Ford Manufactured Cobra 4 Valve Engine with Fuel Injection and Factory Wiring with Diagnostics Capabilities

The owner was looking to build a Shelby Cobra that the engine and drive train would have easy operation starting and running characteristic, and the high amount of horse power that can be associated with a newer style fuel injected 4 valve engine. It would be very driver friendly, and have good low end torque, easy drive-ability, reliable, and could be easily diagnosed should any problems occur.

Test Drive-

Chad drove the vehicle for several miles around a park setting and on a 2 lane road. The car steers easily and smoothly, and is nice and quick at responding well. The engine fires up immediately and runs up around 1000 and when warms up goes down to a normal idle, and certainly has all the nice running benefits of a modern fuel injected engine. The car accelerates and decelerates very smoothly. The clutch operation seems to work smoothly, and the brakes stop easily, and upon braking there is no pulling to the left or right, and without any pulsation. Easily shifts in and out of all 5 gears, and in reverse. The car drives very smoothly and has a good solid feel.
