    Piff that's just a baby engine, if I was going that direction I would do the all aluminum 816cid Hemi head Big block Ford.Only makes 1150hp with 9.5:1 compression.

    I believe there's a fitment and weight issue with the big blocks. I know the small block 5.7 hemi will fit nicely. However it's a cheaply made engine but completely stock with upgraded rods and springs and you'll have a reliable engine and 330hp is enough to move our trucks giving them about a 9:1 power to weight ratio

    The Big block I'm talking about weighs 413lbs all put together, and yeah it would be way to big to put in a D-50 without some heavy mods to the cab for space. . But Damn it would be fun to make a full pro-street D-50 with 18.5" or wider meats in back with a full tubular frame and roll cage.


    lol even better 820cid

    Besides if I was to do something like that it would be for a 2wd drag racer.

    Like our trucks are so aerodynamic that it would be totally worth putting that in one, lol. Drop that monster in a speed boat, now which one would get the most babes?

    If you're going to do a motor swap for an excess of power, do it with style... with a fancy belt driven hood scoop Nothing grabs attention quite like a roots blower... Not always good attention, like the amount your giving to the gas gauge as you watch it plummet

    That's the 340 out of my '74 Duster. I haven't drove it since 2011, when it was Naturally Aspirated. Back then it fed on anything that had wheels.
