    awesome. . . we're using a 300ci in my friend 80 F100 4x2 DUNE buggy, I'll snap some pictures tomorrow. It's torn down pretty bad. we taking the cab off, using a carrier bearing on the steering, and putting the seats about 1 foot in front of where the rear axle is now. then moving the axle as far back as possible and scooting the engine and tranny back a couple feet. then runnin front tractor tires up front and my old mickeys in the back when i get new tires.

    Alot of people don't relise the amount of torque you can get out of a inline 6 motor. For what you're building, that 250 should be a monster. Are you planning on keeping it stock, or building up that 250 ??? You can get things like a header, preformance cam, intake manifold, ... ect. Just can't remember the URL right now or I'd post a link for y'all. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    IIRC, Clifford Performance carries high performance stuff for them. I know they do for the 300. They make some high quality stuff. Definitly worth a look!
