So i am a first time member to the SVT club but i heard it was for the elite so thats what i wanted. So as of tomorrow i am taking ownership of a 97 triple black cobra convertible. IT already has a flowmaster exhaust, where should i start for bolt on horse power? The bank didn't approve me for enough to get the kenne bell kit, so i have to hold off till next summer i think. But where should i start?

Cold Air- JLT makes a nice one, Western Motorsports makes a nice one

gears, get 4.10 gears, they will really wake the car up

for a vert, look into getting some sub frame connectors to help with chassis flex.

adding pullies will get you some decent hp gains


welcome to the forum, by the way:thumbsup: , show some pictures when you get a chance

i looked at the JTL and i noticed that you had to remove the front sway bars? is this a big deal especially with the vert? second how much does the sport bar help with flexing i dont mind the look and if it helps, than even better? does anybody reccomend any specific lowering springs?

Well, not exactly. For some reason people think that, but it is not our intent to be "elite" but rather just be an SVT Cobra Club. Sort of like the Saleen Club, Roush Club, Bullitt Club, etc... We just want our membership to be all SVT Cobras and 2007- 08 Shelby GT 500's since they derived from us, not the other way around.

We're glad you chose us as the forum to frequent! :thumbsup:

it is actually your shock tower brace. I think it helps a lot with the verts. Some might say no. I say, leave it stock, that is why I went with the Western Motorsports.

+1 to the MGW shifter, they are the best

Welcome.

Anyway, start with gears. One of the only NA mods you will actually feel on the buttdyno. Then get some subframe connectors.
