Chevy vs Ford
 
This is a very bad subject to ask about but I wanna know.


A 350 chevy and a 351 Ford Motor I know can both make very good HP, but which one can make more? is There any certain engine parts that chevy makes better than ford or vice versa?
out of all the years which motor has had more HP stock?


With aftermarket parts would they both be pretty close?

There are too many variables to answer that correctly. Unless you want a troll-like number of responses you will need to be a little less vague with the question. Are you talking about stock displacement?

The parts for each are about the same price now because of the 5.0 parts getting cheaper.

Echofive 01-04-2004 12:43 AM

yes i mean stock displacement, and i mean stock motor produced by the two companies. so there stock ratings who produced a wilder engine stock?

If you are talking about the 351W than I would say the 350 Chevy's had more power from the factory. The 351C might come closer.

whick engine do you guys think is more reliable? Please give specifics. Thanks

from the factory the 351C did make more power than the 351W. But nowadays ,with the aftermarket available for the windsor, dollar for dollar the windsor usually beats the cleveland in making power. As far as 350 vs. 351...Id say dollar for dollar the 350 Chevy wins, doesnt mean the chevys better....just means Chevys parts are cheaper.

i hate this kind of thread, its always littered with die hard Chevy and ford fans arguing a topic that cannot be resolved.. the answer just isn't out there.. it used to be true that more parts were available cheaper for Chevy, but with the 5.0 racing crowd developing and competing for the last decade there are at least as many go fast parts for SB fords as for SBC. Sherman racing did a 302 ford for hot rod magazine it developed just over 400 Hp and cost just under 2000.

So i guess the best answer to the question of which best, is what bolts up to your transmission, ans fits your engine mounts....

If you want power get an Oldsmobile!! :thumbup:

Seriously though the response about what bolts up is probably the best. I would go this way unless I was building a machine from scratch, then I probably would use something a little more uncommon. How 'bout a Caddy, flatty or Olds, maybe even an early Hemi or a Buick nail head? It all depends what you're going for. Are you looking to just make it go or are you looking for a motor that stands out from the crowd?

tm454 01-04-2004 04:36 PM

power, we don't need no stinkin power!
 
Barz, you the man!! Where does the Hemi fit in here??

Rat Rods Rule!

The Hemi isn't that great. It did lead the way for new cylinder head technology in the 50's, but nowadays it is pretty low tech.

Crazy Mopar Guy 01-04-2004 07:04 PM

What a bunch of whiners!
Wasn't it the insecure Poncho who tossed his Hemi smears into a Ford vs Chev thread?

The Hemi is still under the hoods of all sorts of race cars, which is an accomplishment for a "low tech" "boat anchor"?

Is there so much jealousy the insults will never stop?
