View Full Version : What would you do with $1500 (W350)

Sold my bronco today ( :( I miss it. If the guy who bought it is on this site, take care of 'er. [cheers] ) And now I have a nice budget for my dodge.

What should I do, before I start driving it around? I have new fenders coming for it, and I'm putting new brakes on it this weekend ( [36] ) along with a new set of hubs.

So with my remaining budget of $1500, what would you suggest I work on next?

hahaha, I wish. I'll get another one sometime, probably a 78-79 model.

But now I want to build my dodge.

maintain everything: replace belts, hoses, change all fliuds, clean the bastard,check the brakes,new plugs, rotor, wires.... get it 100% before you start modding it for betting performance. And of course get good tires

if you do top end mods always do something to beef up your bottom end otherwise youll end up like me

That's just a Ford thing there, bud. The only bolt ons that require bottom end upgrades are the ones that force air in. Although upping compression can cause problems too.

Intake, headers, and a cam. Cams are by far the best bang for your buck, but they're also the hardest to get right. I like the Comp XE series, I had an XE256 in a 318 and it was sweet. Sounded just a little bit mean too. In a 360 you could probably get away with an XE262, especially if it's stick-shift. Personally I'd still stick with the 256 for an auto though, those old smogger mills didn't have much for compression ratio. Don't go wild on the intake, just a mild alu dual plane is good. Keep in mind your carb will be tuned horribly wrong after doing these mods. Headers and decent exhaust is just a no-brainer after all this. Forget cold air intakes and bullshit like that, with these mods you'll actually feel the difference...
