    i think getting a dif engine would be a cheaper route than modding the v6..any suggestions on what engine to use? i just wanna get ideas of what i would have to spend to get around the cobra's 390hp or above....and if i got the new engine what else would i have to replace besides getting a better suspension? links would be helpful too! thanks

    yea mines a 5spd also and i was looking at some 351s too, pretty nice...so thats it just motor mounts, tranny and a radiator huh maybe better gears in the back and t-lok and a shifter if thats all.....hmmm maybe ill end up getting it sooner than planned

    you will also need the 351 flywheel and clutch and the computer,harness and fuel injection stuff. but i am going carbed to get away from all of that wiring mess. you may have more things to change like crossmember and driveshaft
