If youre gonna do that setup, just get the torque arm setup too. Just saying. It will handle better than it will with the uppers still intact.

I've built, had built, bought and driven fox's, sn95's, new edge and s197's and they all have their advantages. For new edges as a DD, 03-04 Cobras are hard to beat. For all out horsepower and ease of tuning...a carbed Fox would be my choice.

There are just so many variables out there.

But I might do a torque arm later but I really doubt it. According to MM the torque arm will most likely weld to my current subframe connectors so I wouldn't have to change them out, but it changes everything related to the way the front and rear of the car handles. Along with the torque arm you need a special set of rear springs. I checked with two installers (One in Indianapolis and one in Cincinnati). Installation for the LCAs, panhard bar, and torque arm was over $3,000.

I'm not looking to have a $5,000 suspension and I'm pretty sure I can put on the LCAs and panhard bar myself for about $650.

Agreed ' As long as you have the funds , there is a wide variety of choices. Its like being a kid in a candy store.

new edges and S197s are definitely everywhere around here. You can't swing a stick without hitting a new edge in Memphis.

I'd say there are about as many s197s as new edges, followed by sn95s and foxes after that. I've seen quite a few 2010's running around lately as well.

Man I see a lot of everything her in Washington state... Mostly new edge mustangs though, and about 10 Mach 1's. I want mine to be at about 450hp, S/C, full race suspension and complete factory interior, love it!

I'd like to have full suspension, built motor with h/c/i, and a single turbo for my DD.
