But wait SoCal..a cobra or Mach 1 doesn't have forged internals? Please let me know cause that will really help narrow my decision down if it comes down to choosing which engine.
The 96-01 Cobras and 03-04 MAch 1 have the same rods and same piston material as the 2Vs. The cranks are forged and thats it.
03-04 Cobras have a fully forged bottom end.
Acceptable limits of a non-forged 4V is 450whp (2V is 400whp). 03-04 Cobras are probably 600-650whp (might be more, I'm not sure).
