The 03-04 Terminator block is cast iron. Far stronger than any aluminum block.

This block is known as the WAP block which is short for Windsor Aluminum Plant. JoiOK very cool build btw!!
thank you, exactly what I was trying to say...

I stand corrected. But there have been many arguements about which is stronger, the 93-up aluminum or the 03-04 iron block. I have no clue since I dont have any experience with either one, and I think it really doesn't matter much until you´r getting close to 4 digit hp numbers. But the aluminium block is 30kg lighter.

And talking about weight, rough calculations say that this modular motor/transmission combo is only about 60-70kg heavier than the original. thats pretty good i think.

For the 03-04 terminators they went with a cast iron block, not the aluminum one the previous cobras had. And you'd have to build a nice cowl on the hood to fit a super charger as that bad boy adds some nice height

Edit: just noticed someone beat me to the cast iron punch a few posts up...sorry!

They are both plenty strong but the iron block wins out.

I'm pretty sure it was all understood that this motor would not fit.

probably no one here on turbobricks will reach the point where they'll have to switch from aluminum block to the cast iron block

This is very cool, shouldn't it be moved to the Projects section? Move the battery to the trunk and the weight distribution may be close to stock b230ft.

Yep, moving a 20 pound battery back 10 feet is like moving 200 pounds back 1 foot.

Or get one of those lightweight batteries for the stock location. Another source of unwanted weight distribution is a full windshield wash reservoir.

Default Cobra R wheels

That thing would look sweet with a set of cobra R wheels bit I doubt the would be the right bolt pattern, I got the ones for my mustang widened to fit 335/35 17's that would be just right for that car! Great job!

Sean Hyland says that the Teksid block is good for 1500hp he recomends this block for anythin over 900 hp in his book how to build max performance 4.6 liter Ford engines i say you go for it all you need is a couple of turbo's and your good to go

Keep up the great work on the build. Remember its not a race to build it. So take as much time as need to deliver a quality machine for yourself.

Cool Swap! This should be very nice. Those engines are a tight sqeeze in a mustang. So wide.

Few pics of last days work,


The gear shifter almost fitted in its hole. We had to cut about 1 cm.


Here you can see the edis-8 ignition module and the ecu harness at the inner fender.





We decided to use the Ford engine compartment fuse box, that gives much cleaner look than having a bunch of relays and fuses hanging in the inner fender


This will be clean looking

Nice work you guys! When the turbobricks collective buys the Iceland government. This will become the prototype for all government owned cars. So there will be lots of work for you.
