Go with cobra motor. You will have a pain passing inspection cause the 5.0 didn't use obd2. Which is needed to pass emissions.

That's right I didn't even think about how those 5.0's are obd1 so I'm gona go with the cobra. Will the cobra fit the mounts I have now or will I need special mounts?
Thanks

04 cobra motor is nasty and pretty fast just stock, but only downside is parts for them are more expensive and not was easy to find as compared to the 5.0, it may be hard to pass inspection but parts are a dime a dozen and cheap as s*** and easy to make fast.
