That motor is CHOKING on that dinky little air filter...probably run mid-11's with the right one...lol. That's pretty awesome though, I've seen articles about the 5.0 swaps into them...never saw a converted one in person...let alone someone silly enough to put a 408 in one.

I"d rather not change the spark plugs by unbolting the engine, but I guess thats just me. I saw a video of a stock 5.0 out of a 87 mustang in one with a carb, and that little bugger moved. It was weird watching the weight transfer to the rear.
