It’s no secret that Chevy has been making a great small block V8 since 1955. Â But is it so good that it needs to be dropped into Ford engine bays? Â Are Ford V8’s really that terrible? When I think about Ford V8’s, I instantly think about awesome 1960’s high-compression, dual four barrel 289’s. I think about the legendary flat head’s that were made famous on the salt flats. I think about the rare works of art that were the SOHC-head 427’s. So whenever I see a Chevy engine living under a Ford hood, I say to myself “WTH is going on here?!’. Am I alone in thinking this way? What do you think?
