Re: What to get?

Anyone?

The second one also has suspension all done just found out. Also interior is all new and clean i think im going with that one even though it does not have the supercharger on it i think with the current mods should be close to what i want?

and a little more reliable?

One more thing if i do go with tthat one ill have about 1000 left over whats a good mod to throw on top of what it has?

The notch. Should be good for low 13's. Possible 12's on slicks. The notchback is just a much cooler body.

I had that trick flow stage 1 cam in mine. Was very pleased with it and sounded great.

Re: What to get?

Get some good ones of that engine bay. I'd be curious to know if you could find out any more info on the '93 Cobra that the engine came out of. If it was wrecked or what the story is on it.....
Reason for that is I like to keep some records and inform the Cobra registry of any dead ones out there.
Much appreciated if you can. Congrats on the new Stang when you get it!!
