yuhh

wrong headers and wrong gears. No offense but those 2 mods you have were pretty pointless. Shorty headers barely add much power, should have gotten long-tube. And as for gears, cobras love to rev and their power-range is in the upper rpms so getting at least 4.10s would really open her up, 4.30s being perfect shifting to 4th just before the trap

suspension, gears, and headers were on the car when i bought them..not changin them


edit: also..it's my daily driver and i drive on the highway alot..so i don't think anything over 3.73 would be practical for me.

Dude, sweet looking Cobra. I love those rims and the headlights and fogs have a nice subtle touch to them.

yeah...this car is soo fun to drive. I used to have a Roush Stage 3 modded with over 400 rwhp and suspension work done..but nothing like this. Even though that car was alot faster..this car is alot more fun to drive.

Eh, 3.90's have always been a nice "middle of the road" gear for daily drivers...

BEAUTIFUL COBRA!!!
