The n/a cobras have the teskid aluminum block which isn't to bad better the the mach one's wep windsor block. It all depends on what kinda of build ur trying to do I would say go with an iron block if ur doing a boost or juice

Well I have read conflicting info on the iron to alum blocks first I read the teskid blocks were the stronger of the 2 then read in this forum that the iron was stronger. I would really research the issue. And also between the iron Romeo and windsors I read that the Windsor has the upper hand in strength but after reading a few posts here I again got conflicting information. So I guess what I am saying is I am no help at all

Re: 4.6 aluminum block

any block will be just fine for what your trying to do im assumeing...what kind of power are you trying to make? and dont ask any people at american muscle because honestly they just get paid to answer the phone and look at prices on a computer lol..

im a dealer for alot of companies and can shoot you a good price on a shortblock/longblock..whatever you are looking for..

Hahaha, butt heads we do.

Although, like it says above any block will be perfect. Just be sure to build the internals how you need it built.
