Ford A-351 Windsor V8
balanced, blueprinted and dyno-tested

Ford SVO build engine. One of the motorheads at Ford SVO advised, “If I had a Cobra, I would use an A-351 Windsor because it has the hottest roller cam with the exhaust ‘pop’ you want a Cobra to possess.”

  • GT40 aluminum heads
  • 750 cfm Holley 4-bbl carburetor
  • Edelbrock ‘Torker II’ intake
  • Griffin 600 hp radiator
  • K&N air cleaner
  • roller cam
  • MSD ignition ensemble
  • Mallory solid-state distributor

When was the last time you encountered a Cobra engine with a 4 deep K&N air cleaner? This was effected by exchanging the Edelbrock ‘Air Gap’ manifold for a lower-profile Torker II. This modification yields a flat torque curve that provides breathtaking right-off–idle power and throttle response.

Chassis dyno yielded 344 rear wheel horsepower which factors 430 flywheel horsepower—not bad for a Windsor on a 2,350 lb. [1,066 kilogram] drivin’ machine.

That’s a crotch-rocket motorcycle power-to-weight ratio! Real-world experience.

Performance: you can expect to turn high 10’s to low 11’s at 135 mph in the quarter mile.
