    Cobra 427 Build

    It still needs a fair bit of work TJ

    Cobra 427 Build

    While Chris was over having a look and dropping my Rad off, we had a look at the rear section of the exhaust, and it looks like the cherry bomb centre section and the rear silencer/tailpipe section are going to fit pretty well without much alteration, which is a great result. The cherry bomb section looks like a nice fit from the gearbox through to the front of the diff The rear section will then run under the centre section of the diff between the wishbones (inside the arcs of movement) and then kick out to the side of the car under the boot and the tailpipe looks about the right position hanging out of the back Exciting!

    Today my nice new custom fabricated radiator arrived. Many thanks to @CL290005 for organising and ordering this from the same company that made his C Type rad. We worked on the design between us, well I said to Chris it needs to go there and he did the rest It is certainly a big piece of kit and I am sure it will sufficiently cool the engine no problem. 560mm wide x 448mm high x 74mm thick 3 core. The Kenlowe fan I picked up a couple of weeks ago looks a good fit as well, it needs some mounting brackets making up but that looks pretty straight forward

    I have now got the chassis up on ramps so I can lay underneath to start looking at the exhaust as I will need some bits to start mocking up, then while I wait for them to arrive I can drop back on the fuel system. So I have ordered a couple of bends to connect to the header which will get me to a horizontal position under the car, and I have also ordered an X pipe

    When you did your crossover pipe, what style did you do? H or X?

    That's totally different @Geoffrey (Buttercup) - North Yorkshire AO The two sidepipes on the Westfield are totally separate and not joined by an H or X pipe. The article link posted by TJ above explains it

    Thanks Funnily enough I was discussing that very point with @CL290005 this morning. I am not sure it is necessary really and I like trying to keep things simple. So at present the answer is no unless someone can educate me on the benefits (assuming there are some?)

    Cobra 427 Build

    I have been procrastinating over the exhaust system for a good couple of months now. I spent a fair bit of time looking at some Cobra cars at Autosport International looking especially at exhaust systems, and I finally made my mind up. Since early December I have been keeping my eye on a used exhaust system on EBay that I thought might be worth a punt. It would need some alteration work, but at the right money it could turn out as a bargain and good solution. So after Autosport I decided to take the punt after a bit of negotiation on the price. Here it is now safely in my possession It has come off a TVR Cerbera. Unwrapped for a quick initial inspection and it looks to be in pretty good order. It will need alteration and the front pipes will need lopping off just in front of the joint bracket. The appeal was that it will be an underslung system which is the original AC Cobra design as well as being a bit more civilised when driving but hopefully still a great sound from what is a performance V8 exhaust system, and I do like those 3" diameter polished tailpipes Once the front of the fuel system is finalised this will be next on the radar

    I started having a look at the fuel injection system tonight, no photos though to keep you all in suspense I was more interested in throttle cable routing and bracket arrangements really. Anyone able to recommend a decent throttle cable supplier? @AdamR maybe?
