Re: 347 stroker in a 1990 Bronco
The 5.0 block (which isn`t as beefy as a 5.8) most likely will fail with anything over 500HP. If have seen them back in my machine shop days, with the block cracked right down the middle of the lifter galley, from the #1 cam journal to the rear of the block. Even if your buildup never reaches this output, a stouter block as the 5.8 has, and the NEED for torque at a lower rpm than a stroker would be the better route to go in a 5K lb. bronco...
But, if $$$ is of no concern, enjoy while it lasts....
