I purchased my 96 cobra with 36000 miles on it in 2003 and have loved every min. What a value. My first mustang was a 2000 GT which I had a blast with but kept looking at the 96- 98 cobra and I had to have one. In my opinion this car has one of the greatest sounding engines of all time. i have done a few mods: 1.lowering springs (a must, stock it looks like a 4X4) 2. caster camber plates (to get correct alignment) 3.mac mufflers. With just a few mods the car looks and sounds great.
Wow...what a bang for the buck..high
performance without breaking the bank.
I love the ride, the sounds and the
acceleration...what a car. Great toy
but not made to be driven in bad
weather, rain or snow.
305 hp..what else do you need to
say..stock it runs the 1/4 miles in
under 14 seconds..tons of after market
stuff is made for this car.
Rides stiff.pre independent suspension
compared to the newer cobras. Still a
great ride...no regrets...:)
we bought this car as a fund car &
investment. The car is only used in the
sumemr and we have enjoyed it a great
deal. The 96 to 98 cobra's have always
had a place in my heart and the car
still tuns heads, even though it is
getting a few years on it.
the staged valve opening at around 3200
rpm - produces a supercharger type
effect without the blower.
none, althoug if additional performance
is wanted - i woudl suggest changing the
rear end gears to 3.73, upgrading the
shifter to a short throw option,
replacing the cat back system & H pipe,
and of course, a blower if you are up
for the cost of it.
