V12 552 Cubic Inch Ford Engine On Dyno

This guy is awesome.

From the article:
Ford has dabbled in V12 engines here and there, most famously with the GT90 concept. That wasn’t enough for Jan Baker, who decided to build the 1960s Le Mans engine Ford never did. He basically married two 302 Ford blocks to create what can only be described as the conjoined twin of engines. Each bank operates separately, with the two sharing a crankshaft and camshaft. Of course it’s not that simple, but that’s the easiest way to understand this beast.On the dyno Baker’s custom V12 put out 697 horsepower and 576 lb-ft of torque. Hopefully it finds a home sooner rather than later.

Ryan Falconer has been doing this with small-block Chevy's since the early 90's. And there are guys slicing up LS engines to make V12's.

It's nice to see someone doing it with a Ford platform!
