I don't know much about suspension(besides the fact that mine needs to be changed...) but if your doing a rebuild might want to go with a 4.2.

You won't be able to put a hood on it actually

exactly and you could get a cowl hood and cut around I've seen it done well with rubber so water won't get inside it looks like a monster

Agreed. If I was doing a rebuild I would try to go this route.

do an m112 swap, if you have the funds it suppose to provide great low end torque. I thought it would be neat that instead of a m112 to get one of the aftermarket twinscrew superchargers. They made some for the 03/04 cobra and the V6 kit is suppose to make it use the m112 off of a 03/04 cobra so it should bolt up.

just use a GT rear-end. It will be more than strong enough.

with a NA setup I'd run 4.10's, and with boost depending on how much torque i'm pushing i'd probably get some higher gears so I don't fry my tires off.
