    ok well yesterday i got a call from a friend saying that he had found a new edge cobra that had been rear ended well at the end of this month i was gana do a ported pi swap but with this on the menu now wat do you guys think i should do swap motors or do the pi swap o he didnt tell me the year or the milage on the cobra... so anyways how ard would it be to swap out the 2v for a 4v anyway and is it worth the trouble if the price is right

    if you are doing the labor,it could be very worthwhile...but doing mods on a 4v is more expensive that a 2v. cams are like $1000+ :eek:


    if the price is right on it, and it has decent miles, then i would go for it.

    eh, for 6k, I would rather buy a better built motor.. Termi's are nice, but for the prices that people are wanting.. no way..

    6k isn't really that bad...for a built motor plus supercharger, you would have a hard time putting together a motor similar to a termie and get a supercharger and still be under 6k.

    yeah, 6k isn't too bad, but lately i've been seing them go for upwards of 10K, and some with trannys for 12K...
