    need some help guys

    Took my O1 cobra to the track a month ago for the first time. Mph was pretty low so I brought her home. A while back I installed a catch can system, I discovered it was clogged up pressurizing my crank case so all of my spark plug tunnels were full of oil. This past weekend I replaced all my...

    Radio swap question

    I know I could just go buy an aftermarket radio and be done with it, but I was wondering if there was any other ford vehicle perhaps a little newer that utilizes the same wiring harness as my 01 cobra. I'd really like something newer that utilizes the ability of bluetooth link up or even the...

    Sail panel or B pillar question

    Since I creamed a deer earlier this year wiping out my front bumper, hood, fender, windshield and door I have given up keeping my 01 cobra original. I had the front bumper replaced with a Cervinis 00 R, and hood with the 95 R style hood. I found a local guy that has a white 04 Mach1 that his son...

    Ive had my 01 cobraa for almost two years and kept it pretty close to stock with the exception of an SLP LM1 catback. I finally bit the bullit and installed a set of lontubes and an off road x-pipe.........ummmmmm it's really loud. I was expecting the loudness but the raspy tone between...

    Clutch engagement question

    I was told my clutch was replaced around 25K ago, I have to depress the clutch pedal all the way in order to put it into gear but it doesn't engage until close to the top. It almost feels like it doesn't engage until a second after I let my foot off the pedal. It was a factory replacement clutch...

    Wheel hop damage?

    I was driving in the rain the other day and the rear started to spin (had traction control off) as soon as it started spinning it started hopping bad so I immediately let off the gas.

    Thought i screwed something up today, I'm an idiot

    it's been foggy as all get out here in Missouri......I get in my car and hit the traction control button (out of habit) and drive off. I pulld onto a side street and got a little wheel hop, no biggie right? From then on right at 2200rpms I kept hearing some sort of odd buzzing sound coming from...

    3650 aftermarket shifter question

    I got one for christmas and it didn't come with any instructions, a friend of mine told me not to use the shift stops because my 3650 has internal ones and it'll screw something up. Is he correct, I ahve already put 5-600 miles on it and seems fine

    Not quite as stiff as I'd have thought

    I had my MM full length subframes welded in last night, I suppose I'm use to the old 87-93s where you could tell a huge difference after a set. The newer model mustangs must be a little beefier because it didn't make that huge of a difference. Don't get me wrong I can feel it's a little stiffer...

    couple questions

    First, What size are the factory wheels on an 01 cobra (the silver ones with the "svt" cap in the center? my reason for asking is I know a lot of guys run 275s on the rear of these cars and I ran across a steal on a set of 285s. i figured since they're only 10mm wider it shouldn't matter that...
