    Well the motor and tranny are once again up in the air. :nonono:

    Option 1-

    Keep all I have already 5.0 based set up, vortech sq trim supercharger, bad azz aod, wiring, a9l, rpm intake, tb........ blah blah blah.


    Option 2-
    Sell what I have and get,
    96-98 Cobra 4.6
    t-45 or t-56 6 speed
    12 psi s trim Vortech
    I already found it complete from tranny to wiring harness and computer :)

    I'm looking to push at least 400 rwhp on either set up. Which I can do.

    I have till saturday to decide tops sunday.

    What would everyone do?
    Yes I already have the Mustang II front conversion :)
    No I have never worked on a 4.6 other than routine stuff.

    Any Ideas or words of wisdom?? :shrug:

    Also if I do go with the 4.6 would anyone here be interested on the things I have? You would have first dibs.

    I'd feel mised about that one too.

    I wouldn't want to wipe out the shock towers just for the 4.6, but since you already have the MII susp... It is an attractive idea. That and the DOHC Cobra w/ a supercharger is a fantastic setup. I've ridden in a 97 Cobra with a blower and 4.11 gears, and thats all that car needed. I can't imagine a car needing to be any faster. Ever. It was like taking off in a jet. That said, I'm sure a forced induction 5.0 would be similar.

    The main benefit of the 4.6 I think would be the wow factor. I went to a show this summer that had 3 or 4 5.0 EFI swapped cars there, but not one single 4.6.

    Just out of curiosity, what 5.0 swap stuff do you have?

    Thats exactly what I mean.
    Everything that doesn't have to do with the aod or the supercharger.
