Watch out for blowby on those EFI's.
I had a pcv hose/breather on the back of motor clog up and it seemed to blow all the oil seals.
My favorite motor by far is the 300, nothing to fancy, but can get the job done.
e4od was better post 95. many problems addressed. mine has been very strong. no o/d when towing solves problems
300 is my fav. too. not sure if broncos still had them in the later years as f150 did like mine I love.
I say 95-96 MAF 300 if it exists. if not, my vote is whatever doesn't have a 302 in it. pig motor for bronco. 300 or 351 only. That's what I would buy.
