69 cobra restomod

Looks like I've been on here since 2014 and never made a single post. I'll just throw up some pictures and let you decide where It's going. I bought it for 700 bucks from a guy in Missouri who was thinking about scrapping it. It's thoroughly rotted

Cut out the floors and added some full length frame rails 2x3 box tube. 20 bucks for 20 ft is pretty damn cheap

351c, speedmaster heads, compcams 292h cam kit, speedmaster itbs, computronix cop distributor, fed-m rebuild kit with flat tops. There's honestly alot there that i can't remember because It's been about 2 years since I've built it. It's going to be running off of a fast xfi sportsman ecu though.

Cleveland is going to be mated to a t56. I picked it up for 300 bucks on CL thinking it was a t5. When i told the guy it was a t56 he said its my lucky day. Score! McLeod clutch and ford racing flywheel as well.

Did some test fitting with the dash, tunnel hump and pedal assembly. The engine is as high up as it can go so the cobra can be dropped with out having to worry about the oil pan scraping or denting. The center portion of the firewall is going to be butted up against the dash. Real tight fit but it'll work. Now finding a heater/ac box that will fit in the passenger compartment is going to be tricky

Re: 69 cobra restomod

Wow! Nice looking project. Why move the engine so far back? Won't that position bugger up the intake airflow to the rear cylinders? That IRS looks like a nice install.

70XL. I wanted a better weight distribution. This mod Plus the battery in the back should help out alot. As far as flow, i have a custom plenum i am building for these turbos. Ebay specials with custom "head hugger" headers i built myself.

Haven't posted in a while. In the process of building a lower plenum for good idle. Each runner will be linked via 3/8 inch aluminum tube.
The plenum will house the map sensor, idle air control valve and later on a provision for brakes. Im running manual brakes as of right now. Im currently working on the lower tract of the plenum, it will drop down about 1 inch into the valley. Not sure how much cubic inches will be in this but I hope it's enough.
