Is it the B block 347?
If so I had one years ago, I think mine was a hyper piston setup, not that it mattered the B block didn't turn out to be much if any stronger than a stock block.

Although that engine made a great NA setup, capable of 10's with the right heads, cam intake.

While if I was you i'd like to know too, since it's probably not built with an R block and you already know it's not a boss, it may not really matter what's in it, because you can't push it past 500rwhp anyway.

In the garage
B block- 2 bolt main block- slighly beefier than a stock 5.0 but certainly not an R or Dart block. It will make good power but as stated know it's limitations.

Thank you for the quick response. I dont know if it is a B block. The previous owner bought the 347 crate motor from ford racing. Does anyone know what If it is a forged crank, pistons and rods?
