Thumbs up A good kill list... in my 66 bronco

Hey guys, heres one for you. I own a 1966 Ford Bronco with a 289HO with a cam, 4bbl intake, headers, exhaust, full roller top end, 10.1 compression... all put through the stock three speed and 4.10 gears, but anyway to the story. I have a friend that owns a late 80s early 90s Firechicken with a LS1 under the hood, pretty nice car, but anyway out behind a couple of stores about 12.00 at night me and all the rest of my posse got out of work and were going home, I was giving him a hard time and he was like lets go, so we did. In the 1/4 I totally KILLED HIM, no lie, really, I was running 33" mudders and spun em at the start. I dont think he is a fully competent driver, but he does have a auto, which would just be smash the gas. After that, another guy in a surburban wanted to go, I beat him by god knows how much, then about a 79 chevy pickup, then a late 90s BMW 3 series. I dont know what did it that night, but I should have been going for slips... thatll never happen again.

LS1 huh? Maybe an L98 motor. If in fact it was a 5.7L and not a 5.0L.

that is awsome, my friend Ryan who also has an older Bronco was driving back from offroading when two MR2's came up on both his sides, he was not driving but his girlfreind was, he was sort of shifting for her. so the piped him and they did nothing. well the light turned so the MR2's starting going, then as the got trogh the intersection my freind told his girlfriend to punch it and pass them real quick, they trided to catch up, but he totally killed them, when they caught back up they were all mad and flicking him off. i bet it was SOO funny to see his face laghfing back at them!

Nice Kill! I love those old bronco's. It's one of my future vehicles. They are great off road. And not that heavy for street racing either

i had a 73 bronco, 347 stroker, 4.11 gears, dual flows....it was built for a dirt race truck then i got it and made it for the street, bright yellow, no doors, full roll cage, 4" suspension lift with 35" mickey thompson baja claws on 16x10 eagle alloy rims. it was awesome. i outran many of my friends z71's and f150's. they have theirs modded out, my cousin even has a 88 f150 4x4 with 33" mudkings running a 302 that is completely modded and it used to be the fastest til he pulled beside my bronco. bronco was an auto and when i took off i could spin thru 1st and 2nd then when it would hit third u could feel the rear end move over a lil bit, it was very strong. never got a chance to hit any mud i ended up sellin it and buyin an s10 so i could have a heater for the winter. just thought id share that. nice bronco tho man, im gonna build another very soon.....well as soon as i supercharge the stang.

I bet it was a late 80s TPI (Tuned Port Injection) Engine.

It said Corvette on the intake probably cuz it was a aftermarket lid. Why it said Corvette i don't know because their intake is 100% different.

It could have been an LT1. Highly unlikely but possible. Hey just cuz the LS1 didnt come out til 98 doesnt mean that a 91 Trans Am couldnt have it. There are sevral F-bodies out there that do. I used to be a member on 3rdgen.org and trust me some of those guys had some sleepers. You can slap an intake from a 350 corvette onto another 350 block. Some of GM's parts for their motors from the 283 to the sb400 are intercahngeable(heads.headers,intakes.. that stuff). Just cause it says corvette on it doesnt mean that it wont fit a firebird's 5.7. Both the TPI and TBI setups are interchangeable bewteen the motors.
