Hi All -

Joined the Club this afternoon, and just wanted to start my own thread of introduction!

Bought my 99 Cobra in 2001 used from a dealer, with 21k under the hood. Car was flawless until last year when according to DJ Ford in monroe, a tab broke off one of the rod bearings at 48k (Im lost on that whole thing) and was ingested through the bottom end... On the bright side - my aftermarket warranty foot the bill for a brand spanking new 4.6 crate from detroit, with another 36k of engine warranty from Ford! (Only took 6 weeks to get the car back)

I now have 3k on the new motor and want to get back to a few Mods on the car! Thus far... Its really very stock! The original owner added a few small things... Shifter, Flowmaster Catback system, K&N etc... When the engine change took place, I immediately noticed a more throaty sound from the exhaust, but I also noticed a loss in the SOTP feel! I am sure the original owner also had a custom tune on the chip... which I now need to look at myself!

Anyhow... Welcome to me (I hear you all cheering out there)

Welcome aboard.

With the mods on your car, you don't need a chip or custome tune..

Hi All -

Thanks for the group of welcomes!

I already received my welcome kit yesterday! (FAST) and I have a few quick questions.

Is there a particular spot on the car I should display the window decal (Small circular decal with Club logos) so it is recognized "At a Glance" by you all who may be passing in the other direction to give a quick hoot!

Second... the smaller "SVTCobraClub.com" decals... where have you stuck these? I know it is recommended to put them on the side windows... but has anyone got pictures of how they look there? I looked this morning at the window space... and iut is on a small angle. Any help is good!!

Thanks again,

Mark

I'm an odd ball when it comes to the little circle sticker. I put mine right above my inspection sticker, but have seen most of them placed in the lower right corner of the windshield. As for the .com stickers, I have some on my convertible, and they look great. I do not have any pictures of this, but it fits perfectly. I, also, have a .com banner on my windshield. It is the kind that is just a outline of the letters. Tony, also, offers one that is solid letters. :thumbsup:
