351 Cleveland Cobra Jet Valve Covers

As others have stated or inferred, it really doesn't matter whether your 351C is a 2V, 4V, CJ, HO or Boss unless you are shooting for or desire something rare and even that has qualifiers. ALL 351Cs can be built to perform at the equivalent (or better) level of any of the other 351C engines produced by the factories. It just mean swapping out a few parts and maybe a bit of machining.

Based on your previous posts (you never actually introduced yourself or stated definitely what you REALLY want out of your car), I understand you are essentially looking for a daily driver with a bit of a "wow" factor. You REALLY need to be honest with yourself and decide what you can live with (or not live with) as it relates to your Mustang. Modifying any car usually means compromising, just as the factories do when they build cars for the masses. That is why our cars have so many different options and/or styles. 

If the car is still at the machine shop and you have not yet ordered (or had them order) the parts for the apparent rebuild, you need to STOP and decide what your REALLY want.  Believe me, we here on the Site can help lead you in the "right" direction; you just need to give us something concrete to work with as to your true desires for the Mustang. Many of us have a heck of a lot of experience in making changes for different desired results.


Do the RIGHT thing.

Ok everyone sorry for the long delay in the response. I ended up looking at the #s on the block and they do not match the Vin #. Attached is a picture of my car 1971 Mustang Mach 1, if you zoom in on the picture you can see the Cobra Jet letting on side of hood, so that’s what got the dots all connecting that it did come with car but apparently not. I’m sorry if I didn’t introduce myself but I’m a 35 year old and live in Southeastern South Dakota and have had this car since 2004. I got tranny rebuilt about 4 years ago and lucky if it’s got 500 miles on since then. The motor just got done being rebuilt as a knocking sound all of a sudden started and lost oil pressure. Luckily it was just a broken push rod and landed on the pan under intake so didn’t ruin anything. Ended up finding out it’s a 4V block with 4V heads and rebuilt with roller cam, roller lifters, forged pistons....going to be excited to fire it up here this week or next. Again sorry for not introducing myself, please let me know if you would like any other info. [Image: 78c784c71ecfe311d8607fee58f413d0.jpg]
