on the 99+ GT's

horsepower is 260 and toque 300. on the 94-98 gt's the hp was 225 i believe and toque 290.. overall i've read here many times the 99+ engine would be the one to get.

Cobras make about 320 crank hp, compared to the birds 205 crank hp. I think you can subtract from there! :D

ok

is the only plus to the 99 gt motor the price? because i will get the cobra if it makes more power, even if it is a little more expensive. ( or a lot more xpensive+)

but what about the lincoln mark VII 's? they are dohc, correct? how do they compare to the cobra, horsepower wise?

thanx,
ROSS

mark VIII horse power.....

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIIIs had 280 stock and the LSC had 290 but I think that was only because the LSC had dual exhaust.They have different cams and intakes compared to the Cobra but everything is pretty much interchangable.
Hope this helps,
Chris

a 99 GT will only be about .25 seconds slower than a cobra. for the $$$ difference you could make the 99 GT engine faster.

SOHC. Easier, Cheaper, Faster, and IMHO more streetable.

hey if cost is no issue, go with the quadcam cobra engine and put a blower on it. then prance around the SOHC guys like they owe you something. thats what id do...

but then again, i see the high cost eliminating the cobra engine as a possibility altogether. it might not be expensive to do that for you, but when you compare it to the other things you could get for as much money as youd dump in it, its just silly.

if you do it, do it for the uniqueness, not the power.

hey that is a great idea!! LOL. but although i have come into some cash recently,

I AM NOT MADE OF MONEY!! i guess i could put a blower on it, ...........EVENTUALLY.
i can afford the cobra motor or the supercharger, just not the cobra motor and the supercharger.

but yeah, i think i will try this project out, just to be unique.

any advice from anyone?

thanx guyz
