You've been hearing wrong , all the Lincoln Teksid block/rotating assemblies are the same . The Cobra Teksid rotating assembly is stronger as it uses a forged steel crank and the slightly beefier Windsor rods . The early iron block 2v's in the Town Car/T-Bird/Cougar were weaker in the main bearing caps , 2 bolt vs 4 bolt . The early WAP aluminum block that replaced the Teksid in the 2001 Cobra was considered weaker due to a lower grade alloy used in the casting . This is why the supercharged 2003-4 Cobra's used the Romeo iron block from the GT .
I've had a 290 hp 96 MarkVIII LSC since it was 6 months old , very strong running car , far superior engine to the 2v .
