    A friend and I got in a heated argument last night about the fact that the '66 Corvette came with a Cobra Jet engine. I had to disagree being that Ford are the ones that I believed that had the engine in them.

    So whats the truth?

    I was aguing with this damn freshman ford auto student, he claimed that the Ford 9" rear is thee strongest axle ever. I told him the GM 14BFF was stronger but he was set on the 9". Then he said it was impossible to have 40psi of boost, hello turbo diesel. This kid was an idiot /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif.

    yep and a 351W was the old Winston cup race motor... I may not know it all but I am usually right compared to other people and I love when people still disagree with me then when I prove them wrong after hours of them fighting me they act like it never mattered to them. I hate people I really do.
