Speed density vs. MAF for power adders on the 351
Howdy folks -
I'm in the market for a Bronco and haven't narrowed down the year range I'm looking for quite yet. I prefer the exterior and interior look of the 80s and early 90s, but I think the '96 351 is going to be the easiest to juice up.
What kind of options are there on the speed density motors? Specifically, I'm eyeing a '91 that is in great shape and has a (relatively) low mileage 351 and e4od trans. I'd like to put a cam, intake, and exhaust (headers) on it... what kind of power could/should I expect from that? My understanding is that the cam options are pretty limited on the speed density motors... not so much on MAF though.
I'm not looking to build an entire engine or change any of the other internals. These are changes I'm planning on regardless of year that I find.
