03 GT and 99 cobra mid pipes

Yeah cat backs no haha but I just wanna know so we don't have to save two whole mid pipes you know, just be a lot easier storing one set of cats that we can just swap out

IIRC the Cobra midpipe will be wider. You actually can use a Cobra IRS catback in a SRA equipped car with little issue... does not work the other way around tho.

IMO, get the part for your car and don't try to mix/match, it'll just piss you off and probably cost you more in the end.

Is there a write up somewhere about the car back? And it's just for looks right? Haha

Maybe I will just do that, it's just gonna take up a lot of room saving two full mid pipes haha

To each his own. I like it on my cobra because that was one of the distinguishing features from a gt. Nobody knows it's on a sra unless they climb under it.

My garage.

It looks identical to irs exhaust on a car with irs.

Does it go over the axle then drop down? Or does it go under the axle?

That about when you raise the car? Does it hit the pipe?

You have irs or sra

It looks good with the cobra rear bumper because the gas tank doesn't show like the gt rear. Cobras rear look good IRS or sra

The IRS CB fits fine on a SRA and one of the big benefits of it is you don't have to worry about clearance over the axles on lowered vehicles. The pipes themselves go underneath right by the tires so it will be VERY hard to bottom out and speedbumps won't matter like they do if your midpipe is hanging really low.

I drop the pipes when not raising by the axle. Takes 30 seconds.

I have a built sra. Got sick of tearing up the irs.

I promise i could install my bassani cb on the gt and you wouldn't know the difference. The polished pipes get all the attention.

It literally looks just like it does on a Cobra from the back, just google a pic of a Cobra and gander at that. The only way you'll tell the difference is to pop your head under the car and actually look at the SRA.
