Duh!!! When i had my new engine built, i had a forged cobra crank put in. Forgeting untill today, that it uses an 8 bolt pattern instead of a 6. What fly wheel should i use? will a GT flywheel work, or should i get the truck one or what?

I also need to do something about my torque converter. Any sugestions as to what i should use. Here is the set up...

New Windsor 4.6 forged shortblock, (9.3 : 1 compression, S/Cing it next winter)
New PI heads w/ stock PI cams, (oversized valves with good springs)
75mm TB, MSD, K&N, U/D pulleys, no A/C,
Shift kit, cooler, 3.73 gears w/posi, decent tires
headers, with hi-flow cats, flowmasters, (2.5 all the way).

plan to get rid of things that slow it down too, (power seat, padding, spare tire, gas tank....ect.)

Any suggestions will help. What should this thing run? (if i ever get a chance to not work 60 hours a week!)

Thanks!!!

no year mark had 8 bolt.. you need a truck flex or gt flex or that one that ford motor sports sells or the SFI one PA sells. call dan or max they know the part number of what you need.

Are you selling the flexplate or the tranny, or both? All i really need is the flex plate, but would consider the tranny too....let me know what you'd be willing to sell it for...

Oh, any idea what this set up should produce in HP, and 1/4 mile times?

Thanks!!!

If you're asking me, It's just the flexplate... the TC and tranny are in the car..
