The Ford FE engine is one of the most prolific engines Ford ever produced, and it powered the Mustang, Torino, Galaxie, Thunderbird and many other vehicles from the 1960s through the mid 1970s. For many years, the FE engine was not the engine of choice for high-performance applications but the FE engine has enjoyed a high-performance renaissance on street and strip as well as in trucks. During its 18-year production run, a wide range of displacements were offered - 332, 352, 361, 390, 391, 406, 410, 427 and 428.

How To Build Max-Performance Ford FE Engines, shows you how to select the best components and build a max-performance FE for almost any application. Author Barry Rabotnick explains the tips, techniques and parts-selection tricks for building a strong, complementary, max-performance engine package. In the pursuit of ultimate high-performance, Rabotnick focuses engine build-up guidance on the most popular FE engines - the 390 and 428. To get the most from an engine, you need a strong block for a solid foundation. The block chapter reveals specific design features you need and how to inspect critical areas, so you can select a sound stock block or the ideal aftermarket block for your desired performance level. Since the top end needs to match the block, the intricacies and ideal head valvetrain and cam combinations ard discussed. And the author goes a step further - he covers the best flowing heads, rocker arm, lifters and pushrod options for a particular setup. In addition, the book covers port sizing, cam lift and the best rocker arm geometry for a variety of setups. The FE engines are an excellent platform for stroking, so an insightful easy-to-follow approach is provided for selecting the right rotating assembly. In the end, you will be able to build a high-performance reliable FE that suits your vehicle and application.
