Default ErikHPR's 1997 Cobra

1997 Mustang Cobra
Pacific Green Convertable


I found this car on eBay and when the auction ended, the car didn't sell. I emailed the seller since he was local and got he car way under reserve. Two years ago the motor suffered a catastrophic failure and I've been accumulating parts and modding it as I go. It WILL return this spring as a very different animal than it started out as.

•Tekisid block bored .020 over
•Manley rods
•Manley pistons
•Kellogg crankshaft

•BBK off road H pipe
•Borla side exit

Suspension
•UPR K member
•UPR coil overs with 12-250 springs
•UPR CC Plates
•Steeda rear control arms
•Wolfe Racecraft thru the floor sub frames
•Strange 10 way adjustable struts

Wheels
•Black staggered 03 cobras

Transmission
•T45 rebuilt with Hanlon Motorsports rebuild kit and shift forks
•Pro 5.0 shifter
•Spec billet steel flywheel
•Spec 2+ clutch

Rear End
•4.10 gears
•Strange 31 spline axles
•Cobra diff
•Granatelli diff cover

Power Adders

•Vortech S Trim custom 8 rib with FMIC 16psi



Fuel system
•Custom fuel system with A1000 pump

Car currently makes 521/444

Awesome! Almost the exact same motor I went with...stock HCI, Teksid block, manley rods and flat top pistons, but a stock crank. Can't wait to see how your car does!

Since the car has come back to life it's time to refine some things before final tuning

Revised intake tubing


8 rib setup


Still needs some transmission work a built rear and a cage
