Default Picked up a New Ride....PICS

So it's been about 2 years since I sold my Z06, went looking for a low mileage WS6 and ended up in a low mileage '04 Cobra...Picked this car up in West Virginia last week...has the usual bolt-ons, 6# lower pulley, Bassani Exh, C&L cold air, Accufab TB, Kenny Brown Suspension, came with a dyno sheet that says it makes 466rwhp....I wanna get the Hellion single turbo kit in a couple months , any good shops in Houston for Fords?

thanks for all the positive comments guys! I really wanted a coupe but this car was so clean with the miles I wanted and the price range I was looking at, I couldn't pass it up!

my last couple sports cars have all been GM: 01 Z06, 02 Z28, 01 Formula, 02 TA...I will always love Fbodys but the torque this Ford makes off idle is ADDICTIVE

Yah I kinda wanted a change too and the 03-04 cobras are definitely the best alternative to the Fbodies, power wise the cars are ridiculous... 500rwhp is easily attainable on the stock blower, and I can't get over how bad *** the eaton sounds when you get into the boost....the only thing that sucks is the shifter position, but it's not too bad.

If you make the switch take your time to find one that wasn't abused. You won't regret it!

Despite their prevalence in LSX circles, LMR has actually done a good number of very cool Mustangs. Check them out, can't beat the work or tune quality.
