Since Ford straight-up refuses to revisit its Galaxie with a ~600-hp Cammer 427 construct (which would be a bold-ass move to be sure), we'll have to satisfy our gonzo-sedan fantasies by way of civilian tweakage. Take the MadMax2006 project by Long Island PCM tuner, Powersurge Performance. The team took a 2000 Crown Vic Police Interceptor, dropped in a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 from a Lighting pickup, waved their magic calzone over it, and whamo: 540hp. That number comes by way of a swapped-in Whipple twin-screw supercharger over stock hardware, which further results in flat torque delivery of 500 lb-ft over the dyno's speed range. The last of the V8 interceptors? We think not.
