    when you add p.i heads to a teksid block do you still get the compression bump? and what vehicles do they come in?

    Teksid come in 4v cars prior to 2001. The continental teksid is a fwd block and will not work. I can't recall the piston info but someone else will chime in on that

    I believe the 4V pistons have a -3cc dish, so adding P.I. heads to a Teksid shortblock is going to bump the compression up to somewhere around 12:1. They are in the 96-98 Cobras and I believe some of the 99 Cobras came with the Teksid, and the Lincoln Mark VIIIs had them from 93-98...

    ^ All 99 cobras came with the teksid.

    Some have also reported that a very small number of the early 01 cobras came with the teksid before they switched over to the WAP, but nobody I know has been able to confirm this.

    Good info here! Great to see!

    They take a different bell housing and the oil filter is on the other side too.

    The block itself has nothing to do with it, if you are talking about a 4V bottom end, yeah the compression does go up, I forget how much. I've got a Teksid out of a 98 Cobra on a stand in the garage I was going to build... with the price of Coyote pullouts and Coyote rebuild candidates... probably going to just Coyote swap it.

    You also need to drive a coolant passage in the teksid block when putting 2v heads on

    I think he means drill not drive. On the drivers side deck surface, you will need to drill a 9/16" hole for coolant to pass through. If you lay a 2v gasket on the block you will see where it should be. Its at the front of the head mounting surface on the top...
