What Next!?!

Post  bronco911 on July 20th 2014, 9:32 pm

Well, got sick of trying to cut weight and build more power in the 4200 lb Bronco to keep ahead of the lightweight Chevys and Jeeps running around the dunes.
Bought an all out tube chassis racer to put my big motor in, ( 1582 lbs with just me and the motor missing)       so I need to build a new power plant for the Bronco that is super reliable yet will still whip on most of the stuff running around the dunes for the wife to drive.

Looking for some ideas.

I was thinking just a .30 over 460 with some mild SCJ heads and a decent cam, but not sure that will be sufficient.

Thanks for any input , and I will be fast tracking both builds and try to start a build link.

That is awesome!  So you're probably looking at 2500lbs when it's ready to go w/ you in it!  Post more pics!

The 604 is going in the racer. The wife seems to have lost a little bit of her need for speed over the last couple years, so I just want to stay smallish for her to drive, say 514? Or 502? Not sure what's going to keep the lead sled moving the best for her
