Cobra's have 1.7's in them though.....
The cobra's use a different head casting
(F3ZE-6049-AA
GT-40)
Whitch were designed to use them..

Depending on the amount of driving you are going to do you might just want to do a cam and get a 1.6 roller rocker set... 1.7s are hard on the valvetrain... Ford put 1.6s there for a reason...
