Thanks guy.

Yeas, it has a DJM 4/5 drop. 4 in front, 5 in rear.
However, i didn't like how level it sat (probably because i have a lightweight truck, so the front doesn't come down moar), so i installed a lift shackle to raise the rear ~1inch or so. Gives a nice little rake.

A Cobra 4.6, DOHC, SWEET !
How did you score that ?
Also, how are the Traction Bars making out, I always thought the Heims wear too fast.

Well, sold the engine, made $400, so i bought stuff for the head work on the 2.3t.

Got bigger valves and some other stuff. Started to grind away at the combustion chambers to lower the compression. Going to port and polish too. Need to order more carbide bits to get everything done. Just used what i had lying around.

My work station. Nice little set up to hold the head:
