Hello

Just wanted to say hi. I'm totally new to Ford, especially Mustangs, but I was given a 1997 Cobra for free today so of course I wasn't going to turn it down lol. Anyways just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully I can gain some great knowledge here. Not sure about any mods done to it. The only thing I am sure about is I saw MSD wires, the coils looked to be MSD as well, a short throw shifter and the tailpipes say Borla on them. I will post more info when I have it, not sure if it's full exhaust either. Hopefully I can figure out what brand the guy put in for everything. I only looked under the hood to jump it cause it was dead from sitting so long. Maybe if I post some pics people will be able to help me identify the mods. I'm not new to cars but I've only had my 2004 Hyundai Tiburon since 2005 so that's all I've modded, mildly of course. Oh and it's red if anyone was gonna ask or not. Hopefully this week I can get some solid info on it.

Re: Hello

As stated above I haven't really checked the car out, but I have a question for the more experienced guys. The registration says 97, but the owner says it came stock with a 5.0L. But the best of my knowledge the 97's came with 4.6L's. Am I wrong, I'm just at work right now and can't really go and look for myself. Either the registration is wrong with the year or the owner was wrong. Or there is nothing wrong and it really is a 97 with a 5.0L. Oh well feel free to answer or I'll just find out myself when I have time. Thanks again.

Re: Hello

97 used a 4.6. Maybe he did a motor swap? Though you're going from OHC to OHV which may be more complicated than most people want to do.

Re: Hello

He didn't do a motor swap. He was the second owner and the first had all documentation on the car. So it looks like it's a 4.6L probably. If it's in fact a 95 could it have a 5.0L?

Re: Hello

Thank you very much. Now I just have to get that squared away. Unfortunately it's like a tsunami outside and I'm just excited to have this car and am trying to get as much info right now. I'm researching pictures of peoples wheels cause I'm thinking of doing 18X9 in the front and 18X10 in the back with the Deep Dish Black Bullitt wheel from 94-04. Just gotta see if I like the look

Re: Hello

LOL. Lets just say, people shouldn't cheat on girlfriends who have your Cobras in their name because it was a nice gift from her lol. Bad luck for him, good luck for me! Hopefully he's not registered on this site lol... that would be awkward

Re: Hello

Ok it finally stopped raining. Door jam says 97 so it's gonna be a 4.6L and no the girl he cheated on my sister with was not hot. Kinda looks like an elf lol. Newest mod I just saw under the hood is a BBK Cold Air Induction and yes the coils are MSD as well. Wonder what other goodies I will find.
