Few points Ian.

From what I've heard in the past the Cobrajet engines are quite wide and would struggle to fit in a lot Cobra replicas. Something that new is going to need cats to get through SVA. 10k seems a lot of money for an engine and box combo (you could get a 408 stroker windsor doing over 400bhp and tremec box for 7.5k-ish)

As Kev says these engines are very wide and wont fit in most Cobras. Ken had a complete night mare fitting one in which involved modifying the body, chassis, and steering. Bit expensive too so not so much of a bargain

I thought the original post said it was for a couple of engines? I know someone who is in process of building a car with one of these - it's in and seems to fit ok.

Or 408 windsor stroker 450+BHP 500+ ft lbs torque ..7800 usd ish...

Not knock'n the 4.6 Ford module engine... nice package..but way over most peoples heads to fix or tune..yes i said most...and a king and queens randsom

Totally agree with you fastco for bhp, and bang for buck a stroker or stock Chevy/ford V8 gets my vote everytime. I have heard good reports of LS engines and modern ford electronic controlled engines etc being fitted but my personal preference falls to a carb and lots of bling everytime.

No!.. gave him double ammunition; we must be more CAREFUL:eek:
Do like that engine, although not suitable for our cars, shame TVR didn't use it like Marcos instead of going for all that 'Speed Six' complexity, one of the MG ZT went past the other day, nice sounding(for a modern lump).
