    FOR SALE: 97 Cobra OEM Catback Takeoff Under 20K Miles

    Ford stainless catback system removed from a 97 Cobra by the car's second owner in 1999. I purchased it in 2012 in case I wanted to return my Cobra to stock but realize now that day will never come. Time to get this in the hands of someone with a restoration project. Tailpipes were cutoff...

    WANTED: 97 Cobra stock catback

    I have a complete exhaust system from a 96 or 97. It is heavy and shipping from Kansas City will not be inexpensive. PM me if you are still in the market. It is at the bottom of my spare Cobra parts pile. Looking at your sig .... I have a spare Teksid long block too. ;)

    WANTED: Main Cap Bolts 96 Teksid w/Windage Tray

    WOW! OEM quality TTY bolts have been hard to find and ridiculously expensive when I do. Ordered a set of ARP main cap and side bolts for about 50% more than TTY. Parts for these cars are getting harder to source every year.

    WANTED: Main Cap Bolts 96 Teksid w/Windage Tray

    Where do you guys source main cap bolts from? This build does not require ARP fasteners, so sticking with standard TTY replacements. MMR has main cap bolts available. I've not been able to find a Ford part number to check dealer availability.

    '97 Convertible- subframe connectors?

    It seems that most of the folks that have installed subframes are glad that they did. Like everything else, results are dependent on the quality of work done. I'd love to see some data on what the bracing actually does, though. Seat of the pants feel will improve for sure with subframes...

    My second choice after Motorcraft is BWD. I've never gotten a defective BWD part.

    '97 Convertible- subframe connectors?

    Stock Cobra Vert has a front cross brace bolted in place. My 96 suffered from the same suspension noise until I replaced the front bushings with Moog parts and the rear control arm with a NOS factory replacements. There is no suspension noise now. Since this car is a weekend cruiser that sees...

    driver seat track cleaning

    Yup. I bought a kit from two men 1 garage that was fairly simple to install. There are a few minor modifications required, but instructions are provided and easy to follow. It worked so well that I got a second kit to add a power passenger seat too. http://www.2men1garage.net/ They...

    Idle stuck around 2k. Any ideas??

    Best of luck. These kinds of issues can be a real pain to pin down, but perseverance usually wins out. Kudos for making the effort to bring a Cobra back to life.

    Idle stuck around 2k. Any ideas??

    1800 RPM is where mine goes on a cold start. Have you checked both temps sensors in the crossover pipe? One runs the dash gauge and the other is an input to the CPU. Do you still have IMRCs installed? One of the most common vacuum leak points on these cars is o-rings on each end of the...
