289 Ford Dyno pull
« on: June 20, 2009, 02:47:32 pm »
Made a movie at work yesterday for you guys. This is a 289 Ford motor I just built. HP was over 560. This is an American spec motor. They run a couple of different intake manifolds depending on what orginazation they race with-this is with a "dual plane" manifold-its down 12 hp from the single plane they can run with SVRA. This run was up to 8300 rpm.

Is there anything that sounds better than an american V8?  Not to me there isn't.
