I decided to take a break from the car itself for a bit.

Starting on the heart of the beast....



We think it is a '95 Cobra motor, as it had some '95 Cobra items on it, but I have my doubts.

The motor came out of a drag car and a lot of the good stuff was taken off, the roller rockers and valve covers, but the stock Cobra intake went back on and the cobra sized injectors.

As soon as I get more of it stripped down I want to find the ID #'s on the heads and block and find out exactly what I got.

Engine project clean up started..

To refresh your memory's.



The tear down.



Degunked and wire wheeled down.

Notice the ARP head studs, we think it had a super charger on it at one point.






Wiped down and painted.

Engine is just about done.





The carb is just set on because it will have to come off so I can lift the motor off the stand.
The alternator is just a place holder trying to figure things out until I get a new one.

The Sanderson headers fit great with the GT40P heads.
