It bent the connecting rod, damaged the piston and put 2 cracks in the block, it had a 466 ci engine producing 500 horsepower and 500 foot lbs of torque, it ran a best of 12.43 @ 110 mph. The engine actually blew right as he crossed the finish line, and he ran 12.7 sec. Me and my dad then took out that engine and took a 1986 Crown Victoria 302 and dropped it into the t-bird, it now has about 175hp@4200 rpm and about 265 foot lbs of torque@1600 rpm. I then purchased it from him. The only mods we have done for performance is add a new air filter and do X piping on the exhaust system, we also installed a new headliner. Everything is stock except for the rims, entire engine, the battery was moved to the trunk, the clock is gone and in it's place is a tach, it has a hood scoop, no more hood ornament, and 4.10:1 gears with posi trac. I was planning on putting in a 347 stroker from bennett racing, then supercharge it for at least 700 hp, but I am instead going to buy my dads engine and C6 transmission (I am going to save over $10,000 going this route). He had the cylinder that had the cracks in it bored out and a sleeve put in so the block is all fixed. The only stuff I need to get it running is cylinder heads, rotating assembly, and a couple odds and ends. I am going to buy blue thunder heads, and a stroker that will make it 544 ci. I am also going to buy a new comp cam and a new carb, probably a 850 cfm holley. It will have a minimum 600 hp and tons of torque. There's nothin' like big block Ford power!In the first picture you can see a 1966 Ford F-100 in the background, my dad used to race that, it had a 429 and ran 14 sec. He then bought the T-bird and put the 429 in it. On his way to a mens fishing trip with our church many years ago he had a oiling problem and a push rod punched a hole in the block. He then bought a used 460 and had it over bored to clean up the cylinders, that is why it is now a 466.
