    GS-D3 or Nittos?

    yadda, yadda, yadda, search not working, yadda, yadda... I am in the market for new tires. My Cobra is a daily driver. It sees a little rain in Dallas and will never be driven in snow. Never go to the track, but would like to improve my 0-60 times. Since mine is an anniversary edition, I...

    Sound dampening the doors??

    First of all, I'm embarrassed to even ask this question! Most of you guys could work on your cars in your sleep. The most I've done is install the hood lifters and the MGW handle! I am getting ready to have a new sound system installed in the Cobra. As part of the install, I want to dampen...

    I've seen this rubberized undercoating at Pep Boys. Has anyone used something like this on your car, like in the wheel wells? Does it reduce road noise? Thanks!

    Could someone tell me the speaker sizes that are in the 03 Cobra and the sizes I could consider if I want to replace the 460 system? For example, will 6 1/2" speakers work in the doors? Thanks!! Jeff

    New speakers for the Mach 460 system?

    I walked into a car audio store today thinking I might upgrade the speakers in my Cobra. The saleman said they would not recommend changing speakers only as the Mach system will not work well with any other components - I would need to replace the entire system. Is this the case?

    Please, Make It Stop!

    I love my Cobra! But the noise is making me crazy! I had a Tri-Ax installed with a MGW handle (with the "sound damping" piece). The noise is driving me nuts! Especially in 1st and 2nd. How do I get rid of it? I want the tranmission quieter that stock. Any suggestions?

    Tonneau Cover Questions...

    I want to put a hard tonneau on my vert. I also want to get the lightbar and windscreen. The 2-piece tonneau seem to be the most practical, but I wonder if they look as good or are as solid as the 1-piece. Can the 1-piece fit in the back seat in the event of rain? Also, any idea on the...

    Magnaflow Catback with 4" Tips Installed!

    After much research on this site, I finally decided on a catback. I wanted more muscle than stock when I punch it, but tame when cruising. Special thanks to Bingo13 for turning me on to Kinney's Muffler in Bedford, TX. What a shop this is! Beautiful showroom, very clean with an extremely...

    Exhaust Question - Rolled Tips?

    I am planning to replace the catback on my 03 Cobra. I will be leaving the stock H-pipe and want a catback that is tame during idle and cruising, but muscular (but not real loud) when I get one it. I've heard Bassani is a good option, but have never heard one live. I would also like rolled...

    New (Very Happy) Cobra Owner

    Just traded my 01 GT for an 03 Torch Red Cobra convertable. I had never driven the Cobra before. What a rush! I am thrilled at the improvement in power and handling over the GT - which I also liked. The Cobra is just in another league. What a fun car! I have been lurking here for a...
