Bronco Info: 1978 Cummins Bronco
I haven't taken it to the chassis dyno, but from reading up on the Cummins websites, with the mods I've done, it should be around 260hp and 650 ft/lbs of torque, give or take 10%.
I've been driving heavy trucks for a living on and off since '86, and in fact, just hit my millionth mile in the summer of '09, so I'm right at home with a diesel under me. I wouldn't trade diesel power for anything..
p.s. I'm not a big fan of dodges, either, although I certainly would take a Dodge with Cummins power over a GM with an Isuzu maxipad diesel any day, but Cummins is a separate entity, and they make pretty awesome motors. Especially the old all-mechanical models. In fact, the bigger Ford F series heavy trucks have Cummins in them, too.
