Re: 390 in 8o bronco
Why would you want to ? What engine did the bronco come with ? Do you have any idea of what a 390 weighs ? Do you have shares in the oil industry ? A 390 at the best is 10 miles to the gallon at 30 M.P.H. or 80 M.P.H. i know, i found out the hard way. There are better engines out there with more H.P. to weight ratio than the 390.
390 stock is about 200 hp. and can go to 320. depends on what the motor came from.
A stock cast iron motor weighs about 675 lbs. Will the front suspension on your bronco
hold up the 390 ? I don't think so. Bottom line. You can make anything fit anything if you have a big enough hammer, a torch, and a welder. As far as how much work will it take, can't tell you. Every mod is different. Try it and you will find out. Good luck.
