Engine is coming out of the Cobra...and the Mach 1.

The Mach engine is going in the Cobra and Ill fix the Cobra engine this winter.

Reasoning? Simple, and I owe it to my buddy Chris for knocking some sense into me.
Mach engine has 100 miles on it, and its ready for anything I throw at it:
9.7 Compression
Ported Heads, GT Cams, Livernois Valve Springs.
H-Beams
Cobra Crank
Melling Oil Pump

The Mach will be sold as a roller or with a stock Mach engine (when I repair the OTHER one I have on the stand. :biggthump :biggthump :biggthump :burnout:

Still gonna do the E-85 conversion on this one, just need to save up for the Fuel system parts.
Definitely gonna benefit the setup with 9.7 compression.
Someone told me KB is coming out with a 3.8L soon.
Hmmmmm

That plan makes pretty good sense. Switch the IRS out while you're at it.

No way! I can honestly say Im not gonna take this car to the track on a regular basis, if at all.

If you drove this car, you would understand why the IRS is staying.

It rides like a Cadillac on rails. :clap:

So no more almighty Cobra engine, but a better one...I am so jealous. You know, you can only hook up about another 50RWHP with those Nitto's until 70-80MPH. You'll need the mushy ones like BFG and MT.
Am I medling? Ha Ha Ha...not me. Sounds good Zach, love the updates.

Do you know about r&r with a Mcleod clutch? I know you have to be very carefull to put it back the same way...just a little warning.

Thanks for the tip. My buddy will help me with the clutch, since I have very little experience installing them.

How much are you going to sell the Mach 1 roller for ?
I was planning on fixing a 48k 4V I have on the stand and sell it running, but if you showed up with 5800 you could have the roller.
