Re: questions king cobra

I've seen a few 351c out there in a Mustang II. Some modification might be in order I have been told, especially if you go bigger. The big oil crunch was going on at the time these cars were coming off the lots, so they weren't made to hold bigger engines. I personally want to go with one of those new Boss 302 blocks and build it up in my Mustang II. Good luck, and FYI I just purchased 5 of those NOS King Cobra center caps for my 76. $100 for each one, all in the original Ford box. - Off of Ebay. - You might check and regularly for them, that's what I did.

Re: questions king cobra

That little chassis would be awesome with a 500hp turbo or supercharger setup on the 302 or 5.0L. Easier and cheaper than a swap in the long run. Of course, you'll have to do a bunch of other mods to handle the power in any case. Light is fast.

Just a thought...

Re: questions king cobra

thanks you guys i am looking at a 5.0 from a 1992 Ford Thunderbird with the automatic tranny now i am just wondering how much wiring i'll have to do but all of this is new and really cool, i found some center caps on ebay and i think i am going to get them and have them redone because they are kind of beat up a little bit but good for the most part
