Re: Ford '95 7.5L engine no good?
I've had 2 460's in my history of Ford Trucks. My 86 had 180K miles on it when I sold it, and the engine was just as strong as it ever was. I got 14 mpg on the freeway with a 4" lift and 35's. My 95 had 150K miles on it when I sold that, same story as the prior truck. I could get 14-16 mpg out of that truck of the freeway with no lift.
The 460, as I'm sure anybody who knows anything will test to, is a great block. As with any motor, the more care you give it the longer it will perform for you. Keep fresh oil in it and good gas in the tank and it will run strong for a long time. (not to mention the other regular maintanence)

Just remember- racing stickers may add 5hp but engine chrome adds 10hp!
