I just saw this video and instantly had to share it. The fact that this survived getting scrapped is AMAZING.

For those just reading:
Build date of the engine is 1999, turbo kit date is 1998. It is a Teksid C port engine, with a custom cobra intake fitted with an air to water intercooler.

Only thing I can imagine this engine was possibly designed for is either the 00 Cobra R or was an idea for the Super Stallion. Either way I think its amazing piece of history.
Super stallion was its own thing, unless he's suggesting a new edge followup, but this is really a lot less exotic that the super stallion engine. If I were to make an uneducated guess it was possibly designed as a feasibility study for what became the 03-04 Cobra before going with the Eaton roots blower instead.
Someone on tccoa has that intake; it's part of their current build. Pretty sure it's na now.
Wasn't it Dugan? Can't remember his first name.

That engine is also in the book, 'making 4.6 power on the dyno', or something like that, I bought this picture book from amazon a few years ago, and it's got every combo you can imagine, compared on a test stand and dyno. Intakes, cams, power adders.
The throttle body plenum only adds 3hp if you're already making 400, lol.
But do You know the difference? :) Which one does a waterwheel fall under? :zdevil:
