The Boss 429 was certainly a bad hombre from Ford back in the day. As we told you a while back, there are companies where you can now buy new crate versions of the blue oval monster to bolt in your classic Mustang or other Ford product. Searching for cool videos involving tunnel ram intake manifolds, we found a tunnel ram equipped 429 screaming on an engine dyno. The noise is glorious.
We always suffer a small level of gearhead pucker factor when motors are pulling toward their RPM peak on the dyno. Probably because we’ve found more than a few videos of motors blowing up on the pump. This one comes through unscathed.
