Cobra Owners

What was your first mod? I know you don't really have to do much because the car is pretty much sex in a box anyway, but I figured I'd just get a feel of what you guys did first.

Re: Cobra Owners

I had a shifter waiting on my car before I even picked it up. If it doesn't have a shifter you will definitely enjoy that mod over any others.

From there I went all over the place, suspension was #2 though.

Re: Cobra Owners

I was looking at getting an MGW after reading what Venom and Spec said about them.

Re: Cobra Owners

Shifter then Exhaust (one tip, go with a catback that you can POLISH and polish it before you install it (while making SURE the tips are covered with something thick to prevent scratching them)

Then CAI and then lowered the car, dont need any more suspension work really as since I dont race my car or beat on it generally no need not at this point.

Also I would upgrade the IRS to the HDD brace (99 cobras have the weakest irs as well) and the billetflow IRS brace as well.

Since yours has stingers on it already, polish away

Re: Cobra Owners

If it was me with an 01 cobra my list of mods would be,

catback and off road x-pipe.
CAI and tune.
shifter and springs.

if it was an 03/04 cobra I would pulley it with the tune

Indeed, I won an "exhaust off" at the meet we had yesterday. I had kept it below 3000 rpm for most of the day, then let it hit 6k and jaws dropped. Stingers = the win.

Re: Cobra Owners

My first mod was the hydraulic hood struts from Saleen. l had installed a pr on my '98 and they were fast and easy to do. Next came 2 new mufflers, 2 nearly new tires, a Cobra trunk mat, Cobra floor mats and a LeBra front end cover. l also picked up a set of Cobra tire valve caps. Next will come a stereo and shifter. l also want to add the later Cobra side scoops. l need to take my passenger side door off to readjust the window. lt came up too far and won't go down That's better than being down, but l don't like the window up w/ the top down. Call me crazy, but....lol
