How much more power are you going to get though? Aren’t the 2.7L and 3.0L the same block - basically you end up doing a bore and stroke and both blocks are going to max out at the same displacement making it a moot point in the end. Again why would someone pay $5-10-15K more for essentially the same engine with a different tune?By that logic, you could tune the 3.0 (not sure where this number comes from as no one has the information outside of Ford) to make even more power. That is why you have to compare factory to factory or tuned to tuned.
I know you don't like turbos, but I'm wondering if you are still planning to buy a Bronco and doing an V8 swap.
Why do I want to pay $60K to have an engine that is near no different than the engine in the tuned $38k Bronco that just dusted my ass with its Honda Civic exhaust note? There will always be someone more powerful but I don’t want to pay more and still be on the bottom of the totem pole.
Right now I’m heavily leaning towards a 7.3L Tremor with 4.30 gearing, and playing the waiting game on the Bronco to see what Ford does.
The Tremor package with that engine is incredible.
