    I have a Dyno sheet on a stock motor with stock motor I will post up. I wont mess with the stock set up until I need more power. It should be more than enough


    We have the adapter for it just having trouble getting the flywheel size. Only a couple of people have done it so far

    That looks very healthy for a stock turbo setup. Nice!

    LS family of motors yeah. Not much of an issue there. The 3.5 is a Ford with very different everything.

    Very cool! Probably why I haven't heard of it done before. Those 4L80's are damn hard to beat. I'd love to swap my 4L60 in my truck to an 80 but that would require a new trans computer, drive shafts, crossmember relocation, transfer case adapter possibly... etc etc.

    Danzio has a 3.5 pulling 800Hp on a stock crank with new pistons, rods, turbos ect.

    Torque Torque Torque!!!!


    Since starting mine I have heard a few rumbling of other vehicles and even a few race trucks in testing. They run these in Australia a lot

    Motor, trans and transfer case mounts are done. The frame is boxed and ready to be assembled. Rear end comes back this week also. Looks like she may be on her feet next week

    Ok! !!!! It's been a while since I did any updates. We just did the Parker 425 Pre Run and now I can't wait to finish this project!!!!!. Now that we have the 4L80 transmission from Rancho Driveline Engineering we can start putting this thing together. One more small delay popped up, I didn't know Danzio needed the motor for 3-4 weeks to do their magic. Most of the Bronco can be finished while the motor is out. The fuel cell just came in today also.

    Once its done Im going to run it for a season and see if we need to make any changes to things that dont work. Once its all dialed in it will be stripped and powder coated and painted and upholstered

    Buy a RZR

    Curious are you going to have heat and A/C in this machine when it's done or is that out of the question?
