Talking New to site

Hey everyone,
Just looking for some guidance from like minded souls.
I have my old 81 Bronco in need of of some tlc, currently running 351c edel torquer roller rockers pacemaker headers etc Cam unknown.
I am considering a engine rebuild and am chasing 400hp.
Need to consider that my wife drives the kids to school in the ol girl most days so can't be to nasty.

Can you guys and girls shoot me some ideas or other posts to refer to

All help is hugely appreciated

Welcome Oz, good to have you. My first qquestion to you is, are you sure you have a 351 Cleveland? Not trying to insult you but I have seen many people trying to pass off a "M" motor as a Cleveland and your Bronco probably came with a M originally. 400 Hp is much easier to get out of a C than an M.

No offence taken falconate, Mate I've had a couple of clevos when I was much younger in falcons actualy. This one def is as the motor isn't orig. Been without a v8 for too long so not up speed with current ways of getting hp. Biggest drama is I have 35" bf goodies on it, which take some spinning esp wit the c6. Starting to chase all sorts of electrical gremlins too as it looks like all the previous owners have had a go at it.
All advice or helpful hints accepted

Re: New to site

With 35s and a c6, you need to build more for torque than horsepower. Also, what gears do you have in the diffs?
