OK, I was offered a sweet deal for an old bronco that has a motor swap. The motor is a 350 v8, that was bored, and built to be in some muscle car, but the motor and tranny was swapped into the bronco. The bronco also had some huge rally wheels and rubbers that the guy said I could prolly sell for $500. The interior is gone, and the truck may have some rust. I haven't seen it yet, but going on what the guy says...it's fast as hell, and it eats gas like crazy..about 10 mpg. Now, here's the delima. I just dropped a running Z motor in my Datsun, and I found another built Z motor with carbs, cam, headwork, header,and exhaust. The guy is offering his full setup for a v-8 swap. He prolly already has all the parts for his swap, so I'll need to come up with some money to get his set-up. The Z engine setup that he has for sale is this: '81 F54 flat top with P90. Head shaved and cam towers shimmed. Fresh 3 angle valve job with longer valves out of N42. Schneider 480/274 cam. New timing set. Dellorto 40's. MSA 6 into 2 header. ZX dizzy. Centerforce dual friction clutch. 3 trannies (280Z wide ratio 5 speed, ZX close ratio 5 speed, 260Z 4 speed). Going to the dark side (small block chevy). Need to recoup some cost. I have $600 in machine work in the head alone. Make me an offer. with that set up, he's near about 8.9 to 9.5 CR, and prolly close to 200 or so hp. I can swap the carbs, head, exhaust mani on in a week, and be rolling with a few more hp than I have now. And a spare block and trannys sitting around for spares. But.... IF I can score the bronco for a good price..and drop it into my Z, next winter, what would I have? Hp on that motor is still unknown..but sucking that much gas, it should be fast as hell. Or....score the bronco and sell it and see if my cash will return with more cash?.... It's been about 15 years since I screwed around with V8's...and I'm a little rusty on them.
