my budget build for 2013 gathering up the pieces !
Still gathering up the pieces for this fall/winter build but I had these 93 cobra valve covers powder coated the color is called "Black Wrinkle" I went with these valve cover because I know they will clear the 1.7 rockers unlike the stock gt ones. They also didn't start stamping the cobra name on these valve covers until 94,these are the old steel/metal covers...
Here's what i have for the fall budget build......
Gt 40 heads (F3ZE) rebuilt
original 93 cobra intakes
1.7 crane rockers new
255 walbro fuel pump new
accufab 70mm tb
75mm 19lbs maf new
bbk ceramic shorty headers new
arp stainless steel header bolts
Ford motorcraft waterpump new
h-pipe high flow cats
Aluminum drive shaft
Aluminum two core radiator new
93 cobra valve covers
The powder coating is the most important part of this project because I want everything to look clean and nice for the cars shows ! The 50 more hp that the build will bring is just a bonus not important it's "detailing" i'm looking for with the hood open.That's the cherry on the top ! Still waiting for all these pieces to be done...
Just had the heads pressure tested they came back good and are ready for install !
Ok guys another piece complete this is my lower cobra intake glass beaded and powder coated the upper one will be done in a couple more days the same way.I bought all new ARP 6 point stainless steel bolt kit for the upper part of the engine build.
About eight more weeks or so we'll start putting the pieces together it should look really nice when it's done !
Another piece of the puzzle is done..The new cobra metal Plaque is on it's way will be putting on..... for the cherry on top !
I'm picking these pieces up over the weekend, I'll get a pick of all it together along side the cobra valve covers just give you an idea of what the top of this motor is going to look like ....
Ok I picked up my cobra intakes today and Here's the final results they were cleaned,glass beaded,powder coated color: (oem silver) and than clear coated ! My friend that did them for me said on the top intake alone he had 8 hrs into it and man you sure can tell it looks GREAT " I have an accufab chrome TB going on along with the 6 point polished ARP bolt kit for the upper parts of this motor there's a lot more detailing to go !
