Re: Hello,a little info/opinion needed?

It is a P71 so it is/was a cop car (hence the 140mph speedo). It should have dual exhaust and 210hp. I'm not sure about the torque rating but I *think* it's 270-275lb/ft.

How many miles?

Sounds like a good purchase. If you want to enhance your performance, a good upgrade is the PI heads and intake. They're available off of '01-up 4.6L V8s.

Other than that, I can't tell ya much. I'm a small block Ford guy...
