    I wanted to do something different anyone can put a stroked 302 in. The stock 302 is rated at 160 hp that's with the optional dual exhaust.
    WTF was ford thinking on a tank like that. Also those AOD are weak a built 4r70w behind a Mod motor would nearly double the Hp and take some weight off that nose.All idea's are welcome guys i am stuck on stupid with this one.

    Every town car needs 400+ HP, they are so heavy.

    I'd take a Mark VIII short block, slap some c heads and intake on it and shove it in there.
