Interior is nothing specail. I used to have racing seats and seat delete but traded back to some leathers. Gonna clean the heck out of it and get another seat delete. I just got done doing a 4v swap and getting it tuned on the 21st. Looking for 500 + hp with some nitrous. We'll see.
Here is a pic of the motor.
97 teksid aluminum cobra block ,cobra crank, ultra lite i beam rods, je pistons. All ARP hardwars top and bottom. Stock 01 heads, ported 99 intake, BBK twin 65mm tbody, JLT RAI, Hooker longtubes, o/r x pipe, maganaflow catback, aluminum d/s, spec stage III clutch, billet aluminum flywheel with the weight reductin option, 4.30 gears, 150 shot of nitrous. MSD coil packs and wires, NGK plugs, Steeda shifter, stock tranny. AJE tubular k member, H&R springs, Tokico struts and shocks, full length subframe connectors,
Axles and trac loc are getting attention next.
FFW 2003 in Houston it ran an 11:43 @118. That was when it was a stock spec'd 97 Cobra motor with a few bolt ons untuned. I am hoping to crack the 10 sec barrier with the new combo and a tune this time.
All that with a/c, heat, and full interior.
Nick said:ON street tires and old combo all I could get was 12.9 untuned. Going to the track in a couple weeks so I'll let you know.
As for the swap. I used my stock harness, had to extend a few wires. I am gonna use an sct xcal as well for the tune. Cams...well STOCK 01. You'll be surprised how well Ford did with these and the 96-98 for that matter if you wanna drive the car a lot and use nitrous.
Anymore ?'s just ask.
And yes its pearl. The cam covers and intake are powdercoated single silver. No clear. The powdercoater said they would yellow a little if he did the two step silver.
