Figured out my cobra mystery

Alled the guy who owned it before the person I bought it from and he said it is a cobra motor just not the intake he had a trick flow intake and sold his cobra one well then when he decided to sell he wasn't gonna sell his trick so he found a regular one and put it on.. This means I'm ordering a cobra intake or gt40 hmm haven't decided..

Didn't you just have a post of an intake off of a Bronco that looked like the bottom to a Holley Systemax?

If the Systemax upper would fit on that lower, I would be inclined to use it instead and get the Systemax upper to fit it.
You can port the Cobra intake to closely match the Systemax, but you are looking at a lot more money to buy it and have it ported.


P.S. It being a Cobra motor doesn't really mean much. The differences in those and a regular old 5.0 GT engine were so slight as to be almost negligible. You are looking at 235 HP compared to 215/225 HP, so 10-20 HP difference at best.

Yes true but I like the fact it's a cobra.. The snake has always been my thing.. And yeah I do but idk I kinda like the idea of building her back to a stock cobra .. Already have my eyes on some 93 cobra rims..

Then what will you take for that Bronco intake?
If it's cheap enough, I'll check it out for fitment myself and have it in case my Victor 5.0 doesn't work like I hope it will.
