Well Fabian brought us his 1999 Cobra that has been sitting for a while due to an unfortunate introduction of water to the cylinders sent his stock engine packing... He purchased a built short block and had some issues getting it to fire. We got her here at RP and we'll be getting her back on the road asap for him!

Here are some pics of the teardown...





Unfortunately the Trans/O2 harness was smashed in between the engine and trans during install...



Flattened like a pancake...

Huntsman Spider Love...



Missing water jacket plug in his newly purchased short block...



All the marked valves are visibly bent having made contact with the pistons due to the engine being incorrectly timed...



See those Valve "Reliefs" in the pistons yeah those are not supposed to be there... LOL!

Not something you look forward to seeing in your cylinders... The rust sitting on the piston crown was flaking off the cylinder wall with a finger nail...

Block was ruined so we got a new one for the rebuild and the machine shop was slammed so we're back hustling to get this badboy running again by Monday!







16 of the 32 Valves were bent in Fabian's cylinder heads so we went ahead and upgraded to Stainless Ferrea valves and bronze guides while we had the chance.

Fabian's Cobra is all set and back on the road... He'll be bringing her back to RP soon to address some other issues due to it's 2 year long hiatus as well as a Dyno tune.
