Mike, very cool! I don't know a lot about the newer 'Stangs--have always been more into trucks. I bet that's a blast at the strip!

I'm sure the Bronc could do lots better--even with the 4.56 gears I was just going into 3rd (70 mph) at the finish line (shifting manually at around 5500, IIRC, with my ratchet shifter). It's got a 351 bored .30 over stroked .75" (offset ground crank) so is right around 425 c.i.--lots of torque :-) I still have it, but the body is pretty much rotted away due to the road salt here in Maine so it sets in the yard. If I stopped dumping money into the Jeep I could probably find a car to drop the engine into--something to dream about.

Regards,
Michael
