Exclamation 30 Days - No Posts?

Quote:
There have been no posts in the last 30 days in this forum.
No posts in the 5.0 Forum?!

Let's see...what can I post...hmmm.

I have a 5.0 that just turned 35,000mi. It is my second 5.0 Cobra...I had a 94 before this one. I've enjoyed them both. Both of my 5.0's are stock, which is fine by me.

Okay...someone else post something!

Well, I'll have a few posts if I ever get my motor back from the engine builder. It's frustrating as hell waiting on someone else to get their butt in gear.


Hmmm, maybe I should have asked a bunch of questions and built the motor myself.


I'm also helping a friend get his SC '94 Cobra track ready. I don't know the first thing about superchargers so I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions when we finally get going on that. I know it has a Vortech and also some kind of boost/spark advance knob under the dash. We ordered a huge Griffith radiator with a 1 1/2 quart oil cooler built in. I know SC engines create a lot more heat so we figured we should start there. We are looking to make around 330-340 rwhp so we may have to go to a different pulley. I guess we won't know until we weigh the car and get it on a dyno.

Wow! But that's just "mid-life" for the 5.0's, isn't it? Don't they go an easy 200,000mi w/ some care and minimal abuse?

What I wonder is how many miles the DOHC motors will go under simular conditions. I've read about one or two 32 valvers hitting 100,000mi...but don't know how they made out after that.

How many miles did it have when you bought it? And when did you get it? I think you got your 94 about the same time I got my 94...

Hitting 330 rwhp should be no problem at all. With only basic mods (full exhaust and a power pipe) I was seeing 350 rwhp at 10# of boost. I'm sure with a good tune I would have had 375-380.

Should be mid-life. I am sure the engine is going to out live my T5.

That's what I am kinda worried about. I think it might have too much horsepower. (Did I just say that?!) Because of the AI power to weight ratio, I have to keep it in a certain range. We may have to go to a different pulley.

I bought my 94 in January 2002 and it had 60,770 miles on it when I bought it. I put 6,000 miles on it in a year.

Talking My 5.0 :) '94 GT

Howdy!

Unlike you guys, Im not in the position to have a Cobra right now... I will ONE DAY! BUT...Here's my baby....I myself will be turning over 110 K in another 80 miles in my '94 GT....this week, I"M SURE!

This is my daily driver.....shes been great, unfortunately now, I'm needing some things done to it...that are not for fun. Hopefully in the next couple of months, I'll be able to do them!
My therapy is cleaning it....Specially the engine, the favorite part of my car, next to my side exaust! And I drive it w/ pride!

I think I'm blind now.

Nice job on that engine.
