I currently own a 1996 Cobra, which is stock execpt for flowmaster american thunder exhausts and 3.73 gears. After saving my money (2000) worth, I am at a loss for what to start with for mods. What would my fellow Cobra owners sugest for mods? The primary use of this vehicle is for the street. I appreciate all of your input! Thanks!

i would get an high flow or off/road x/h pipe, and some 4.30's in place of the 3.73s....incredible difference there. after that any of the other bolt ons are good choice...pulleys....aftermarket shifter, some drag radials to hook with the 4.30s (your going to need traction with those gears...and dont worry totaly streetable in a 4v cobra.) hey btw you should still have enough $$$ for a 100 shot...hehe.

1. 4.30 gears (I think everyone on this board agrees this is the best all-around gear for a N/A DOHC). TRUST ME 4.10's aren't enough!

2. WMS Powerpipe, Pro-M MAF, and WMS (S&B) air filter

3. ASP Balancer underdrive pulleys

4. If you want to keep the Flowmasters :rolleyes: :barf: go with an H-pipe. If not, then go either Bassani or Dr. Gas X-pipe and a cat-back with a straight thru muffler design (Borla, Bassani, Magnaflow, DynoMax ultra flow).

5. Steeda Tri-ax shifter

That should about do it for your budget, but that will get you a VERY nice performing street car. ;)

1. Steeda Tri-ax shifter
2. High flow H-pipe
3. 4.10's or 4.30's (if it's a street car and doesn't see the strip much)
4. ASP or Steeda underdrive pulleys
5. UPR, WMS, or Morpheous powerpipe
6. maybe some Nitto Drag radials

That should do you for about 275-285rwhp
