A gear swap is a fairly cheap way to free up some hp. I would go with about a 3.9 if you still plan to drive on the street a lot or 4.10 if you plan on being at the track more. It might cost a bit more to have it instaled on yours however b/c the 01 cobra has IRS.

Re: cheap power upgrades

changing the rear gear ratio will make the car seem much quicker (it wont have more hp/tq but it will be faster). I would go with 3.73 or 4.10s.

Intake/tune would help a good bit as well
