No I haven't gotten rid of it. I just can't drive it. Ford is trying to talk me into a mustang lol. I honestly just want my car fixed though.

Well, if it's the 5.0...... BUT they should fix your ****! I think they should just make it easy on themselves and throw in a Cosworth shortblock!! Is Ford willing to fix it for you?

Yea that's the block I want... Well that or the revworks Stg 1. I think cod worth is almost 5k and the revworks is 3.5k. Both should hold up well.

If you want a cheaper alternative, Top Speed in GA sells a brand new shortblock with fully forged internals. Check it out at:

Here is another one that I like:

I'd imagine they will rebuild it. However I do not want the stock pistons and rings as they apparently aren't working out. Probably has to do with the tune the former owner was running. I liked the awd tuning site, stg3 oh yea. **** that and a good tmic and a nice 3071 and id be happy

Yeah, the Cossie is DEFINATELY the top dog. They make F-1 motors upon many other top level motorsport motors. If I had unlimited fundage, Cosworth longblock and their dry sump oil system along with a rotated GT-35R!

Equal length sounds pretty sick but you lose most of the suby rumble but gives more power.
