They're rated by ford for up to 750ish but have been up past 1000 and are still running strong.
Have you posted a pic of your car? How about 2 pics - one with the hood up?

Sure thing my friend. I posted them earlier but I'll repost them.
And again, don't mind my rusty coolant crossover tube it was put on in a hurry and I don't wanna drain the radiator fluid to sand/paint it just to replace it when I do the blower(the supercharger will sit right to the left of it so I gotta replace it with a custom one- it just kills the whole engine bay right now)The Okie Corral
Engine bay with new forged motor
The Okie Corral
Vortech thats just begging to be installed The Okie Corral

I have had extensive seat time in both and just wondering what your basis is?
I used to install motors in SPF cobras for 4 years, but that was 15 years ago. Back then, you could see daylight through the Factory-5 bodies if you stuck your head in the fender. The engineering detail level was miles apart. I haven't kept up with the replica industry since 2001.

Another thing, factory-5 cars can be hacked together by an idiot, or finished nicely. All SPF cars are finished nicely, there are no bubba'd half finished superformance cars out there.

Thanks. I'd like to alibi that I hadn't seen these. But, I remember them now; I can only claim a brain stall.

The car is going to be outrageous once the Vortech is installed.

Thanks for re-posting the pictures.

There are quite a few muscle cars on the market today. Charger, Challenger, Camaro, Mustang, Corvette. Just to name a few. The 1980s and 90s were the worst eras in cars.

But is it the big hem or the little hemi? Cop cars have the little hemi and while they run nicely they won't run with the larger hemi. Old cars are more muscular in performance but the newer cars have radial tires and better shocks etc. But Coolness is older cars. To me all people look the same now and cars do too....
