    This is the pic of my Cobra form 2 years ago. It is in the finishing stages of being rebuilt.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    here are some of the specs on my new motor:

    351W 40 Over
    Scat crank
    KB151 Flat top pistons
    Eagle H-Beam rods
    Dart II Heads shaved to 52cc, 2.02/1.60 valves
    Stage III ported
    flow 320 at .700 intake
    flow 215 at .700 exhaust
    ARP head studs and main studs
    ISKY Cam: Billet Solid Roller LIFT 640/640, DUR INT284/EX294, DUR AT .050 IS 254/262 with a 108 center

    The car is a 78 Cobra II with a full manual c-4 and 3800 stall converter. Backed with a shortened 9" rear with 4:11s, 31 spline Mosler axles, and a trac loc unit. Just can't wait to see what it will run. Not bad for a street car. I am getting ready to paint it Artic White and install a custom set of purple 76-77 Cobra II stripes I made.

    Not much has changed since this pic was taken.... 6 months ago! :nonono:

    I've purchased turbine wheels for her since (thanks Thinkkker!) and swapped the Holley carb I was running for a Rochester 2G, but little has changed overall, she's still yet to leave the garage.

    The exterior is pretty much the same, but here is a picture of the engine compartment restoration that is nearly completed. Since this picture the distributor has been upgraded with a MSD Billet, the water pump replaced with an Edelbrock Victor aluminum, pulleys replaced with March performance V-belt aluminum, and the stock over flow container replaced with a Jaz. All I need now is an electric fan, install the horn, and one more bleeding of the brakes and she should be ready for the road.

    302 - .030 forged TRW, balanced
    E7TE's ported, screw in studs, FMS 1.72
    FMS hyd. flat tappet 290/300 & 48?/49?
    Edelbrock RPM airgap
    Carter 625 AFB
    Headman headers w/ home done aluminum coat
    Holley fuel pump
    MSD 6AL/MSD billet
    Accel SuperCoil & 8.8mm wires
    10.5" Billet flywheel
    King Cobra clutch
    World Class T-5
    B&M Short shifter
    Auburn locker 3.55
    2.5" dual to back with Flowmasters

    Future plans include replacing the front and rear bumpers, adding a spoiler, upgrading the wheels (probably Welds with either drag radials or Hoosier Quicktimes), and Weld in frame connectors. Maybe a stock II hood scoop converted to be functional. Once I get an ISP I will put some pictures up.

    Red one (the one that needs a paint job)
    My old 78 I used to have, 351w, c-4, lincoln versilli 9" with disc brakes, 3.70 gear, southsides, hedman hustler headers, 3.5 dual flowmaster exhaust (installed after photo was taken), vic jr intake, predator carb. Centerlines 15 x 3.5, and 15 x 8.5's. best 10.86 @ 125 mph. gawd I miss that car.
    Shortly after running the 10.86, car was taken in for roll cage and paint.... long story short, car ended up going to crusher as scrap.... to much hidden cancer.

    Green car was a friends, at time of picture, had a true 69 boss headed 302, and powerglide trans... later the car was sold minus engine and trans.... the new owner bought all my left over 351w swap parts headers, oil pan, motor plate, etc and is installing a 408w
