Well i ordered up an intake off a 98 LSC with TB and intake tube. I currently had the 93 intake which looked like it would be a PIA to get to fit and work. Question for any of you guys, I bought a set of manifolds from a guy and he sent me his 98 cobra TB with it. Will that make any difference to use that over the Lincoln TB? Or will it even bolt up?

the throttle body has been almost identical on all 4v engines. the 03/03 cobra was a bit different but they all mount the same way. might as well use the 98 cobra throttle body he sent you but you will gain nothing.
as for cams: the aviator, marauder, Mach1, terminator, and gt500 all have the same cams while the MkVIII cams may be SLIGHTLY different but i doubt it. the ideal cams are 96-98 cobra followed by 99/01 cams. i did a mkVIII swap a year ago so if you have any questions let me know

well guys got the motor all pulled and most of the parts swapped over. hopefully this week ill try droppin er back in.
I had a couple guys helpin tear it down over the weekend, and one of them was under the car pulling the DS and started laughing histerically for almost 5 minutes straight... i couldnt figure out why he was laughing until he pushed the DS out from under the car. I completely forgot i did this almost 4 years ago haha.

yea, that clutch is looking a bit--should we say "well worn". Too bad your on such a tight budget, sucks you could get the new clutch while its all apart. Just gives you a reason to tear back in to it again later

i had a poblem with the clutch when i first got installed it. I dont think the flywheel was turned down completely true. as you can see there are hot spots on really only the one half of it, so im guessing that side was a little high. So i got a crap ton of chatter from it for about 1000 miles. Now it drives smooth and grips well... but idk exactly what the issue was. my guess would be it only has about 6k miles on it :-/ the disc is perfect, still has a lot of material left on it.

and like you said, gives me something to do, the joys of having 2 cars

Did that cobra intake you bought come with imrcs because the ones from your mkviii intake aren't compatible with the cobra intake.

The imrc plates off 93-96 mkviii engines had dual round ports per cylinder and the intake manifold reflected that in design. The 97-98 mkviii had one round and one circular port per cylinder and therefore the imrc was different.96-98 cobras had the imrc you want also. The

well the two things i was waiting on so i could put the motor in, came on friday. Exhaust manifold studs and the oil cooler gasket. So heres the motor installed. I tried to get the motor to drop in with the h-pipe bolted up, which is a long shot I know. It almost dropped right in, and we massaged the motor a little, but couldnt get the pipe to squeeze past the steering shaft. but other than that, the motor seriously fell into place with little to no effort. Ive heard people say that putting the engine in is a pain, im not sure what they were doing to make it hard, but i got mine bolted in and half the wiring ran in under an hour. but anywho, the stuff people really wanna see, pics lol

I took a couple pics of the 93-95 intake manifold set on the motor. I knew it wouldnt fit, i just wanted to see how close it was. Well its about a good 3 inches too far forward, the sensors on the back of the TB are up against the firewall. Just some food for thought.

Well i got a couple goodies from the post office today. Intake manifold, new o2 sensors, and fuel rails. Im surprised to see most of the parts off the 2v intake and tb bolt up to the cobra intake. The TPS bolted right up, as did the IAC. The only issue with the IAC is the GT uses a vacuum port built onto the sensor, and the Cobra uses one that is integrated into the manifold. You can see the issue this presents in the photos. It sits higher than the manifold does, so hood clearance issues, but i might try cutting it down and capping it off. We'll see how that goes.. oh i also got my cobra throttle cable.

This swap looks like its coming along nicely, When doing 4v swap with long tubes its alot easier to drop the k frame and trans crossmember and put everything through the bottom IMO, how much wiggling did you have to do to drop that in from the top?

It honestly fell straight in. I tried putting the motor in with the h-pipe attached(just for ****s and giggles) and that failed miserably lol. but with the exhaust off, i lowered it all in, had to jack up the tailshaft of the trans, had to drop the motor onto the k-member about a foot forward of where it was to re-position the chains, and then gave it a solid push back and it fell it. The motor did not fight us at all going in. All in all, it was very very easy going in.

ya know, I'm not really sure either. the ports on the IAC lined up with the ones on the manifold. but there are two very different hose locations. We'll see what happens. Worse thing is ill have to go out and get an IAC.
