How to Assemble a 03-04 Cobra SC “Terminator” Engine

©2010 By ProWeld Performance Parts

I have taken numerous Phone Calls, E-mails and Written Letters asking How to Assembly one Part or the Other on these Great Engines.  Generally I can talk one through the process, but it takes time and doesn't really work that well for the rest of assembly.  This new Manual is just the ticket for those wishing to Assemble, or just know more about the 03-04 Cobra Engine.  It is written in a very laded back, easy to understand way, with many pictures and diagrams on the subject.  In all, there are 124 pages and several hundred photographs and diagrams to make sure you get the information you need to assemble your engine right.  In it, I also give all Torque Specifications for a Factory Correct assembly.

     The Assembly Manual starts with a fully assembled Long Block as the basis for the process.  From there we add each piece needed to build-up the engine to a complete and ready to go assembly.  Along the way, I help break-down the Lingo, or Ford speak as I call it, and let you know what each part is called, where it goes, and what it does.  We also explain the many variations of the engine, like Return or Return less Fuel Systems, and many of the popular options available today.  There is also plenty of conversation on the Electronics of the Engine, what they do, Where they are and how they function.  I'm sure anyone interested in the 03-04 Cobra Engine will enjoy this informative and interesting Manual.

     The Assembly Manual is only offered in PDF form, We send you a copy and you can view it on your computer, or print out the pages you need or all of it.  For current customers, we give you a 25% price break on the Assembly Manual, just order it and we will refund the 25% once you are recognized as a ProWeld Customer.  For first time customers, we will deduct your 25% of the cost of the Manual with an additional $75.00 purchase at the time of order!!  You get a wonderfully helpful Manual and Great parts in one package, what could be better!!

03-04 Cobra Inter-Cooler Coolant System

 

     Our Inter-Cooler Coolant System is for 03-04 Cobra Engines and really any engine that uses the same basic design layout, meaning a Front Mounted Radiator, Coolant Circulation Pump, Reservoir, and Inter-Cooler Water to Air Inter-Cooler. 

     The whole idea of our system is to take the complexity and random component fitting sizes out of the equation, and give a comprehensive system that supplies the system with coolant through a common size hose with the least amount of restriction possible.  The stock Ford Cobra system is very complex, ugly and expensive to piece together.  It also allows for excessive heat soaking of the coolant lines, which reduces the systems effectiveness.  System fittings, very between 5/8" , 3/4" and 7/8", which makes for problems when trying to connect a common hose between the many parts of the system.  Another huge problem is the ability to disconnect or remove the parts from the system, weather for repair or for access to other parts.  The typical hose connection is very stiff and generally requires damage to the hose to remove.  This isn't that bad for the average guy that never works on his engine, but for a racer, or car builder that has to mock things up time and again to get the fit right, or service the engine for basic between round maintenance, this gets to be a problem.  The other consideration is looks, yes all car owners are conscious of who their engines look, and nothing looks worse than a mess of ugly black rubber hoses. 

     When we designed our Inter-Cooler Hose System, we had several basic ideals:

1.     Take the complexity out of the system.  We thought it through, so you don't have to.

2.     Design a system that flows better than the original system.  We keep the hose sizes maximized to take advantage of better flow, and allow bigger, better flowing, circulation pumps.

3.     Make it easy to work with.  We have most lines with at least one end pre-terminated, and provide complete instructions.  Our kits come complete with all the Adapters, Reducers, Couplings, Hose, Fittings and Clamps needed, it a complete kit that solves all the issues.

4.     Design the system so repairs and maintenance can be performed easier, easy  to make and break fittings with rock solid reliability.  Our system converts all the push-on type fittings to a Threaded, AN type System!

5.     Make the system look good, use quality AN Fittings and Hoses…Plus offer accessories like the Temperature Gauge and Pressure Gage Kits, to monitor system performance.

6.     We use only Oetiker Single Ear Stainless Steel Clamps in our kits, these clamps have a very sleek and modern look to them, while providing a leak free seal.  They provide a custom look and we even include a set of Oetiker crimping Plies with the kit.

7.     Keep it flexible….that way individuals could use or system on other then stock Cobra Mustangs.  All Inter-Cooler system consist of the same parts, so by offering systems of different lengths, we could accommodate 99% of those wishing to use our system for their individual application.

     We supply each push-on fitting, which is all of the stock fittings, with short sections of AN Hose, one end is attached to the barbed fitting, and the other comes with a AN Swivel Type Threaded Fitting.  Once all the barb or push-on fittings have been converted to our adapter hoses, then they simply get connected up by similar hoses, with these having AN fittings on both ends, which makes the connection a breeze, and future disconnection even easier.  We can also accommodate any custom layout you might have, give us a call.

Pressure Gauge Kit

 

    One accessory we have to the Inter-Cooler coolant Hose System, is the Pressure Gauge Kit.  This allows you to monitor the system and its circulation Pump easily.  We typically mount it right at the inter-section where the coolant exits the inter-cooler, up you can mount it anywhere you see fit.  We use a high quality stainless steel, liquid filled pressure gauge, and all necessary fittings are included for a easy to install option.

 

 

Temperature Gauge Kit

 

     The Temperature Gauge Kit, like the Pressure Gauge Kit, is for monitoring the Inter-Cooler Coolant System.  You have to know what your system is doing to get the most out of it, and to prevent damage to the engine.  our easy to install system, allows you to monitor the inter-cooler coolant, either as it enters the inter-cooler or as it exists, or both with two kits.  We use only the best materials, with stainless steel gauge, and all necessary fittings included.

Inter-Cooler Coolant Circulation Pumps

    We offer two different Circulation Pumps, one is the stock Ford 03-04 Cobra - Lightning Pump and the other is a Billet Aluminum Meziere HP 20 Gal/Min Pump.  Both are very popular, and give great service, but the Stock Ford Pump only flows at 8 Gal/Min, while the Meziere pump flows over twice that amount.  If purchasing the Meziere pump, along with the Coolant Hose Kit, you will get the correct screw in fittings for that pump.  The Ford replacement pump uses Push-on fittings, which are standard in the kit.

Ford (Bosch) OEM Circulation Pump

Meziere, Billet Aluminum Circulation Pump

     We also have all Radiator Hoses, Heater Hoses and Thromstste Housings available at Pro Weld.  Plus Custom Steering Hoses & AC Hoses!
