I bought set of Steeda full length subframe connectors with torque box reinforcement plates. Also bought a set of tubular rear control arms from SR Performance and Ford Racing lowering springs. I found a set of Cobra R style wheels on Craigslist in 17x9 and 17x10.5. I have an extra set of 17x10.5 wheels that I can throw some drag radials on. So far no engine mods, but I did buy a Cobra intake off of a 1995 Cobra. I see several sets of Headers and X Pipes available locally on Craigslist cheap. A set of MAC shorty headers off of a 1995 GT and a BBK x pipe off of a 1993 Cobra. Will this x pipe fit? Some brands show 1979-1995 as same part number for mid pipes while other brands show different part number for the 1994-1995 GT. What is the difference? I continue to seek out cheap used parts. I've nicknamed my car the Junkyard Dog.
I always suggest sticking to a single manufacturer for headers and mid pipe.
Do not run fox parts. More often than not, they don't fit
