^This is OJ, this truck has been my pride and joy since I was 15 years old. OJ is a 93 with a 351W and E40D trans. I can never leave this truck alone, so I figured I would start building an engine and trans for truck. I am thinking about a 408 stroker and a beefed up C6 to handle the increased horsepower and torque.


^This is The Deathtrap, this will be my engine and trans donor. Under the hood, that was there previously, is a 357W and C6 trans. The previous owner had the motor machined and rebuilt. It only has 500 miles on it since then, but it did sit for two years.

In the last few days I've started to pull the motor out of the deathtrap.





This is my tentative parts list for the engine build:

I am open to any suggestions for the engine build and transmission build. This may take me some time, I'm just a college kid so this amount of time and money will be hard to come by. Thank you for your time and your input in advance.

A 408 Stroker....nice. That will be my next choice when I get the rest of my Bronco done and my rebuilt 351W gets tired. Good luck with it. I'll subscribe to this thread and watch your progress. I noticed one of your supermotors pics that caught my attention. Where did you get the rear tire carrier? Does it rattle at all? Does it fold down so you can open the tailgate? I'm thinking of beefing up my stock carrier or getting a new rear spare carrier bumper or perhaps something like what you have.

Thank you, I actually made it. It is a 12 inch hitch extension from harbor freight welded to a piece of square tubular 1/4 inch steel. I bolted the tire mount from the stock tire rack to that. It turned out well, but the downside is that you have to remove it to open the tailgate. It does rattle a bit but I taped two washers together and stuck them underneath the extender and it fixed that problem. I was thinking about making a quick release system to remove the tire and mount from the tube steel and to remove the tube steel from the extender. Kind of like a three piece unit. This would have made it easier to open the tailgate but I figure it would rattle really bad and I never have gotten around to it.

Hard to describe but....Maybe a strong hinge welded at the bottom front edge of the horizontal 12 inch hitch extension attached to the front edge of the vertical square tubular 1/4 inch steel would work. You'd have to cut them on a 45degree angle to match up. You could weld up a thick tab with a hole in it on the backside at the bottom middle of the square tubular 1/4 inch steel. Then weld up a couple of thick tabs with holes in them to the top of the hitch extension. Join it all together with a large removable pin on the backside. Then the spare could hinge down and lay on the ground. You could lower the tailgate and stand on the tire like a step to get in the back of the Bronco.
