No real updates on the rig... But I did run the Mud run at the local fair.

Raced my Bronco in sportsman class(the lowest one), and ended up with a 3rd out of 15, not bad for just a stock 200K 5 speed bronco with lockers and 34x9's.

The truggy ended up in "outlaw bog" class, because of the 4 link.. Basically an anything goes class. I ended up with a 4rth, and a 4.6 second pass, first was 3.6 seconds, and the three trucks that beat me were all trucks that normaly run superstock(38x11's and 600hp)

I was VERY happy with how it ran for a stock 170K mile fuelie 460.. I dumped the clutch at 4K in 2nd gear low, and it turned 6K all the way through..

headman efi headers, modified somewhat to clear the driveshaft, and for non Y-pipe usage.

Small lame update..

I hauled it down to Howies mudbog over labor day weekend. Good times, I thought about entering the Mud rythem Hill n' Hole race, but opted against it because I would like to dial the shocks in a bit more first(that and staying sober till 5:30pm would be tough)

Truck ran great, untill the water pumped puked. Being that I have to pull the front of the motor apart do a water pump, I'm tossing a Lunati voodoo 61600 in it as well. Others have reported good gains with it, so we will see..

The lockrite started skipping in the front again as well, so looks like its Detroit time..

Also, the superduty killed a CPS on the way home on the freeway in holiday weekend traffic.. I thought I had a spare in the glove but, but didn't.. The best lessons are hard learned I guess.

What are the specs on the motor otherwise? Still speed density?

After trying an ARB myself and seeing others expirement with various other things I've been a Detroit fan for years. Running a Yukon grizzly front in my 60 and love it.

Those 7.3s will do that... I always carry a CPS just for that reason.

Otherwise totally stock, speed density. Others online have ran the 61600 with good results on stock efi. I'll move the IAT sensor to the airbox to fatten it up, and might end up putting a adjustable fpr on it.

I also found that it has e7te heads, and not f3te's... which means at some point either the heads, or whole engine was changed..

Will be interested to hear your impressions on a basically stock engine.

Nice headers, look like they flow well.

Slap a motorcraft cps in there if you havent already, keep other as spare. they seem to be sort of like ford icm's, most are junk..


Good looking ride

I'm fairly happy with them, they are kinda a coldwater blacksmith worked header, as they need to clear a cast iron 400M bellhousing, with a 5/8" spacer, and a homebrew slave cylinder setup. I figure the slightly kinked tubes are offset by the 3" snort pipes and "almost mufflers", I had 3 sets of panties hanging on my mailbox that night after I fired it up for the first time, so the neighbors must agree..


As for the CPS, it had a gray one in it, and it now has VatoZone Gray one in it.. The spare that I thought was in my glove box was a ford black one, if I can find that, I'll put it in, otherwise I'll order a IH blue one.

I finaly got around to putting the BBK adjustable FPR on it, set to 45psi, it seemed to make a big difference on the big end, it pulls hard to 5K now, and helped all across the rpm range. Personally I thought the bottem end was more than ample before, but wanted a bit more rpm range from it. Now it's almost silly in from 1200 up.. It reminds me of when I was driving truck back in college... Let the clutch out on a 3406B cat @120K lbs, and you swear it lifts the left front tire... It's a shame ford didn't cam them this way from factory..

I drove my 95' f-350(stock aside from a good 3" exhaust) to get some lumber today, the difference is quite remarkable... Sadly I'm now inclined to put a cam/springs/headers on my plow truck..
