I think that motor would do very nicely, thank you. Has anyone seen Ford's 
new 392 cid stroker crate motor? I read about it in Car Craft...450bhp & 
475lb torque, all at fairly low revs. Built off of a thick web, Sportsman 
block, aluminum GT40X heads w/ roller rockers, Scat crank, strong rods, ... 
street price is going to be about $5600. Now THATS the one I want in my Tiger!
