I want to get at least 500hp out of a 347.Can any one tell me how to do this.what heads,cam,ext.I kind of want it for the street too not just racing.It is going in my mud truck so I need to drive it on the street too.I have about 300hp comming out of it now.This engine is going in my little 4x4 ford ranger(soild axles & 37in boggers now)so I don,t have alot of room for stroked out 351w.
Well I know it can be done (people here doing it). The question in a ranger is can you get it to the ground. 500 out of a 347 is not that hard giving up street manners, trying to stay streetable will be the hard part if you go n/a. Throw a decent size supercharger on a 347 and you can get both pretty easy, but will not be especially cheap.
Why cant life ever be simple, and car parts be cheap???
I run at the local mud pit in the summer.I'd put a 351w in but I need to find headers for it that will fit a 4x4.I was thinking of a turbo or two on the engine.My trans and axles will support around 600hp.So if some one can find me them headers all build a 408 or 427.
what would ederbrock victor jr heads with 205 intake and 160 exhaust do for my 347 and a nice size roller cam.oooo and joe that web site didn't say them headers were for a 351w all i seen was for a 302.I all ready have the 302 headers in my truck now sorry.
This guy here is making about 500 flywheel horsepower with his 347 and it doesnt have really high compression and it is not that wild to drive down the street. Oh course everybody has a different opinion on what "streetable" is but I think this is a very streetable combo that makes a ton of power for the cubic inches. With todays parts 500hp out of a 347 is pretty easy.
I have only seen ONE guy bring me a 347 engine to run on the dyno that made 502 HP. It had a SOLID ROLLER CAM THAT PEAKED AT 7200 rpm.. It takes the exact combination of parts and must be put together correctly.What a professional engine builder can do, and what a back yard builder can do are two entirely differant things. Why dont you buy an engine from an engine builder that knows what to do instead of asking advice from other people who are not engines builders either.
