V12 552 Cubic Inch Ford Engine On Dyno

This guy is awesome.



From the article:
Ford has dabbled in V12 engines here and there, most famously with the GT90 concept. That wasnít enough for Jan Baker, who decided to build the 1960s Le Mans engine Ford never did. He basically married two 302 Ford blocks to create what can only be described as the conjoined twin of engines. Each bank operates separately, with the two sharing a crankshaft and camshaft. Of course itís not that simple, but thatís the easiest way to understand this beast.On the dyno Bakerís custom V12 put out 697 horsepower and 576 lb-ft of torque. Hopefully it finds a home sooner rather than later.

Pretty cool! I figured it would be an odd-fire engine since its based on a 90 degree V8


This makes me think about the billet FE block by Kirkham Motorsports and having the bucks to do a proper 60 degree bank angle.




Imagine making a 60 degree V12 coyote motor.
