Re: Still alive, still asking questions!
Thanx Sixlitre for the tips! I want to go carbed for easier troubleshooting and maintenence, although I also love the ease of starting and driving that EFI offers. My engine is a 1983 six and I am putting it in my 85 Bronco mudder. (You may remember it...pics should still be posted on "my pics" on the test stuff here page.)
My 85 is currently EFI...maybe a six EFI conversion wouldn't be too hard. Have you ever swapped anEFI 302 to an EFI six? Would the EFI run my 1983 carbed six or would I have to switch heads and cams, etc?
As for the "Y" pipe, I just put brand new dual exhaust on the Bronco before the 302 gave up the ghost. I don'e want to throw it away...I actually paid a pro to put it in instead of doing the clamps and sawing myself! Plus, I race...sweet exhaust sound always wins the crowd even if you don't take first!
Not to worry, I've got the granny gear 4 speed- great tranny. I wouldn't go 352, they are too much work to bolt in since they never came in the 80's body style. Plus I want to go SIX! I've ran a built 390, stock 302, built 460, stock 350, built 360 (Dodge), stock 22R (Toyota), 351M, 351W, and many other engines in my many 4X4's I've owned over the years. I liked the 302 and 351W best, but now I want to go SIX! It has almost the same power as a 302 and more TORQUE. I watched a sorry sap take his SIX Bronco racing. The only reason I beat him was my Boggers. He ran regular all terrain highway tires. If he had real tires, he could've beat my screaming 302!
BigNorm- good to see a familiar name still here...you too Sixlitre! Is saw a lot of new names...hope they got good answers too!
