1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe


This car is a blast to drive but now I
want MORE ponies out of it. It's
powerful yet VERY streetable. The only
real problem I have to say is that it
is undergeared. It needs 4.10's out
back to make ME happy but I don't mind
saving gas for now. 305 horses is fun,
stable as a MoFo in corners, gets the
looks...so what more can u ask
for...except MORE horses!? =) Best of
all, even when it's sitting still
people gaze at it and compliment it
because owning a Cobra is elite.
Everybody and their dog goes and buys a
Z28 so they are not special, there is
just something about Cobras and their
owners. Go get you ANY year Cobra and
you'll see what I mean! =)

Worst Features

4.6 liter mod motors lose a LOT of potential with the baby 3.27 (stock) rearend gears. 4.10's are just right due to the fact the 4.6 DOHC rev out to 7000 redline, pulls and pulls all the way to red and the 4.10's well help utilize all that energy.
