        5 1999 Cobra - Gresko99SVT Installation Time: Weekend

        Best kit, hands down!

        When rebuilding the top end of my 99 Cobra, American Muscle was the best value I found. Even aftermarket kits either wanted more money, or came with less parts. I feel even better putting genuine Ford Racing Performance Parts in my car. The kit fit perfectly and was easy to install. My first DOHC rebuild but these parts made it a breeze. Would recommend to anyone wanting factory parts at the best prices. Thanks American Muscle!

        5 2002 GT - 32vnomad Installation Time: Afternoon

        Whats to loose

        I once ordered a head kit for my 4v swap from online, the head gaskets that it came with it were very flimsy. The exhaust gaskets were a perforated coated soft gaskets. The Ford head gaskets on there own cost more than the kit. You can't beat it MLS gaskets, bolts, and sturdy exhaust gaskets. You gotta just say....... why not?

        No better deal out there.

        After blowing a head gasket on my Mach, I looked around locally for the gaskets with all the major part stores. Surprisingly these were cheaper in the long run. When you can get everything you need for the job at one time, at almost half the cost, well you just can't beat that. To top it off its a Ford Racing product.

      wjat are the tubes for? i cant recall maybe someone could explain why it comes with 6 tubes!?

      • I can't see them in the pic. But, I'd say the Tubes or Sleeves keep the Gasket in place and centered, so it doesn't move out of place during installation.

      What is the purpose for the tubes? One of the other questions answer said they are for the intake but what is their purpose

      • The tubes included in the Ford Performance DOHC 4V 4.6L Head Changing Kit are spacers designed to assist in replacement of the cylinder head, but are not required.
