Hey everyone. New here. Introduced myself and a few of you wanted to see the build. We are around 98% complete with this project. Hope to start it in a few weeks.

This is an older photo. Taken in the build phase.

The next few are of the engine. I will try to get some updated photos this weekend. It looks killer in the car.

The car is a 95 Cobra stock suspension car. We are setting it up to run OTTA (local races) and hopefully hit the drag radial scene. It's got all the goodies. Twin injector Big Stuff 3, Racepak, AMS 1000, twin chutes, fire system, etc. Running a Glide and a Neal Chance converter.

Got to give Don Bailey all the props for helping me pick the right parts and getting this project going. Couldn't have done it without him.

No idea yet. We haven't fired it. Hopefully in a few weeks. In reality, I don't think we can dyno this car. It should make around 2500 - 2700 HP.

In OTTA they are running 4.80's consistently to win. There are some capable of running 4.60's. But it only happens in the right conditions.

For Drag Radial, we will have to run 4.60's to be competitive. The Drag Radial guys will probably be going 4.50's before year's end.

Thanks guys. We hope to do well with it. We were running 4.90's at 155ish with the SBF (364ci). It had TFS-R's and a Billet 106 on it. We were just starting to figure that thing out when we decided to do this. We figured either step up and compete or go golfing. And I hate golf. LOL.

Are you running shaft rockers? Just wondered, as it looks like those are the short Moroso valve covers. I wasn't sure if they would clear the shaft setups. Cool looking engine for sure.

I have BIG springs. And the lower left corners of the inside cover needed to be clearanced. The exhaust spring retainer was hitting a little. Just FYI.
