The Ford FE (Ford Edsel) engine is one of the most popular engines Ford ever produced, and it powered most Ford and Mercury cars and trucks from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s. For many of the later years, FE engines were used primarily in truck applications. However, the FE engine is experiencing a renaissance; it is now popular in high-performance street, strip, muscle cars, and even high-performance trucks. While high-performance build-up principles and techniques are discussed for all engines, author Barry Rabotnick focuses on the max-performance build-up for the most popular engines: the 390 and 428.
With the high-performance revival for FE engines, a variety of builds are being performed from stock blocks with mild head and cam work to complete aftermarket engines with aluminum blocks, high-flow heads, and aggressive roller cams. How to Build Max-Performance Ford FE Engines shows you how to select the ideal pistons, connecting rods, and crankshafts to achieve horsepower requirements for all applications. The chapter on blocks discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each particular block considered. The book also examines head, valvetrain, and cam options that are best suited for individual performance goals. Also covered are the best-flowing heads, rocker-arm options, lifters, and pushrods. In addition, this volume covers port sizing, cam lift, and the best rocker-arm geometry.
The FE engines are an excellent platform for stroking, and this book provides an insightful, easy-to-follow approach for selecting the right crank, connecting rods, pistons, and making the necessary block modifications. This is the book that Ford FE fans have been looking for.

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 are 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, realiable FE that suits your vehicle and application.About the Author:
