I'm about 99% sure I'll be picking up a 1997 Cobra. Just a few questions about it...

First, what are my radio options? I had an 01 GT that I put a cd player in, and it was a sinch. What do i do with this double head unit crap?

Second, the check engine light is on. I brought my scan tool with me, it has a P1151. More than likely dirty or bad maf? It has like a four hundred year old K&N filter in it... Suppose it could be a rear O2 as well.

If you're curious, as I said before, it's a 97 Cobra, Black with black leather, 100% stock, 119,000 miles, no accidents and not a spot of rust on the car. You could eat off the undercarriage. I'm paying $5,000-$5,500 for it.

Any input or past experiences would be great to hear!

There are plenty of options for the stereo. There are quite a bit of choices in the double din market. Everyone will have there own opinion but I chose to go with pioneer.

How would that work for my car? The two units are staggered, with a piece of trim between them...

You can get any single DIN stereo, and a pocket/cubby for the bottom hole.
To use a double DIN you'd have to cut/modify that console, which I don't recommend. It's best to stick with a single.

I would suggest you look at www.crutchfield.com to see what fits. They are really helpful

That car will fit just about any stereo you want! All the interiors about the same around the at year. I have a double din in my daily driver and a single DIN in my Cobra. i will be switching to the Pioneer App radio! If you have a Iphone or a droid phone then get this!! Its sweet! Well worth the money!


AppRadio 2 (SPH-DA100) - <b>NEW!</b> - In-Dash iPhone� 4/4S and Android™ Compatible Car Receiver with 7" Capacitive Multi-Touch Screen, Built-In Bluetooth for Hands-Free Calling, and On-Screen Access to Compatible Smartphone

Very cool. I do have an iPhone, and i have the intergration setup in my truck and my wives car so I can listen to Spotify. Its awesome. I may go cheap with the radio, we'll see. So many things I'll have to spend money on... It's gonna be fun.
