If anybody was wondering I sold what was left of the wrecked Cobra R to a guy who restores Cobra Rs, so it will back on the road in the future

Here is the emission sticker that came on the factory Cobra R hood, says 5.8

Does it look like a 351? Look how close the a/c and power steering is to the battery

I broke one of the factory A/C lines bending it to clear, so I had to get an aftermarket one, the aftermarket A/C didn't require as much bending to clear

Man that thing is HUGE in there....

Thanks, most people who see it don't believe it's a 351, lol, I am still running the Cobra 5.0 upper intake on it, since my Cobra didn't come with an upper intake, one of my customers says he has a Cobra 5.8 upper intake that he is going to sell me for cheap once he gets back to California, the other Cobra 5.8 intakes I have been finding for sale have been going for too much money for me, $1000-$1800, for that kind of money, I would put better heads and intake on this motor and make some real horsepower

I didn't build this to be a show car, I built it to be daily driver even in the rain, that's why I didn't upgrade the heads and intake, it already makes enough hp, I am already building a 1000+ hp turbo car and 700hp blower car, so I don't need another one of those, also I park this in my driveway and the paint doesn't need to be perfect, as you guys can see in the pics, I already have a car like that where I have to worry about the paint all the time, so I don't want to do that again.

plus A/C in this makes for an awesome D.D. That's for sure.

Just got some Rearend work done, 3:55 gears, Auburn Posi, Ground Pounder Girdle and longer axle studs and hopefully getting the Cobra to the dyno next week.

Great work and awesome swap ... I would have swapped the the Tfs heads and intake but that's just me . Turned out great and you got a lot of good parts off that R like the trans 351 hood etc great find and killer job .

Yes, I agree about swapping the TFS heads on the motor since I had them, but when I first started to do the conversion I thought my Cobra R motor was completely stock and I wanted to keep the setup simple with just putting a S-trim on it and keep it as a daily driver at 500hp at the flywheel, and I had no idea it was stroked to a 383, if I would have known it was stroked I probably would have put the TFS heads on it before I sold the heads, but it then be making way more than 500hp which would make it harder to drive for daily use then it would turn into more of a race project, like my other two Mustangs, which I didn't want I just wanted a daily driver, also I would have upgrade the S-Trim, upgrade the tranny, upgrade to a twin disc clutch setup or built automatic and too bigger injectors.
