It is taking much longer on the project than we thought but we were in the middle of the Louisiana floods last year, lost our house and the Bronco went completely underwater turning into a submarine for a while.
We had just finished raptor lining the entire inside and replaced the Distributor and all of the EFI sensors when it went under. :-( Then once everything dried out and we found a new place to live and became someone stable we then refocused on the Bronco.
My son decided to trade Band for Auto Shop when he found out he could bring it to school and work on it during class.
So if anyone remembers the scene from Risky Business you have an idea where we were back starting from. And yes there were dead fish along with sticks, mud and other crap everywhere.
So after much work and cleanup this is where she sits:
The engine runs pretty good but seems down on power and cant get the rings to seat again and she is still blowing a bit of smoke so we are going to build a mild 351.
So rummaging through the junkyard we found the holy grail of all Ford Motors. (next to a Boss 429 that is)
A 95 Cobra R!!! 330HP GT40 headed Roller Cam! Had the same basic Motor in my 95 Steeda Q SCCA T1 car and it made over 330 to the wheels.
Pulled the sucker today and will begin a write up of the build. Also more pictures to come of the step by step from the flood to this point. But since starting out as a $500 beater brought back from the dead we have about $1500 into her total and so far a killer offroad hunting truck.
