cop car 0-85 mph

about 45, and second carries through a little over 75.The car is all stock
with a 351 and a 2 bbl carb, 3.23 gears, true dual Exhaust, and no tune-up since I've had it,
almost a year now. About 170,000 miles.
