my friend has an 88 mustang 5.0 lx with cold air intake, bbk headers, mac h pipe, mac pro dumps, 373 gears...and he has a cobra intake manifold...it brought him down from 13.7s to 12.9s...the intake manifold was from a 5.0 cobra...i guess it bolts right on...but my question is...would a 1996 cobra intake manifold fit on my 1996 gt? and would i get that much of a gain as well? thanks

1996GT's have 2 valve heads with single overhead cams...1996 Cobras have 4 valve heads with dual overhead cams...

And like Code said nope, it doesn't work...

so then what about the 5.0? were those the only ones that bolted on perfectly...meaning the 5.0 cobra intake manifold to the 5.0 lx?

Both 5.0 motors are pushrods. As missouri guy stated above, the cobra motor is a 4V and the GT is a 2V. 2 totally different beasts......
