Around here, there are mostly riced out Civics making 400WHP, and Mustangs/Challengers making 900WHP. 700WHP (under a OBD-I regular plate) is the state max. No one, and I mean no one around here has a twin system. Everyone is under the impression that turbo and super together are impossible. So around this part of the US its VERY unique. Plus there are more pot-holes than road. BTW, "mod motor"? Explain... Do you mean the Teksid? Everyone always said the Teksid is one of the best (if not best block) possible.

Also, 50K is the limit I'm giving myself for everything left. Paint, the rest of the salvage body work, exhaust, possible (in worse case) labor cost, and misc parts (bolts and hangers anyone?), etc. That is the cost of everything that has left to be done before I see perfection.
The rods in the 2v have the same power limit as a 4v...........................unless were talking an 03-04 cobra. "Mod monders" can be classified as the overhead cam mustang engines 96 and up, they also appear in other vehicles as well but well keep this as basic as possible.

Yes. This is my buddy Bruce's Tbird. 393 SBF carbureted with a vortech on E85. Made 900rwhp must be nice to be sponsored by vortech and quickfuel.



You might recognize it since it has been in countless magazines.

I know The Mark VIII and Cobra 4V are similar but they are definitely different. You claim the motor is out of a 96 Cobra but it is very clear it is not

That T-Bird is sick. I've seen it many times over the web. A really unique car.

I know. Intake cam, valves, cast vs forged bottom end. But, the blocks when completely stripped are identical.

96-98 Cobras did NOT have a forged bottom end, they had a forged crank. The rods and pistons were not forged hence they have the same power limit as the rods/crank in a 2v.
