What's the truck going to be used for? What are the plans for the 351? What trans will you be using? If you plan on using it on the street, do you have emissions testing?

You can use a carb intake, modified with injector bosses, an Edelbrock adapter elbow to go from a Holley flange to round TB and use an 80mm round mustang TB and keep the stock EFI with carb heads.

What are you looking to do with the engine? The EFI intake is specific to the EFI heads. To get any serious amount of power out of the engine the heads need work. If you buy the adapter, dump money...

Pull the carpet on the bronco, there should be a removable cover for the trans with the appropriate hole cut. There will be an indent on the f100 where it goes, but it won't be cut out. Just cut it...

You'll need drive shafts from a F150 4x4 lwb with a C6 and the same rear axle you're using. Just watch the transfer case output. The bronco is likely a flange where the F150 are usually a slip yolk....

F250 TTB pivot bracket interchange

Don't have my parts book handy. Are the F250 4x4 pivot brackets the same between the D44HD and D50? I've got a parts truck that's too nice to be a parts truck. It's an 86 F250 Supercab with a 4"...

Ok, that's kind of what I was thinking, that it wouldn't be worth it to change. There's only so much economy I'm going to squeeze out of a big old truck and the benefit of easier starting will offset...

4.10's will be a mistake? Even with 33's?

That's what's in the truck, so to change that I've got to swap gears. I'm wondering if it's worth the fuel savings, but I will be doing a lot of highway...

How timely of a thread...

What gearing were you using Conaski? I've got an F250 I'm thinking of building a 351w for and was going to use an E4OD. It's got 4.10's now and 33's. I'm wondering if it...

The fenders are non near as bad as the tailgate... That thing is made from tinfoil.

The fenders are workable, but expect to take some time fitting them. A good set of used fenders is better IMO.

300hp with an IDI is going to take a lot of work. Mid 200's is doable and will give you a nice driving truck.

Now, if you want bragging rights, then look at doing a 12v cummings swap or 460 swap....
