    I was reading a post in another forum and (hold on to your seats lol) believe it or not theres a guy in there that wants to put 2v heads on a 99 cobra. I asked him why in the world he would do that and his answer was weight reduction. :dunno:
    I just about got him talked out of it but we are discusing other options and i wasnt sure if he had a forged lower or not.

    Thanks stevo

    2v heads in a 4v cobra , because of weight reduction........
    im not going to say anything, lets all walk away and pretend that was never said . EVER .
    BTW, only the crank is forged steel.
     
  6. instead...

    take a solid axle out of a GT... that will save 10x more weight then swapping heads... and you wont lose power either... lmao

    not to mention the fact that you reduce the chance of having a broken shaft by 99.99999999999999 % ;D

    OK heres an update on this guy LMAO. There is no changing his mind he wants to swap out so if anyone wants a good set of 4v heads i can get em . LMAO WTF? :hammer:

    I guess the moral to this story is: Some guys were just not made to own a cobra.

    I cant believe he is that convinced in this idea :( :( has he not called any " professional " shops to get their opinions on this?? He needs too, they all will tell him how STUPID THIS IDEA IS :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh:

    The smart thing to do would be to keep your mouth shut and offer him $250 for both, port and polish them and be greedy or Ebay'em :pimp2:

    i think i know what he wants to do. in his avatar it says he has 99 GT. he probably got himself a 96-98 longblock and wants to use the teksid block for weight savings. perfectly undestandable now. all he has to do is this to put 2v heads in teksid block

    Ya know it just erks me that some guys wont do a little research and find out what to do. Everything done to my car came from damn forums LOL. Read and fkin learn. This guy is just thick. Im sure all you guys no someone like this LMAO. No matter what, they know better. He will end up with 2v heads, a giant wing on it, and some stupid ugly ass graphics down the side of a once beutiful cobra.
