I didn’t know what I was getting into when I bought this abomination. It’s 429 has better specs than a Super Cobra Jet, and yet it is EVIL. IT EATS CHILDREN! Perhaps it is the Frankenstein array of parts from other brands, other Ford models of different years, Chrysler, Chevy, and even Harley-Davidson share a home under the hood. But one of the first things I did was to put stiffer and lowered front springs under that big block, so now when she runs ’em over, I barely notice.
