The blower should be fine. The oil has to go through the oil filter and then through the screen in the nozzle before it gets into the blower. He has broken pistons and a possible rod knock. Clean the S/C inside and out with brake clean the flush some oil into the oil inlet and blowout the oil spray nozzle with air and brake clean look for metal shavings in the nozzle

I see that you still have the IMRC plates. When I had my 97 Cobra I went thru and bought the IMRC eliminators plates and ended up porting them out quite a bit. They came from Ford Racing and Im not sure if they still offer them but if you can track down a set with that blower setup you would be happy with the results. I had every bolt on known to man on that car and could tell a difference...I was always too chicken to throw a blower on her because of the bottom end

I am pretty sure Ford Racing does not make these any more. When I had my '97, I was considering these as well. If you do decide to go that route Mikey, you will have to find them used. Shane97Cobra found me a couple sets for sale on some of the various mustang boards.

Thats kinda what I figured Im sure if you had your heart set on it and couldnt track down a set you could have a shop somewhere fabricate something for you.

Glad you did the compression test. I figured number 7 & 8 went. These are usually the two leanest ones. I wouldn't try to pull anything else off the motor in the car. Time to pull it or drop it out he bottom.

As of right now it is 75% sure that it's just a blown head gasket.

Stay tuned.

It's rare to see a blown head gasket on these cars. They are MLS gaskets, other parts give out first on stock SB's.
