    Would this be a 550 hp 513 or a 750 hp 513 and does it make that power at 5,200 or 6,500 ? Or is this a 514" Ford crate motor ? It's the little details that matter.

    Check with him to see if it has a 3/4 race cam

    Seriously you need to have a bit more info for anyone to give you a good guess. We( brother and I) built a 710 hp @ 6,000 rpm 512" 17 years ago 10:1 comp pump gas. It ran 84-86 no nos and 92 ish with a 200 hp nos system but it turned an A impeller at 6,000 with the nos approx 5,200 off the Nos at 85 in the gullwing.

    Find out rpm range and power estimate and I'm sure there are a few who will give you a good guess.

    I think the 513 does not use the 3/4 cam , it uses the full 1'' type to make up the difference on the flux capacitor .

    cris the 513 also used the 1/2 style cam if its a true bay city roller
    it uses a 700 thousands longer lifter to make up the difference in play
    NOW
    if its a 514 you need to check with WARP SPEED this is old school nascar junk
    he worked on these when he was 12 ,they had one in the pulp wood truck down at the saw mill, they used it to run the saw

    Let's see, you bought a ford and don't know what is in it Please check your eye hook size on the front of your boat so I will know what size Ford Tow Rope I will need to carry

    What is a FORD motor? In a drag doat? Is this some kind of joke? I thought that they were all in F150 tow trucks.

    Your quesion is very generalized and somewhat loaded, regardless of engine brand.

    You have not provided any details whatsover about the build, so how can anyone estimate performance capabilities? Also, even if the power output was known, the engine might push one 800-lb hull with a B impeller to 77 mph, and another 800-lb hull with a B impeller to 97 mph...depending on overall setup, etc.

    The potential of the engine that you (blindly) bought can better be determined by way of a tear-down, or at least by telling us what block it has, what heads it has, what induction, ignition, etc. I have personally known 500-cube Fords running on carbs and gas (no power adders) that put out just 450 hp, and also have known 500-cube Fords to generate in excess of 1000 hp on just carbs and gas. It's not hard to tell which engine is which when looking them over, but you have provided zero detail, and we need build details to so much as even consider speculating.

    Yes, I do believe he is still the record holder in the class.

    Not only that, but I've been to 5 drag boat races and I think it's won all 5 times, I know it won at least 4 of those.
