Just got a 96 SVT and I', new here, VIRGIN

Hey everyone, I just picked up a 96 Cobra SVT and want to know as much about it as Possible. So I am new to this world and this forum and would appreciate all the help and guidance I can get. The car is BOX stock so I get to start from scratch.

Welcome aboard!!
the mileage is kinda high 155k but, I got it from original owner and the car is in fantastic condition, it needs a rt front fender and a ding in rt door fixed, no oil leaks no bondo and near perfect interior, some wear with no rips or tears. EVERYTHING works.
I'm doing plugs wires and fuel filter this week, and changing out ALL the flluids, the struts and shocks are on order, KYB AGX all the way around and eibach springs, the lower control arm bushings are getting done at the same time. The rack, tie rod ends and tires were just done by us back in December (I am a Service Manager for Big O Tires)

Then I start on the performance mods, that's where I am really gonna need this forum, I own a k6 1k gixxer and found forums to be EXTREMELY helpful,
so thanks for the welcome guys, I'm gonna be here for a long while.



pix will come later

Welcome to M.E.
She is gorgeous!
Whatever mods you do to her make sure you have your Stang tunes every time! CAI, exhaust an gears should be your first 3 mods! And of course tune!

welcome, first anything you take off KEEP and put it up as you never know what you will need.

Get a new shifter the stock one SUCKS. I highly suggest mgwltd.com shifters

get exhaust, you can keep the cats or not thats up to you, but go with a good brand thats in stainless steel (Borla for example)

Lower it and consider different rims if you want to change it up. Lowering makes a HUGE difference.

Hey thanks,
yeah on the gears this thing has some long gears in it, whats a good streetable gear to consider? And yeah on the exhaust and CAI, I did the reflash on my gixxer and am very aware of the benefits that brings too, so it it will be on the agenda for sure too.
