Just had 4.10's put into my 97 Cobra and i couldn't be happier...all my buddies said the gears would be too much and too hard on gas and they couldn't have been more wrong...big difference...i'm lowering the car next...any suggestions on where to go for power next?

Ford Racing aluminum flywheel and Ford Racing aluminum drive shaft are very nice drive-line mods to go with the 4.10:1 ring-and-pinion. Also, 31-spline axles rock!

Steeda and Ford Racing both sell engine perforance kits. It you check s these forms you'll find a lot of advice. Good luck.

The pulley-conversion kits are a popular power-adder, but you want to be careful to get a quality kit that works well in relation to the OEM harmonic balancer on the front of the crankshaft. Otherwise, you might end-up with a horked engine (damaged main bearings).


Injected Engineering (http://www.injectedengineering.com/contact.php) would likely be able to advise you on which pulley kit would be best for a '97 Cobra, and they might be able to order it for you as well. (Their on-line store carries parts of '03-present Cobras, but they would likely still be able to order a pulley kit for a '97 Cobra.)

I have a 98 cobra with a complete Mac exhaust system with long tube headers,BBKthottle body,BBK cold air kit,pullys & Pro-dyno tune. 307 rwhp & 301 tq. Yes it was worth it. I mostly use the car for track days.

Supercharger with 3:73's IS to much gotta hate them. I will be going all the way back to 3.27's unless the 3.31's from the 08 Shebly GT500's fit. THERE IS SUCH A THING AS TO MUCH GEAR! :eek: ;) :D

yeah, but I don't have 645 RWHP :eek: so 3:73 would be to much :thumbsup:
so the 500 has 3:31 gear! Had a friend by a 2008 CS and it has 3:55's :cool:

4.10 gears are great for modular cars. I am running 3.73 in my 95 cobra. :thumbsup:

I have an SCT chip (because that is what the guy who tunes my car installed, to go with his EPROM burner.) I hear that Diablo Sport chips are fine as well.
