The Cobra's had the GT40 iron heads. The GT40X is an aftermarket Ford Racing that is way better than the iron GT40's.

Yes they will work on your 93 GT, but if you don't add a decent intake, full exhaust, etc. your waisting your time.

Cool

To add what has already been stated, your cam will still be holding you back big time, the Cobras had more upgrades than just the GT40 heads.

I disagree here. While a stock cam leaves power on the table, it doesn't choke these motors a whole lot. Intake is a must aswell as headers. But cam can stay in and still make decent power

I was thinking bout throwing a e303 cam if compatible. Bbk long tubes, 2.5 ex off road mid flowmaster 44s, 70mm TB cold air intake. These are all upgrades To be done over the winter but the heads are my direction with the correct cam. Any suggestions

agreed.

even tho i am guilty of using the e cam myself, when i get a chance to do a cam to my new car i will either keep the stock cam and add some 1.7rr or i will be going with a comp cam extreme energy cam or the standard tfs1 cam. everyone uses the trick flow stage 1 and ive seen the xe cam deliver in a procharged 347 so i think they are worth looking into.

if you ae looking at buying new or used heads for your car, those are better that what you have, but money best spent would be for a head better than that, they are slightly better than what you have.

And when you lose control you reap the harvest you have sown!

I just need to know what will all work out ; upper and lower cobra intake ,gt40x heads.... Do I need to put a 65-70m tb and 24lb injectors ? I have the money from my other Stang I sold. Can some one give me a list of what all I need to buy to make this work. My goal is to make it 275-300hp and better than the cobra 5.0l. Note I have a 5.0 high output right now

+1. Price out the GT40s vs a set of AFRs or Trick Flows, then look at the power outputs. Once I saw the price on the FRPP heads vs the TFs, I lost any understanding as to why anyone would buy the former.

Function > Form, always

Then you're going to go slower with the same money spent, than if you went aftermarket.

+2, especially with today's cam technology. Light years ahead of the letter cams!

Ford performance- they are aftermarket parts. The upper and lower intake cobra allows more and better flow than the factory on cobras. And the gt40 x twisted swirl heads are 2x better than your factory cast ir

*cast iron heads. With alum it's much lighter and better performance. Having trick flow and all them other upper/lower intakes take away from the original look. Yet I've heard many great things about them that's not the direction. I want my car to sound great and have the torq and hp to back it up. In no ways this car is getting dragged or raced. The car has 45,000 org mines and yes I mean org. This car was owned by a collector who drove it around about 2,000 miles a year and sat in a garage for the past 5. South Carolina car. This car will be one you see on barrett jackson or mecum someday. I'm 22 I own 2 classics and an up and coming. If you get my drift I want to stay as org as I can with aftermarket/ not any of this over powered modified counterparts. All I wanted to know is if anyone has done this form of job and what all they had to do. Before I spend 3,000.00 on everything (intake,heads,headers,tb,injectors,maf,rr,cams,lif ters,plugs,wires,
Distrib and my time) has any one done this or know of it being done. A list of everything that is compatable to make this work
