Great stuff! Love the build!
fantastic build!!! wow. just wow.
have you thought about measuring the crank and the rods to try and figure out the new displacement?
Thanks, I wish the hood was in better shape, it looks terrible in this pic, small damage from the accident when it was on the cobra R.
Thanks, I couldn't believe I got a trophy
i just called Scat with the numbers I had on the crank and they said it was a 3.750 stroke
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
Really nice swap. Great work.
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
Man that thing is HUGE in there....
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
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.
I'm in all.. Great write up/build.. Awesome work.. Wow!!
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.
very nice build. nice bonus on the the stroked 351!
