i just got back with my teksid motor, full motor oilpan to intake, except upper plenum and tb, even has ac compressor and pwr steering pump, if i get cams and get the heads on it redone will they be okay with supercharger/nitrous/turbo, depending on what i go with? or do i need to try to find the c heads? and what all do they come on? and where is a good place to find a 03/04 cobra rotating assy? sorry for all the questions, i just decided today ima go with the 4v, figured itd be a better starting point. :headbang:

mmr was having a sell on rotating assemblies over the summer may give them a call and see if they still having the sell i bought mine from them in may and spent 900 on it minus the crank. i think if u buy a crank from them in a kit its like around $800 give or take. the teskid block didnt come in the 03/04s so you already have a forged crank. but the pistons and rods are the weak point in this engine i have been told by a couple of relieable friends to just spend the money and get the forged internals instead of tryin to chance it on the stockers. o yea try dss racing they have a decent setup for a decent price ive heard good things about them. good luck man

yeah, ive got the teksid, got it tore down to short block today, post pics later, im prolly gonna go with a 5.1 stroker rotating assy, and then put stage 3-4 blower cams in her, and shoot her with a 200 shot till i can get a supercharger:banana:

I got the motor and the guy said it had a dropped valve, and was ticking on the top end, I went home pulled the valve covers and one of the rocker arms came out from under the cam, so that's good cause I have no dropped valve! And then I ended the night with pulling one head off which was a pita lol. After work the other heads comin off and the oil pan.

Ok I you plan on making any serious power you might as well order a forged Kellogg crank unless you can find a 96-98 cobra crank. The mark 8 cranks are cast not forged.

Hell yeah, Ima jump on that then
I am just completing a teksid 2v build right now as we speak. My question is do you have a local reputable machine shop that can build a motor like this for a mustang wether it be a 2v or 4v. Here is a list of the items I purchased not including any machine work. I had a local engine builder that builds a lot of race engine do all the machine work and blue printing. Just food for thought.

Glad you got started on your swap. :banana: I was wondering how soon. Are you going to keep your TR3650 or do you plan to upgrade down the road?

Sorry man! I don't know why I thought you had a 2002. :( I know it's in you member name, just kept thinking you had an 02.

That's sucks, but at least you'll be getting an upgrade. Glad you got your project started. :good:
