Aeromotive Fuels 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Dragster

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Mustang Cobra Jet, Ford Performance unveiled its new limited production, drag racing special Cobra Jet. Fueling this new machine down the track is Aeromotive’s Pro Series Fuel pump.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Mustang Cobra Jet, Ford Performance unveiled last week its new limited production, drag racing special Cobra Jet at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit. Ford described it as the fastest production Mustang on the drag strip, capable of quarter-mile times in the mid-eight-second range at 150 mph. Fueling this hot, new machine down the track is Aeromotive’s Pro Series Fuel pump.

The 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet is a limited-edition turnkey race car that honors the 50th anniversary of the original that dominated drag strips in 1968.

While horsepower figures have not been released yet, prevailing thought is that it will be substantial considering it comes with a bored-out 5.2-liter version of Ford’s Coyote V8 and a 3.0 liter Whipple supercharger. Additional features include a nine-inch solid rear axle, height-adjustable coilovers, an NHRA-certified roll cage and FI-certified racing seats. Only 68 of the commemorative Cobra Jets will be built with a choice of two color options: Race Red or Oxford White. The price is set at $130,000.

Aeromotive president, Steve Matusek says, “As a company, we are intrinsically involved in the drag racing market and consistently use the track for serious product testing. To be chosen by Ford to provide a high performance fuel system for the 50th Anniversary drag racing special Mustang Cobra Jet is a terrific honor and a testament to our reputation for quality.”

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
