This has been a great engine! It has tremendous torque, gets terrific gas mileage, and has been as reliable as an anvil. The only noticable flaw has been the inability to run in extremely hot weather (95+ degrees) on pump gas due to detonation caused by the high compression ratio. We've been...

Spectre Performance purchased a 74 Maverick, with a 200ci inline six to use as a project car and test bed for their new EMS-Pro fuel injection controller. The motor only had 20K miles since it was rebuilt, but had a severely scored piston in one cylinder. This was causing major blow-by and a...

FORD 9-INCH REAR ENDS A number of years ago, I set out to search the salvage yards in an effort to find a 9-inch rear end to go in my '68 Mustang. I knew that my up coming plans for my car were going to be way beyond anything the weak 8-inch rear end could continuously hold up to. After that...

Oil is the life blood of any engine and our Inline 6's are no exception. Unless you planned on customizing your stock oil pan there was no other choice until now!!! These 6 quart oil pans are made in Australia by "High Energy" performance products and are imported by Fordsix Performance Parts...
