1968 Mustang Engine Information – 427 cubic inch V-8 (7.0 FE Hipo V8)
This engine was offered for one year only in the Mustang. It was very expensive to make and offered less value to the customer than the 428 engine. It was dropped after one year and the 428 became the engine of choice for the performance group unless you could afford the “Big Boss”.

Engine Torque Specifications
All torque specifications provided in this table are those recommended by FORD. If you use special bolts, follow the torque specifications provided by the manufacturer. I recommend that you use the 3 step torque technique where you torque down the bolts in three equal steps. Once you have reached the maximum recommended torque setting, go around one more time. Do not torque in a circular pattern. Always torque cross to cross.
