You might be sorry.....The 96-98 engines are some of the weakest and least desirable. You might want to talk to the mod motor guys and let them help you choose a more desirable year.

No one says they are not good engines, just that they are low on power and it takes a considerable amount of mods to get much out of them.

Re: Gonna sell the 5.0

I royaly miss my 98 cobra. Was a beautiful car and the engine was a whole different world compared to the 2 valve. Only downfall I would give it is an extremely tight engine space. They really packed that 4v in there. One of the best sounding engine ford has produced imho.
