Got me a 70 F100

Hey all,

I just happened to find myself in posesion of a 70 F-100 with a 360 for about $350. Which is cool because it runs and has a new Battery and a Solenoid. SO! my question to all of you is the following.

I know the F-100 is great looking but how rugged is the frame/body? in terms of HP capability? I only ask because I seem to have a friend that has a Dyer's blower that was for his 390. He sold his 71 but not the blower And since I've been told that the 360 and the 390 can exchange parts pretty well I think it'll fit.

So what will I need to do to re-enforce the truck's body/frame. In order to make it able to handle some increased HP?

The frame should handle it, it would be the engine mounts I would beef up, front and rear.
