cobra from GA

hey guys. i'm dustin. i'll be a freshman at vsu this fall. i've had my baby for about a year now. she's a 96 cobra black with saddle interior. she's got 87,000 miles on her and still runs strong. i've taken care of her and put alot of work into the cosmetics. here's a list of the performance mods i've done so far:

k&n air filter (of course)
flowmaster 40's
msd wires and coil packs
5.0 pro shifter
king cobra clutch kit
tokico ilumina suspension
18x9, 18x10.5" 03 cobra wheels wrapped with Vredestein sessantas
and last, the steeda battery relocation kit.

planned future mods include bbk headers and 3:73's. if anyone has any suggestions for other mods please let me know. it will be much appreciated.

Go with 4.10's instead of 373's. The 03 Cobra wheels look right at home on your 96! Glad you came out to visit us in our forums..

welcome, great looking Cobra!! And I agree with cobrabtn, get the 4.10's. I did, by his recommendation, and love them. As far as headers are you going midlength or longtube? If longtube research other brands. With the BBK's, if you ever need a clutch installed, you will have to take off one of the headers, which will kill you in labor. There are several manufacturers that make longtube headers that don't require taking a header off for a clutch fix

If you get tired of the Pro 5.0 shifter, go with a MGW.

hey thanks for the tip about bbk. i do plan on going longtube after reading hundreds of threads. but about the 4.10's, i plan on going s/c in the near future and correct me if i'm wrong but from what i've read 4.10's would just be overkill.

thanks for all the compliments guys!
