Heres some pics of my 4.6 Explorer block, supposed to be the same as the Cobra block. It might weight 80-85# . The main caps are steel, with 4 bolts through the top and two through the sides. I got it when the getting was good :smile: Before Ford increased the price to over $1500. http://community.webshots.com/album/22409300tBfaJMaulF

The Explorer had 2v heads, didn't it? I guess they were the Truck heads? How interchangeable is all this stuff?

None of my business, but why would you have the motor in your brand new truck apart?

All I bought was the 02 Explorer block. They were available from Ford starting in late 2000. I caught wind of them early this year after their true identity (Cobra Block) was discovered. I got it for $370 or so. When I ordered it from a local dealer, they were on national back-order, but a parts manager of a local Ford dealership found one of five left in a warehouse, in Texas I believe. Within another hour, they were gone.

I bought it to throw together a Mod engine for my 1987 LX to run in Mod Motor class next year. But the Fun Ford rules have changed and the the older bodies will not be allowed.

Fascinating. Wonder why the Exploder rates an Aluminum block but a 2v Mustang doesn't? That would be an easy 50 pounds off the front end.
