427 TUNNEL PORT

Does anyone know how much HP these engines produced? And where were they used at(NASCAR,NHRA DRAG RACING or what)?

I believe they were a Nascar engine.. as for the figures, I have no idea about the figures, not nearly as good as my fav- the 427 SOHC

I'm thinkin' they originally were for Nascar, but were banned. Ford then fed 'em into their drag racing effort before the cammer came along. Ironic, the Cammer got the same treatment from Nascar and ended up in drag cars, too.

So, Nascar took out 2 of our engines you say? Boy, that makes me like it even less! Glad to see everyone is afraid of competition....

If it's amy consolation, they took out the Hemi, too, at least for awhile. They did let the Boss 429 stay, though

No, NASCAR did'nt ban the 427 TP, they did ban the SOHC, however. Ford teams used the 427 TP quite successfully in 67 and 68 against the MOPAR Hemi's, but it was getting harder for them to do, the Hemi's would run away from the 427 TP's with one carb on board, so NASCAR actually let the Ford teams have the option of using dual 4 barrel carbs (which some of them did), all the while, the MOPAR Hemi's were still using one carb.
It was Ford who pulled the 427 TP's from competition as soon as their racing version of the BOSS 429 was ready. The 427 was no longer competitive against the mighty Hemi, thus it would take a Hemi to beat a Hemi! The BOSS 429 is a Hemi in its valve placement and layout, and just like the MOPAR Hemi, it too can move larger quantities of air/fuel than an FE based wedge head. There were some lesser funded teams that still continued to use the 427 TP up into the 70's, but they just were'nt competitive enough to win anything big.
Combine the BOSS 429 with the sleek new body of the 68/69 Torino and Cyclone, and it was an instant winner....in fact, it was the most winning'est body style in the ratio of wins per season. NASCAR today is very boring, I cant sit and watch a whole race, but I'll watch like say the last 10 laps.

Re: 427 TUNNEL PORT

you are wrong because ford was the maker of the hemispherical head. but scrapt it because the tunnelport gained alot more horsepower. the 426 hemi never out performed the ford 427 tunnel port. unless it was a crappy driver. and yes the 427 tunnel port was banned from nascar and lemans. the 427 tunnelport you are thinking of that barely ever got beat. was not the true 427 ford tunnelport sideoiler. but was a 427 lowriser top oiler that ford agreed to to level the field. thanks for the b.s. but i am jim craigs son. i know better than this crap! and the boss 429 cannot compare with a jim craig built 427 sideoiler tunnelport. I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WOULD EVEN COMPARE A TRUE 427 TUNNELPORT TO A MOPAR HEMI OF ANY SORTS NO COMPARRISON FORD 427 TUNNELPORT HANDS DOWN.

Re: 427 TUNNEL PORT

My father had a sanger competition bottom 18 ft boat with a ford 427 tunnel port that was blown. using a don hampton blower and a lenco set up this boat ran 147 in a quarter mile in the 80 s. the engine ran off avgas and methanol. it produced over 1400 hp.

Re: 427 TUNNEL PORT

Yay...

I LOVED watching race boats back in the 80's!

I even witnessed Mrs Budweiser crash and the (Utah something or other boat) crash, they were incredible!
