If you get real serious about a V6, I have a sweet article on a 3.8 build up, mix-and-matching parts from a windstar, mustang, and a newer F150. It had 278hp on motor alone, and 380 with a 125 shot of nitrous.davids78bronco said:I saw those about 3 years ago, and ever since then, I've wanted to build me one... no way in hell I'm going to pay 20-25K for one, even if I had the cash in hand. So, I've been trying to gather up the parts to build me a low-budget mini monster. I'm working a deal with BadBlueOval, for the axles off his Heap, and will need to get the rest. I think I'm going to plan on aerostar coils all around, get cheap with the links, and use the links from a 3-pt tractor setup. I thought about the same honda engine they used(and even bought one off ebay, for it), but decided I may as well go for the gusto, and get a domestic V6, preferably a Ford, so I can find me a cheap Eaton M90 supercharger for it. No, no 4WS, I'm on a serious budget, and can't afford 4wheel steering on my Bronco, much less an offroad toy
ok, back to your regularly scheduled program ...

Did you already fab up some sort of frame? I wonder if you could BEEF up a sand rail frame somehow? What are your plans for that?opc1:davids78bronco said:narrowed, front jeep axles. As soon as I get my axles from BadBlueOval, I'm going to round up the rest of the parts for the suspension, then look for the engine/trans. No idea when I'll be done with it, but it'll be a fun project
