2010 Cobra Jet
In addition and for the second year running, outgoing Ford Racing main man Brian Wolfe unveiled a Cobra Jet Mustang at SEMA. Actually there are two Cobra Jets for 2010: the standard issue, with the familiar iron 5.4 block, and a Super Cobra Jet with an aluminum block. Both engines boast higher lift cams and increased compression, but the SCJ also gains a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger. Performance is gauged by the standard 8.5-second-legal rollcage; the cars are legal for NHRA Super Stock A/B and A/B Automatic. Other improvements are an aluminum tank and fan-cooling for the heat exchanger. Best of all, the parts are available from Ford Racing to roll your own CJ-or if you're like Brian, "I got to do a big flaming burnout in it!" He's still crazy for it.
