Yeah. I gotta believe this rework has been expensive. I've priced world heads,
injectors, axles, TB's, MSD components, Atlas II's etc...

So I also noticed you run a K&N cone filter. How do you get that to pass
visual smog inspection here in Ca? Convert back to stock?

I'm just south of you in San Jose, and had a 1980 4x4 Toyota. Dealing
with smog tests we're such a pain, that I had to sell the truck :-(. But
it did cause me to buy Fords :-).

For what it's worth, the 89 bronco's have only one fuel pump.
It's in the tank.

Had to change it recently. What a pain. I was really surprised to see open wires
*in* the tank, where the seal connects to the fuel pump. For some reason, I
expected every thing to be all sealed, etc. I guess they never expect to
see sparks in there :-).

Also, i've seen a jc whitney replacement tank that holds 33 gallons vs. the stock
23. Don't know if it's compatible with the stock skid plate though.
Something to consider.

Subject: K and N in the 2.9s.

You had a toyota!! How funny. I am dealing with a magnetic sign shop here in town to help me
design a cool magnetic sign for the tailgate of the bronco 2. It says:

<mighty blue oval up here>
Ford Bronco 2:

The official Toyota Recovery Vehicle

I removed the air box, and bought a K and N filter with the inside diameter the same size as the
outside diameter of the air hose. I then removed the spring that goes inside the ait hose, and
slipped the K and N on top of the hose. Made a big improvement in power, miles per gallon went
up and the engine was much quicker to Rev than before. When I smogg it, I simply take off the
air cone, and re attach the air box.

I think it will pass the sniffer with flying colors, but as for the visual someone will ask some
dumb questions.
