I don't know about cars. I don't really race anyone, but my F-150 is running 450+ HP. I know it will go at least 130 without any problem. At that speed it is still pulling hard, but I am just a little too concerned over dying to find out just how fast it is. I don't know who fast in a quarter, but compared to a car that i used to have, which ran in the low 14s, it is a little faster. It probably would do 12s---maybe. And i still drive it every day and haul heavy loads sometimes with it.

I've done several simple mods to it, nothing to wild. Just simple stuff inculding a modified computer, which was a big improvment. Improvments to the air in and exhaust out, differient cam, simple head porting (nothing fancy) and an intake relocation. It is a 4x4 and came with 4.?? front and rear gears.(I did know 4--what, but I can't remember at the moment)

It does okay for me and presents no problems on starting, or running. You really can't tell unless you listen to it beside another stock F-150, or put your foot down.

I just dont see a 4x4 f150 with those mods having 450 hp and dont they have 2 cams. Even if it has 450hp its aleast 5000 lbs and i dont think it will make it into the 12s Sorry. Im a ford guy but i dont see it happening.But there has got to be some fast cars around,

The 450 HP I do know. I had it tested (457 @4700 rpm), but i did some additional mods after that. I was just guessing on the time. I do know it is faster than a car I used to have that I knew ran in the mid to low 14s, depending on the day, or so it seemed.

I was just trying to give the guy a guess as to what he needed. It is my daily driver and I was not looking to race when I did it. I just wanted more than stock power.

They do have 2 cams. Actually, the engine to me it looks like 2, four cilinders put together at the bottom.(Even if it had 8 cams,I'd still call it a cam.)

Nothing I did was drastic. The closest thing to something drastic was the cleanup on the intake and exhaust ports. I did that myself. I learned how long ago when I used to race. It does really help. And, if you are careful and don't get too wild, it is easy, but, if you are not careful you can ruin a head. If you try it, just try to match the gaskets, and slightly clean pu the ports. Be VERY careful of the valve seats and stems.

And, If I were looking to race, It would probably be a differient vehicle, or something bigger than a triton 5.4.(Don't they have those 6??CI or 7??CI crate engines now?) However, my days of racing passed when I had a child that I love and want to raise.

Also, there are so many new cars that are really fast, and so many people willing to spend a fortune on vehicles that I don't even want to compete anyomore. I'm happy with my truck. It is fast enough, will light the tires up, if I want, and so far, starts every time, which is my biggest concern now.

My only complaint is the gas milege when I forget to drive conservatley---12 to 18MPG. On the freeway with my cruse control on I do get on a good day 20+ MPG. However, I am happy with it.

I have a lowered Edsel with twin 40,270 ci Hemmis quad exhaust with dual blowers and turbos and an afterburner in the back.

I think it will be pretty fast, but I can't seem to get it started.

I heard justin "pennzoil boy" got his ass handed to him by a 05 v6 stang with bolt ons. Im just saying that his car is by far close to the fastest around. You can probally take any newer v8 car and eat him up.

I have a 75 buick skyhawk with 454,High rise mickey thompson Intake and exhust headers.
It came with a 305 when I bought it new.It threw a rod at about 125000.
I had the 454[ an old one that came with 454 hp from the factory.]I was building it for a project, actually a trike motorcycle.When the motor blowed up I dropped the 454 in it. It is light and wants to spin a lot out of the hole. If it had better tires it would help. It has semi pos rear end.Maybe add 4 link or ladder bars.
I think that it would be hard to follow for anyone.
Just needs a few more mods to be really fast. I like it the way it is.My days of raceing are over. I did outrun my nephews gt mustang by 2 cars in a quater mile. It was close because he jumped me by a car out of the hole.
His car runs 350hp and Im sure mine runs 500 hp.Its got a comp cam but runs smooth on the road. It has an overdrive unit so gas is not too bad for a trip. It never bogs at all on any road. Just a pleasure to drive.Inside and out.Could also use a better more freeflowing exhust.
