Thumbs up 4.6 Cobra Top end deal??

Guys,

If I want to do a top end Cobra 32V conversion, what do I have to do to a Lincoln block to make this work? 1998 top end with only 6K miles!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2488026010

Seems like the price is way too cheap to not buy! Aren't heads about $1k apiece?

Thanks guys....

Steve

Hello
Nothing need to be done to the block at all cobra heads are the same thing as mark heads except with different cams. The intake will bolt right up but the sensors are probably different I don't know so they would probably need a rewire. I know on a 95 mark and a 95 tbird you only need to lengthen one sensor. The problem you will have is in 96 everything went to OBD-II so it gets a little more complicated in terms of wiring. HOpe that helps.

I have one piece of advise.

Talk to Lonnie Doll. His name on the boards is Lonnie. If there's anybody that knows that swap (and the BS associated with it in California) it's him.
