Yeh a nice 392 is awsome but i personally dont want more than 500hp engine im my cars and thats getting abit much on the street. Something between 450-500 is sweet.

Good induction is good set of heads eg AFR 165cc for standard 5.0L with a trickflow or edelbrock intake injectors tb exhaust and tune will definatly get the car going, and then the bug bites and you go 347 or bigger hahaha. It's a never needing story with power. You just ant more and more.

Some days i get in mine and it feels like a weapon and too much for me then some days i hang for more and leave nice tidy marks for 80meters up the street :D and thats with a 400hp engine


I didn't mention power. The point is a 392 or 408 or 418 will do it easy and make stupid amounts of torque and a 351 ain't to shabby either.
The X head 392 Ford crate engine makes around 450hp(they say 430 in the catalog) The Z head 392 makes 535hp(they say 475 in the catalog).

AFR 165cc heads are already on the list, they should have been on the car now but the money had to go else were.
Going to stick with the cobra manifold untill it cant flow no more (upper cut open and ported) then was thinking a holley intake set up.
Exhaust is already done
24 lb injectors big enough for 347?
The 75mm TB might be the right size for a 347 hey XR9UTE :D
Which stoker kits are now made in china?


I'd use AFR 185's on a 347 but the 165's will certainly go with the cobra intake. The 75 should be right with that intake even when it's hogged out. :wink:
Use an RPMII instead of the holley just to save the hassel of swapping sides.

How about a trickfow trackheat or a R seies which is a tad shorter runner and bigger cross section with an extra 30cfm flow. Apparently bigger cross section means more torque.

From what i can find the max the cobra manifold is going to flow to is around 400hp at the motor, which is around 220rwkw i think.
If i was going down the rebuilt 306ci and blower path is the cobra's peak power go to be a draw back?
Or once it's blown that figure doesn't matter?

Trackheat ain't much chop...it's just a shorter runner version of the streetheat. The R-series is good but the bigger cross section runner is only good for torque if the engine can use it. Otherwise is actually hurts torque due to poor velocity.

The Cobra will hold back outright flow at the peak with a blower but it will still be very good and will help torque off idle. I wouldn't change it unless you have bigger heads/cam and something like a T-trim or larger blower.
