Default Engine Upgrades on 96 Cobra

I've been lookin into some engine mods for my cobra. Looking into the performance throttle bodies. Just need to know what is the best throttle body out there for the money and what size to get. My engine is all stock except for the BBK Cold air intake. Supercharger isnt out of the question either. Love to get one of those but so damn expensive. Just curious on what yall have done to yours and how you like your setups. Any insight would be great. Thanks!

From all the posts I have read...the stock TB is pretty damn good. SC is a good route to go for more power.

Whats an SC?
It stands for Super Charger or blower, FI which stands for forced inductioncould also stand for blower. And imho i'd sell the lambo door kit! To me they just dont belong on a mustang, especially a cobra! But this is basically they only TB i could find for your '96..

Well I've seen some Mustangs with the lambo kits and I've never seen one around here with them on so I decided to get them. 350 bucks aint bad for the kit? haha Couldnt pass it up. It was a direct bolt on so if I ever want to take them off I can. Still need to do some mods to it though but I will do that when I repaint the car. The paint is faded pretty bad. Yea I dont think I was thinkin when I saw SC. Thought it was somethin else other than a super charger. Had a dumb moment.

throttle bodies will give it a little extra umph, you should feel a better throttle response and you'll get some extra power out of it, probably one of my next bolt on mods for my motor i'm gonna do

I wouldn't waste my $ on a TB. Like already stated the Cobra TB is just fine. I would invest in Gears and exhaust mods. Maybe the Stalker body kit to go with your doorsJust F'n with ya.
