Down at the shop I am surrounded by the General. Big ones and little ones,
Blown ones and Turbo ones. And so after a while you just become numb... Oh
look, it's another thousand horse Rat, Big deal!)
Then out of the blue comes a 302+30 (or a 5.0 for the young buckz) this
Mouse Trap lives in a SCCA type track toy and was built in the guys garage.
Now this will bring a grin and shatter that numbness!
So, this little mouse killer jumps to life and we have the sweet sound of
pure Ford Power :-) No, it is not the most powerful engine that I have seen
but it is the first Ford in a long time! For a vary conservatively built
engine with 0.50 Valve Lift, Hyp. Pistons, Dual Plane, etc... Through the
mufflers he made 350+ HP and it would spin to 7200RPM though it had quit
making power by this time.

The point her is to illustrate that you don't have to have "all" of the
trick stuff to build a "Runner". I suppose that I am writing this mostly to
remind myself of this. When you only read about all of the things that the
big boys do it's one thing; but when you are involved in building their
toyz, well, it rubs off. I wonder if this knowing how to do something
right, and having the capability to do it is the reason that my Bronco is
sitting...
SWMBO says that I may have lost-it as even the Beer Budget is going into the
Truck! Good thing that it's been raining!!!
Well I hope that this post is not too far off topic... But... These woyrdz
had to go some where and this looked like a fairly empty space.

Anyone have any experience with the DynoMax Round Welded "Race" Muffler, how
much sound attenuation can I expect? Thanks to Uncle Sam I have to put the
Cat's back on so I will loose some Sound volume there, but I have to pass a
sound check at the same time as the sniffer:(
Anyone ever seen a 4" Dia. Cat. Then I could keep the big cam and make all
the power that I originally designed this engine for!

If you reply, don't forget to trim.
Going to work on truck now.

My 94 Lightning is speed density..they were in 95 too! Not everything
got mass air unfortunately! You can still change the cam, or even heads
but you want see any performance from them to you get the mass air!

To my knowledge, Mustangs got Mass Air in '89 but trucks did not until at
least '96. This is based on my SVO catalog, which lists Mass Air
conversion kits for Mustangs '86-'88 and for trucks '87-'95 (only 5.0L
kits, plus a special kit for Lightning trucks). BTW, they cost $679.95 .
I'm 99% certain my '94 uses speed density. I believe that the best way
to identify Mass Air trucks is by the single air intake tube from the
airbox to the sensor, which then splits into two at the throttle body.
Speed density systems have a double tube all the way from the box to the
throttle body.

Cams are available for the 300 from Clifford Performance
(www.cliffordperformance.com), along with lots of other stuff like
manifolds and headers. Wolverine/Blue Racer also makes cams for the Big
6, available from J.C. Whitney. Both companies' cams have about double
the stock lift, and the Wolverine cams are a dual pattern grind.

Anyone know more? lordjanusz juno.com

What's going into the Bronco? (aside from beer)

Plenty more. Crane makes cams for the 300 I6 as well as Crower and Comp
Cams. There might be others, but I only have catalogs for the ones I
listed. Crower seems to have the widest selection.
