Can't wait to see the pictures Bob!!
Now I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I can keep, but if I spin and begin to slide, please dear Lord, protect my hide.

I picked up this little addition last night.  Looks very raw, going to need a lot of trimming and fitting to get it right.   mr bruce leave a lot of extra material at the edges so it can be fitted to various shapes and sized of bodies.

Then I have to figure out how to fabricate hinges, latches, tie downs, etc.  Going to be an interesting project add-on.

Awesome, I bet there is some hardware out there that would look/function right. Maybe from the MG, Triumph parts places. I might have a few ideas how you could do part of it with some C2 corvette (boo, hiss) parts used to attach the removable hard tops.

Holy cow!! With that engine you better be careful when you start it so you don't flip the car over! Congratulations. Post pics when you get it.

Nice recipe! Virtually identical to my motor except for the carb and intake. Everyone speaks highly of Keith's work.
Do you have port matched exhaust flanges for your AFR 205's?

Jason hasn't made the headers yet. I'm thinking of ordering the flanges and matching them when I get the engine, then sending them to Jason.  Any recommendations for a source?

Nice engine!!!  You have been waiting along time to get it on order.  Can't go wrong with a Craft Performance engine.

Bobby, you won't have to port match these:
Stahl Flanges for AFR P/N 134082628

[ftphttp://www.stahlheaders.com/flanges_main.htm][/ftp]

They matchup very nicely to the AFR 205's.  What I did was to have them shipped directly to Jason before he started on my headers.

So last Tuesday, October 25th I get an email from Lance at Craft Performance Engines:

"Hey man,
Give me a call when you have a free chance.  Got your engine dyno tested today, think you will be very pleased with results. "


what?!  Its been less than three weeks!  I had to read it about three times, then gave him a call.   The engine was ready!  It was a perfect morning, cool and low humidity, and they broke it in on the dyno for four hours.   Then he told me the best numbers: 

599.6 Hp @ 5900 rpm / 600.5 lb-ft Tq @ 4300 rpm!

And those are true, uncorrected number thanks to the perfect weather conditions.  Here is the video of the dyno pull:



WOW - Sounds like the beginning of the Daytona 500!  Oh man, are my neighbors gonna love me...




So Lance was bringing  three engines to Texas in a few days, so we arranged to meet in Corsicana, about 60 miles south of Dallas, which was on his route to Houston.   I backed my truck up to his truck tailgate and slid it on over.   I also picked up a new QuickTime bell housing, Ram steel flywheel, Ram clutch and pressure plate, Ford Motorsports mini-starter and the included case of Joe Gibbs Racing motor oil.



I called my dad and let him know I was going to swing by his ranch in Navarro county on my way home to pick up his engine joist, I might be needing it for a few weeks ;)   

When I got home I was like a little kid under the Christmas tree, I didn't want to do anything but rip open my shiny new present!  ...well, a very EXPENSIVE present I bought my myself, but still, I couldn't wait ;)



Our cobra now has a heartbeat! Tucked away safely in the garage, i've ordered ARP bolts for everything, Energy Suspension engine and trans mounts, and hopefully this weekend I can do an initial test fit, if I can get some buddies over to help me take the body back off the chassis.

Bob,
Your engine sounds as good as it looks. Very impressive torque and  hp curves. Time to get the dial gauge out to check the alighment of that QuickTime bellhousing to the crank/flywheel. I had to use .014" offset dowel pins to get alignment within the .005" Tremec specification. The dowel pins I used were manufactured by RobbMc Performance Products. They worked well and I was able to get alignment within .001".
Enjoy.

Thanks, Russ - Craft Performance checked the bellhousing alignment for me and it was within specs.

Matt, FYI - I ended up ordering header flanges from www.StainlessHeaders.com

http://www.racemufflers.com/Ford-AFR-Header-Flange-Mild-Steel-p/rm3535a-hfms.htm

The price just couldn't be beat for 3/8" laser cut cold rolled steel.   The Stahl price is almost double if you upgrade from 5/16" to 3/8".    I had to call them to order, but he was very helpful and confirmed I was using 3" center holes, so they are deleting the 2" holes. More material and space to weld onto.

Wow! Those are impressive numbers and a great motor! Congrats
Curious why you want 3/8" flanges rather than 5/16"?   I've never heard of flange failure and although it's only an extra 1/16", it certainly won't help the tight clearance between #8 header tube and the foot box.
