Find out how much HP it has, then I would give a offer , but it's hard to but a price on modded mustangs , you never get back what you put into the car unless it's showroom statues but for it being a 96 mustang , 12k into it, IMO $5,500-$7,000

There's a 1995 cobra , supercharged over 20k in mods and he's asking $9,000 for it !

Ok so he never tuned it on a dyno? Then how is he running a stage 3 cam?? I dunno IMO I think this guy may be blowing smoke up the proverbial "tail pipe". I'd ask to see receipts for some of the stuff he's claiming. Not saying the car isnt good looking (minus the spoiler lol). I personally don't trust it but hey just my 2 cents.

if it truely has what he claims i'd put it right around 300 hp...i mean it's not a huge build list, but it is a pi swap so the compression difference is nice, but something tells me his "prized" possession has been ragged hard. also he said it has a head problem...sadly we don't know if it's a gasket issue or a crack :/ and well that's something you need to consider having to fix right off the back.

also running no tune on a modular motor with those mods is a no no...after finishing my friends pi swap it needed a tune in a bad way lol.

finally i notice he has no idea what 3" drop springs look like because that's a 2" drop if anything..so makes me wonder what else he is confused on.

if i was off this weekend i'd be happy to come with you to look it over

Nah they definitely dont.Ive personally called and asked about a tune for some stage 1 N/A cams and they told me they can't tune for cams or SC or turbo. They do offer a tune for up to 100 shot nitrous though.

Not if he hasn't put it on a dyno he doesn't. a stage 3 would be way too aggressive to not be tuned.

Ok man I'm just looking out for you. Im simply suspicious of the car because he said it has a head problem and claims to have put in stage 3 cams with no dyno tune. My theory is that if he does indeed have stage 3's that's probably what is causing the head problem and they may be damaged from him running them without a proper tune.

You won't or don't see it now but every day that passes cars like yours become harder to find and even more rare by the day.

Also remember, if it sounds like it may be too good to be true.. It is. Guys don't sell cars with that kind of cash invested and do all the labor and trade it for something of less value for no reason. Be careful.. Sounds like he is trying to get over IMO.. I'd hate for you to trade only to find out later you got F'D... Also ask for receipts, if what he says is true he will have them.

Definitely ask to see receipts doesn't look like a 3 inch drop at all.
