Yeah, it's a great car! Small and lightweight compared to today's cars.Yes in a car that's only 3,000 lbs with No Torque management. Throttle response is still one of the quickest in a normally aspirated production car. Also, all the LS6's I seen dynoed was well above the 405hp stock.
A performance dyno tune is definitely at the top of my mod list, time will tell with what the tuners can produce but I expect your numbers at the engine should be within reason.Man, I missed all the excitement today.....been busy at work. 418 and 440 is cool. I'd have been happy regardless since 400hp is very respectable.
A tune is going to really wake this up once tuners get their hands on one. The BRaptor already has a much less restrictive (40% less restrictive IIRC) exhaust system than the regular Bronco so I don't expect much to be gained there.
With a mild tune I wouldn't be surprised to see 450 hp and 480 lb ft of torque.
Are you planning on useing one of those plug-in throttle response enhancers too? I haven't used one but as I understand it, it helps get rid of some of the built in sluggishness off the line. Not more power but quicker throttle input.A performance dyno tune is definitely at the top of my mod list, time will tell with what the tuners can produce but I expect your numbers at the engine should be within reason.
I don't think I'd like it to be touchy either even in the street.I had one of those in my slingshot. I didn't like it. It made it more responsive but it made the accelerator very touchy to input so it bucked all the time unless you floored it. I would think that's not a good idea on the trails sluggish might be good 😀
Not planning on a throttle controller on the Bronco Raptor, if it needs one we will all be disappointed (highly unlikely!). I have a Hikeit X9 on my wrangler and we like it, a lot. Originally the 3.6V-6 felt very sluggish, totally opposite of the same engine in the durango or charger, etc. It doesn't add HP, but feels like another 200hp. Reason is the throttle body on a stock JK when you floor the pedal off the line the throttle body doesn't open immediately, it opens partially... maybe 30% then gradually keeps opening. The X9 has many different levels and eliminates the slow to respond throttle body therefore it really does accelerate noticeably faster off the line. The X9 also has a setting to bypass (stock) so if you do go off road you can have the same original response as Jeep intended. There is also a "Hikeit" mode which feels like full closed or full open throttle and I don't understand why this would ever be used.Are you planning on useing one of those plug-in throttle response enhancers too?
