]DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 24, 2018 – The new 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition honors the legendary American Gulf Oil-sponsored Ford GT40 by featuring the most famous paint scheme in motorsports – plus a set of additional exclusive touches.

“Many view the Gulf Oil paint scheme as the most famous in motorsports,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, global operations. “The 1968 GT40 quickly became a global sensation after beating its European competitors on the track four times in a row, and in honor of the 50th anniversary of its win, we’re paying fresh tribute to the original with a new heritage limited edition.” Click Here to Continue Reading...

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 8, 2018 – Ford is celebrating the production of its 10 millionth Mustang – America’s best-selling sports car of the last 50 years and the world’s best-selling sports car three years straight.

The 10 millionth Ford Mustang is a high-tech, 460 horsepower 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 six-speed manual convertible equipped with the latest driver assist technology and built at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan.

Air Evacuation | SVTP Tool-Tech | UView - Airlift Cooling System Rad-Vac

This is one tool that I never thought would get as much use as it does. I’m constantly surprised how often I find myself reaching into my tool box for my UView - Airlift Cooling System Rad-Vac. Basically anytime you break into the cooling system on your vehicle you should be pulling a vacuum on system to make sure it’s properly filled and that there are no leaks. That goes air-to-water intercooled supercharger systems too... Click Here to Continue Reading...
Big Bore Details | Ford's Godzilla (7X) V8 Engine | Plus a New Name

In our previous Ford 7X Engine Article we mentioned that we have a bit more insider information to share. While this some of this info is single source, I have been able to confirm a good deal of it as completely accurate. I am 100% certain that the engine is a 2-Valve Pushrod V8 with Aluminum Cylinder Heads. They will carry on with the Ford tradition of being clamped to the block with 4 Bolts around each cylinder. It is going to be direct injected, and it will be built at Ford’s Windsor, ON Canada Engine Plant... Click Here to Continue Reading...
Monsters Among Us - More Details Emerge on Ford's New Godzilla (7X) V8 Engine

Fresh on the heels of the last article blowing the lid on Ford's upcoming 7.3L OHV V8, we have even more details. Some of the specs I'm about to go into have been confirmed by multiple sources, and a few are single source. More interestingly, I have gotten a look at the actual cylinder heads. Let me start out by saying, based on the heads alone this engine has the potential to be special.

First off, the valves and ports all look enormous. I have been told, but cannot confirm, that that the intake valves measure out at 2.20-Inches in diameter. If that is the case that would mean Ford's Godzilla would have larger valves than the last Big Block engine produced in the US, the GM Vortec 8.1L V8... Click Here to Continue Reading...

Injected Engineering Builds a 'High-Voltage' Whippled F-150

It has been the better part of 15 years since Ford last gave us an SVT Lightning, and that Gen 2 design is poised to turn twenty years old later this year. Not wanting to build on a platform that is nearly old enough to buy a beer; Injected Engineering customer Stan Cumens decided to start with something a bit newer. In this case, a 2017 Ford F-150 5.0 4X4 was selected as the base for a thoroughly modern Hi-Po Street Truck build... Click Here to Continue Reading...
Begone Demon Clamp | SVTP Tool-Tech | Hose Clamp Pliers

If there is one automotive component that has led to more frustration than should ever be tolerated, it has to be the spring loaded hose clamp. There have been times when one of those things was the bane of my existence. If they aren't flying off to parts unknown, then they're located in an area where a contortionist couldn't get a pair of pliers on them. There was one on the secondary radiator of a 2011 Ford F-250 with the 6.7L Powerstroke diesel that left my hands looking like I had been bare-knuckle boxing a cheese grater. Thankfully, there's a better way. Click Here to Continue Reading...
UPDATE :: Return of the Pushrod | Ford's New 7.3L Engine is Actually an OHV V8

I'm not sure how to even begin this. Recently I posted what I thought was a well thought-out speculation on what exactly this new 7.3L Gas Engine from Ford could be. To me, the most logical this was an update of the venerable 6.8L V10 for the HD Truck, Commercial, and Motorhome markets. After a lengthy discussion with a behind the scenes source it would appear that I was wrong. Very WRONG.

According to my sources on the inside the new 7.3L is actually the first in a new series of V8 engines that will feature pushrod valve actuation instead of the OHC configuration we've become accustomed to... Click Here to Continue Reading...
