O.K., I don't mean to be stupid, but I've been meaning to ask - what, exactly, is a Teksid block or engine? Is it a 4.6 liter V-8?

  • The block is named Teksid for its manufacturer and was cast was in Italy from 1993 to 1999 by Teksid, a supplier to Ferrari and other manufacturers
  • The block is the basis of a 4.6L V8 engine built for Ford and was used in the ‘96-‘98 Cobra and was also used in the ‘93-‘98 Lincoln Mark 8
  • The block is cast in SAE 319 modified alloy aluminum before it is heat treated and aged to achieve the desired characteristics
  • The block part number is F6LZ-6010-AB
  • The block weighs 85.40 lbs
  • The Teksid block is the strongest production aluminum case available.
In 1999, Ford changed the main cap detail, eliminating the jackscrews that preloaded the side of the main cap. They also changed the width of the cap, and switched to a different side bolt with a higher torque value.
The diameter of the hole for the knock sensor was also changed from M8x1.25 to M12x1.50. We simply drill and tap these holes if we are using the ’99-up block in an earlier chassis. The part number for the ‘99 block is XR3Z-6010-CA.

Sean Hyland Motorsport (SHM) has successfully used the ‘96-‘98 Cobra aluminum Teksid block as a basis for drag-race engines of up to 1,500 hp

Damnit nick... why you post this **** now. That's so very tempting but I need a New Torque Converter. I might be buying one of these bad boys from you when I get home depending on some things.

usually when some one sells a teksid block, its usually just the bare block with the main caps and possibly the rear seal plate....the hollow set-screws and sidebolts should be verified that they are included, seeing as how then are practically unobtainable

  • The Teksid block is the strongest production aluminum case available.

while this is no longer true, it doesnt affect anything, as it will be able to easily take 1000+ HP when properly prepped....so it is still useful for 99.999999999% of all modular motor build-ups

Did the knock sensor bolt hole sizes change over the years? I vaguely remember reading something about the Gen II (and maybe the 96's also) knock sensors being different from the earlier ones with a larger hole in the block for them.

But I'm not sure.

i want to know what parts can be used?????

C'mon now, to ship an entire engine would cost near $400 alone.

This is a bare aluminum block that is highly desirable, nothing more.
can the guts from a 95 npi be used ???:confused:

I suppose you could but why would you want to. That would be like putting a Geo Metro motor into the body of a Ferrari.

what's with the retarded questions?? These blocks are used for major build ups.. Either serious N/A setups like Guitar Maestro is making or Forced Induction setups like I'll be doing. I won't stop till my bird is putting down 600RWHP

How much power can a stock block hold???

1500RWHP has been done.

4 Teksid sold

Got one Teksid left that you can do standard parts, but IMHO it should be honed 0.005" over (thats what I would do for any serious motor anyway)

Also have a 5000 mile WAP aluminum block that will easily do standard parts and still has the like new main bearings in it. Same price for this one, $400 shipped.
