    Hey guys, sorry for the delay. I kind of forgot about this thread until StrayBullitt sent me a message. Its a built stock iron romeo block. 97 Cobra crank, forged pistons & rods, trick flow small chamber heads, custom grind cams (somewhat similar to Comp 278 cams) trick flow track heat manifold with a 75mm accufab TB, 02 GT MAF, kooks 3/4 length headers, off road down tubes with a magnaflow tru-x muffler. Supporting fuel & cooling system obviously, bolted to a T45 with a ford racing steel flywheel and ford racing king cobra clutch kit. Running the stock Super Coupe master cylinder and a CNC universal pull type slave cylinder. Rear is a 3.73 trac lok. It made 404hp on 100 octane race fuel. I stuck with the 2V because all the people that think you cant make power with it. You can if you build it right. Its an epic slap in the face to LS guys when they get beat by a 2V Thunderbird lol.
