EN­GINE SPEED (RPM)

Hot Rod - - Hot Rod To The Rescue -

Tuned up on Westech Per­for­mance’s Su­perFlow chas­sis dyno, the Bronco’s 9.3:1 349ci mo­tor de­vel­oped a peak 338 lb-ft of torque and

269 hp at the rear wheels. Av­er­age num­bers be­tween the 3,907 rpm torque and 4,692 rpm hp peak points were 323 lb-ft and 264 hp. It was all done by just 5,000 rpm, likely do to the camshaft run­ning out of steam just when the huge heads re­ally come into their own.
