OK I have the ford 460 engine and know it's juicy.

Now how does the Chevy 454 compare to the Ford 460?

Then how does the 454 compare to the Ford V10 triton?

What is the latest Chevy petrol engine?

Todays hot finance tip.

Hi John, I have an empty bank account and if you pour your cash into it it accrues interest so instead of burning it put into something useful, like my account.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Hi John two weeks ago I brimmed my Damon Ford V10 and it hasn't used a drop in that fortnight
I will spoil that though this Saturday, I'm going to start it up:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: ask me again when I get back from Morocco, Im working on 80 miles to the gallon, down one side of the Atlas Mountains:thumb:
Geo
Or anther way I do it, Damon about 10 -12 miles per gallon, Piaggio Scooter on the back 100 mile per gallon
Divide by two,=Average 55-56 MPG
Shut up!!!!!!!!!!!! it works for me::bigsmile:
