Worth it?

Bought a 97 cobra convertible with 15k miles never seen rain in perfect condition for 14k. Did I get a deal?

If it's in immaculate condition an you plan to keep it that way then yeah probably. If you plan to dd it, you're gonna watch it's value halve in a year.

Yes it does have low 15k miles, but is a 97 I felt maybe 11-12k might of been a better range. Post pics of it

Stock for stock, factory sidepipes kill horsepower compared to the factory undercar exhaust system.

Plus with a slp exhaust I'm gaining a little more then factory straights and cause of the side pipes I can't add lowering springs 😔

I read this all somewhere guys I'm only 17 this is my first car lol. I tried looking into it but I cant find very little on the side exhaust

All I found on it is that the exhaust is made by magnaflow and its stealing hp.

Well I wish my first car was a 97 cobra lol but usually an exhaust whether good or bad wont net you a lot of horse power with out some serious mods such as removing cats and upgrading headers and even that won't be a huge amount

What you need to do is take off those cats and free up that hp

Unless he is running forced induction there is no real increase to be found removing the cats.
