Have you seen this:


Thread here:
600 HP N/A Carburated Ford 6.2 SOHC Foxbody Notch Build - High 9's Or Bust!!

This would be amazing in the 73 ford. I'd love to have a 6.2 in an 1969 F100. Best looking truck ever made IMO. Keep us posted.

Try getting in touch with Patton Racing Engines Inc. on Facebook.

They ALWAYS have some pretty sick Ford engines up for sale on there and they specialize in offroad.

Does anyone know what this engine is capable of N/A while retaining the fuel injection? I read some where that Livernois can get close to 600 crank hp out of their 6.6L stroker plus with head work and cams. Superchargers are great, but I think a really nasty N/A motor would be a lot cooler...and a lot more $$$$

You can probably squeeze out over 600hp with a high compression stroker motor. But then youre gonna be running race gas or sucking down e85 like a top fuel dragster haha. You are definitely going to spend some $$$

If you offroad, there are multiple problems that have been witnessed by people who have tried to create a twin turbo system. I seem to remember a transmission or fuel line coming loose offroading and starting a small fire that was quickly put out. Then comes the question of where do you mount everything and how. Mounting things off the engine probably isn't a good long term solution with how hard these trucks are run offroad. Then, on top of all of that, you have the tuning issue. From what I remember from the Twin Turbo thread that was on FRF (I don't know if it was deleted or not, I didn't search), trying to get the tune dialed in and perfect was a gigantic pain in the ass. Then you have the massive amount of heat the turbos will put off and how you will get rid of that heat so you don't melt things under the hood. And then on top of all of that you have the potential 6 rib belt problem.

Anything is possible with money, but sometimes it's just easier to go with a tried and true Whipple/Roush blower.

Not sure that I've seen any 6.2L engine swaps documented on here but do recall seeing someone do a 6.2L transplant in a foxbody notch over on Yellow Bullet in the past, here's a linky:

Carbureted 6.2 SOHC "Boss" Fox Mustang Swap - Yellow Bullet Forums

Will you be doing this swap yourself or having a shop assist you with this build?

I'd do something easier like an LS swap or a coyote.

The 6.2 is great and mine is currently being supercharged. But it's an expensive motor and modifying it is even more expensive due to the relatively small market.

Plus not everyone can tune for it.

More trouble than it's worth if your truck didn't come with one, IMO.
