We just finished rebuilding our 390Fe motor for our 63 Galaxie this is what we have under the hood. If anyone would know the horse power please let me know so my husband can settle down on rather or not he has ENOUGH hp.

Crank turned 10/10
Clevite TC1713 0.40 pistons @ 10.5: 1 compression
Ford performer RPM aluminum cyl. heads
170cc intake ports
72cc combustion chambers
2.090" int/ 1.660" exh. valves
1.250 valve springs, .070 max lift (if I read specs right)
Crane Cam hyd. roller lifters
Crane Cam harden steel pushrods
Crane Cam 349541 (rolling cam)
359 dur. 632 lift 2800-6400 rpm

I would say its definitely not enough and would add a nice 200hp nitrous system... I would say blower, but the compression is already too high for that.

I'm not a ford guy, but if those model heads and cam size were used on a 400 small block it would make at least 500hp. So, I would think your engine will make at least 500hp too.

You need to be careful with those Rolling Cams an 0.070" max lift springs! Hahaha. Just kidding. But it is called a Roller Cam and I'm sure the springs are 0.700" max (not 0.070") which should be OK with the 0.632" lift cam. Just to clarify.

Onov, something wrong with your dyno sheet due to power falling off at 5000 rpms with a 359 degree duration cam and 0.632" lift that has an advertised power band from 2800 to 6400 rpms.

A 359° cam? According to Crane, it's got a hydraulic intensity of 62° which would make it a 300° advertised cam, 238°/246° @ .050".

Cam Facts: Excellent mid-range and upper RPM HP, lightweight
kit car, rough idle, performance usage, good mid-range HP,
mild bracket racing, auto trans w/2500+ converter,works well
with aftermarket aluminum cylinder heads, 3600-4200 cruise
RPM, 10.0 to 11.5 compression ratio advised.


6205 Hookers have 1-7/8" x 36" primaries with a 3-1/2" x 10" collector, a terrible mismatch for power range of the setup. Most likely it is terminated in a reducer to further mess up the scavenging.

The intake? It's a dual plane stock replacement type.
Ford 332-428 V8
PERFORMER 390 (idle-5500 rpm)
Designed for street 332-352-360-390-406-410-427-428 c.i.d. Ford V8s with medium- or low-rise cylinder heads. #2105 is stock replacement/street legal part for 332, 352, 360, 390, 406, 410, 427 and 428 V8s with OEM 4V carb.; 1966-72 (1973 non-CA); except stock equipped EGR. Manifold not equipped with EGR; will not accept stock Motorcraft spread-bore carburetor or fit heavy-duty 361 c.i.d. and 391 c.i.d. Ford truck V8s.


The heads? Pretty much stalled out at .500" lift.

I'll bet this is a real engine in a real car, with a water pump, an alternator, a power steering pump, mufflers, tailpipes, etc. It's not going to make 500 hp like the dream motors. On a chassis dyno it should make 365-370 rwhp.
