Post Ever installed or ran Cobra Power Motors

I would love to get some feedback from all of you who have ran, installed Cobra motors. I am considering going with either Cobra 675(540 cubic inch) or 725 (572 cubic inch)motors in place of my 500efi for my 37 Active Thunder. I was looking for some feedback on reilability, engine idle, durability etc... Thanks for the input.

Thumbs up

should be a good "call me"...COBRA has been around for a while and a lot of the manufacturers seem to be using them.

It was neither. I haven't had any personal experience with Cobra, rather I was just telling Dan to give me a call.
