Back with a Cobra

Well guys, I'm a 19 yr old college student, my first car was a 2003 v6 mustang my step dad gave to me and that's when I truly fell in love with mustangs. I customized it and made it my baby. At the end of my senior year I told her and bought a 2007 BMW 335i and tuned it and ran a fastest time of 13.3 in it. Fastest car I had driven to date. Loved it as well for it's smoothness on the road, but wasn't the same muscle car, wide stance, ride like a mustang. Just 3 days ago I got a wonderful deal on a 2004 FireRed Cobra with 89,000 miles for 15,000$ with two small problems, one the clutch fork rattled, easy fix, just tighten up the clutch line, and the second? I've never driven a standard...
Needless to say, I learned in a day, and driving it daily now, I drive less than 6000 mls are year being as my job and college are right down the street. I'm so glad to be back with a mustang and back with the forum.
Here are pics of my cars:

I recently just ordered some exterior mods.
It has 275 nitto 555rs on back and 255s on front stock rims.
Stage 2 clutch and MGW short throw.
I just ordered
Tail and 3rd brake tints
And gloss black deck lid
Black fuel door
And black steel cobra inserts
And black shorty antenna
Cobra license frame

Plan to do a gloss black and red theme and eventually lower it over black cobras or saleens.

I have a buddy selling a ported eaton for 300 which when he does his SC swap ill pick up.
Then from there ill do that
2.73 pulley
100mm idler and all new red pulleys to run stock belt size.
O/R X
With flowmaster 40s or super 44s
And tune to wrap it up.

Have a nice 460-480rwho daily cobra and when the time comes for a full rebuilt then I will go all out.
For now just a very reliable street driven monster with all the extra supporting and cooling mods.
Ex. Head cooling mod/upgraded heat exchanger

I may pull the deck lid off, depends on how it looks.
I'm for sure tinting the brake lights.

Oh yeah tint them. Always looks good. Honestly I'm not sure if I've seen a cobra with a black deck lid.
