The humble 302ci Ford V8 is a legend. It’s dependable, powerful, cheap, and can be swapped into virtually anything. There’s one thing that the old Ford does lack however; flare. Our friend Jan Baker has the solution for you, a Ford V12 Engine!

Using two Ford 302 V8s along with several Cleveland heads, he managed to build a ludicrous 552ci Ford V12 that produces an insane 697bhp.

We can’t begin explaining how the entire contraption works, though Jan Baker swears it operates on fairly basic principles. All we know is it sounds like a proper v12 race engine, and we couldn’t be happier that it exists. Jan explains the entire contraption far better than we ever could. Watch the full video below!
