    just a suggestion so you dont have to get under the dash, but you can loosen the driver motor mount and lower the engine with a jack and 2x4. saves alot of time and headache. I have done it this way and then seen a buddy do it the quick way and was amazed on how much quicker it was. Only need to lower a 1/4 inch or so. OP great write up and pic though

    Just a little smack talk man. Don't get your panties in a wad.

    Let's get back on topic and not destroy this good information thread.

    I'm trying to picture it but cant really see how that would help much. Does it put the motor on an easier angle to get the lower bolts off and slip the valve cover out?

    yeah from what i remember it was almost a stright pull out once i had pulled the master and booster...

    there is like 2 inches or so of room under the master but you still have to get over all the caps...

    I think next time they come off the motor will just be pulled out for cams hahah heard its easier to drop the subframe to do them haha

    if your doing cams you mine as well drop the motor and pull the heads. update the springs with better ones and also get the guides replaced so you take away the potential for the head tick issue that plagues some cobra owners.

    hahaha oh yeah, its just the whole thing of, i dont have a hoist in my garage hahaha i might end up pulling it from the top :shrug: which really may suck.

    I think if i do them i might get into spending the money to get everything done while im there. tossed around the idea of heads if i were to do it but lots of money $$$... either way it wont be for atleast another year that ill toy with the idea of cams/head work... just to much damn work haha i dont feel like doing.

    What do you mean by loosening the mount? Wouldn't it still be sitting on the mount unless you removed the mount itself?

    sorry yes you would basically remove the driver engine mount to be able to lower that side of the engine. I will be doing this in a month so I will post pics.

    If I am just removing the valve covers to paint them, do I have to remove the supercharger and intake?

    no you dont just the intake plenum and tb also remove the fuel injectors so the harness doesnt get in the way on the passenger side.
