How can you be a Ford mechanic and not know about fox body mustangs?

Oh no, feel free to be an ***. Matter of fact, use that term copiously when referring to TexasBoneKing and I. You will find it fits us well.

Same bottem end, 93 cobra r is a different subject. It looks like a fair trade. I would say with that cobra u would have alot more torque. 93 cobra are pretty rare these days, that one is modded as hell though, I would probably trade em

Re: Trade for cobra???

I would trade also but all jokes aside.....when buying or trading for what someone says is a Cobra....do your research so you arent disappointed later when you find out its a clone. Just be safe is all im saying,if it is the real deal....go for it!!

That's like saying you know nothing about the original mustang....You know the internet has lots of useful information! lol.

If its a real cobra I would, but at the same time your car is super clean! Doesn't sound like you would be really losing anything doing it and there is just marginal gain by doing the trade. Hard to say.

Just to put my two cents in ford is not teaching bone king ancient technology.... Must fox bodies are worked on by the owner now days .... I have worked on cars for a long time and don't think I have worked on but a handful of fox gt or cobras .... Ford is busy with there variable valve timing and turbo boost systems.... And to the original poster a gt can be a cobra clone for about 1000 bucks where I live.... So be careful and a highly modified cobra in actual value would be worth less than an all original..... I love my 89 gt and if I put 15 grand into it I would probably never recoup the money.... So u buy it as a fast as hell mustang and not for potential cobra value..... Plus check the vin online

Re: Trade for cobra???

I found this info on the SVT Performance website.

Quote:
Absolutely no 93 Cobra convertables made.

There were 4993 Cobras and 107 Cobra R's produced in 1993 for a total of 5100.

1FACP42D... is how the VIN should read. No Cobra came with cruise control. Only 5 options were available - PWR drivers seat, leather, CD, Rear window defrost, and Sunroof. Engine block heater, CA emissions, High Altitude principle use, and million mile odometer were also available, but don't show up on the door tag, buck tag, or VIN.

• Unique 17x7.5 turbine style wheels (unique offset - 93 Cobra is 3/4" wider per side with unique front rotors with taller hats)
• Opened up grill area with running horse insert
• Unique rear bumper, side skirts and grill opening
• Rear disc brakes
• Snake emblems on fenders should be non-directional (DS faces to the back, passenger side faces to the front, unique to 93 Cobras)
• LX style tailpipes
• SVO style tail lights
• Unique rear spoiler
• GT40 Iron heads (3 "bars" should be visible on front of head, "GT" cast into head under valve cover
• Black stamped steel valve covers (94-95 Cobra valve covers have "Cobra" embossed into them).
• Crane 1.7 roller rockers, cast aluminum
• Available in 3 colors only: Teal metallic, Vibrant Red (kinda orange red), Black
• 70mm MAF
• 65mm throttle body
• Cobra (cast GT40) upper and lower intake
• Unique mufflers and tailpipes (extended hangers on LX style tailpipes)
• Smaller front sway bar - 28.5mm as compared to the larger 33mm unit used on the GT, the rear bar measured 21mm
• 4 cylinder rear springs and regular 5.0 front springs. The front springs were 425/530 lbs./in progressive rate, while the rear springs had a linear rating of 160 lb./in versus a progressive 200/300 lb./in. rate used on the GT.
• Unique struts and shocks (Tokico was the OEM supplier)
• Unique cam (Used in 93 t birds and cougars, 94-95 Australian falcons)
• Unique EEC (X3Z catch code)
• 24# injectors
• 1" bore master cylinder
• Larger brake booster
• Unique tranny (World Class T5) - phosphate coated 2nd and 3rd gears, steel pocket bearing retainer
• Stock 5.0 fuel pump
• Hardened driveshaft yoke
• Unique brake proportioning valve
• Non cruise leather wrapped steering wheel
• Lettered floormats
• Unique crank and water pump pulleys (underdriven crank, overdriven WP)
• 3:08 ring and pinion
• Higher-rate bushings at the forward end of the rear upper control arms

Exterior Colors: Teal Clearcoat, Vibrant Red Clearcoat, Black Clearcoat
Interior Colors: Black Cloth, Grey Cloth, Grey Leather

The biggest and easiest indicator is the VIN number.

Well,we gotta maintain that "staff" mentality sometimes so we don't get caught up doing the things that we moderate. If you knew me on a personal level you would know that I'm always about the jokes and acting a fool.
