RadialDragon added a topic in NASCARFord Based Stock Car Engines?Do they exist? What CI is the motor based on? Would the intake be compatible with 302CI or 351 CI ford engine from other models? I have looked for a Ford Stock car engine but only seem to be able to find GM and Dodge Based engines...

RadialDragon added a topic in GeneralEngine sourcesWas thinking we could get an engine source list going. The idea is to post actual Models that are worth their price just for the engines. Some resin engine kits can be pricey and sometimes cost even more then an entire model. What kits are a good option for a hot motor with good detail? This could help other modelers like me that have been out of the scene for a while... Whenever a new suggestion is posted I will update the list
One model I have found to fit the drag racing type builds is the 'Revell' "1955 Jukebox Ford" kit. You can build the motor as either the Ford or Chevy version ( has 2 different intake manifolds) and the detail and fit and finish of the engine impressed me..
