There is no guarantee that the 1999 Lightning will be put into production
yet, much less with a Super Charger. I have a friend that works for SVT and
he said preliminary 1/2 mi runs are 14.6s, which are damn good, but he said
without the SC, the runs are around 15.7s, much like the current stock
Lightning.

I look for SVT to release the Lightning in 99 without the SC.

I have never seen a 454SS(Super Slow) or Dodge RAM Pace Truck run under
16.2's stock. With the stock Lightning running 15.6 stock that .6sec is
quite a bit to make up in the 1/4 mi.

I have run several of them here in Oklahoma and whether on the street or
strip, I love to see them in my rear view mirror.

Subject: Re: 92' Bronco Engine Swaps

Stock my Lightning ran 15.5s in Oklahoma conditions.

With just Flowmatser mufflers, a K&N, NGK plugs, a brass cap and rotor,
pulleys, and shift kit the truck ran 15.2s. Which is damn good for a truck
weighing 4800lbs.

With my current setup I am running 13.8s on street tires and 13.5s on
slicks. Traction is my problem. I am having some Rancho Traction bars as
we speak. That should get me to13.3s. Currently the truck weighs in at
4600lbs. I have added a roll pan and with the removal of the stock heads,
which were 101lbs alone, allowed me to shed some weight.

I also have a Vortech S-trim in the garage waiting to be bolted on. That
should put me in the 12.2-12.5 range and will be my stopping point. If I go
any faster I would have to modify my frame with a roll cage.

Subject: 302-6 EGR tube problem

I was looking at modifying an ERG tube on a 302 V8 I was told metal electrical
conduit would work. It will fit over the old tube and can be welded and bent.

You might want to post this to the bronco digest at www.big-broncos.com
Someone might have an old one you could have.
