Re: 427 v. 428

No I didn't read the article, since when did ANY manufacturer give more than 12,000 miles on a HP engine, let alone 100,000, Not sure about a Chevy 454 on 70, but I'm almost positive no Hemi got more than a year or 12,000, and we know what the HP 427 Ford got.

Re: 427 v. 428

So again, Ford worked to take to 390 to a 406, why not a 427 to 452, or 482?
