I still have a few things to do before they are applied.
Are you staying white or changing colors? Either way it's going to look awesome.

1978 Bronco XLT Ranger: 351M with Edelbrock intake, FAST EZ EFI 2.0, FAST dual sync dizzy, FAST E6 ignition box, Wild Horses Hydroboost and Sag pump kit, C6 Trans, Dana 44 front and 9" rear

Nice showing guys! Tough choice between 379sinvb and M2A2C. Love the 78-79's, and what 379sinvb has done to his makes me want it, BAD... but something about M2A2C's ride just SPEAKS to me! That stance, the color with the black contrasts, the endless list of VERY nice improvements, and oh yeah... That EFI 460!!!

Looks like my vote tied it up! Should be an interesting last couple days! Game on guys.

Thanks for the kind words TJSmoot and 379sinvb!

I didn't show before but I have a 3" exhaust with a magnaflow muffler, and L&L headers. When I started it up with just the headers it was awesome and loud. It sounded like a top fuel drag car.







More to come thanks guys!

Once the muffler shop was done they displayed it out front for the day. I'm glad they felt the same about it as I do.

Here is a quick video of the start up. She idles great and runs well. The parking lights flashing at the beginning is the remote keyless entry. It also has the 15 sec courtesy light delay.


Here is a quick 0-60 (the exhaust tone is fairly low until you open it up).


Passing gear


Not bad for a 6000lb Bronco on 40's. It is a fairly stock 460 and running a modest 5-7lbs of boost. What has impressed me is the low end torque that the 460 puts out. With the supercharger always building boost, it has a very quick throttle response.

Blow out!

Final days of this competition so lets blow it out.

All loaded up for the Round Up trip.


I put the wife to work and had her unload the Bronco!






















In 2012 we went to the RU thinking we would give it a shot. Since then we've gone back and can't wait to go back the next year. While 2016 we could not make it because of the dates (school was still in session). The 2017 RU is back on the calendar and we are going to be there.

Really good showing guys, M2 coming out of nowhere with a bad to the bone BKO , but I had to go with the 79 (I'm kinda partial ) with all the awesome mods and a true supporter sporting a large fullsizebronco.com sticker on the back.

Good luck guys

Well its my last big push for the end of the contest!

Now that summer is over, I wanted to upload some pictures of Fall. I took these on our recent trip up the canyon.

Notice while driving out she cruises at 60MPH and under 2000 RPM's (also look at my GPS, it says 58 and my speedo says 45? yeah time to calibrate the psom). I am stoked about the overdrive in the E40D. With 5.13 gears and 40's I am surprised she does so well on the freeway.



This canyon is a little narrow with a lot of blind corners.













watch out for the tree while backing up.

We saw these little friendly deer on the way up.





Here is the top:



Wonder what the worlds largest open pit copper mine looks like? We are high enough to look inside. Not very pretty but interesting to look at.
