pics of my 95 Cobra and 00 Lightning. The L is stock, the Cobra has a T04 turbo, T56 six speed, and 4.30 FMS gears, otherwise it is stock. Needs some suspension work, wont hook up, best et 13.10 at 109.8 mph. Ran the Lightning last month, three runs, best of 13.76 at 98.7 mph, into a 15mph headwind so probably could have run a .70 at 100.

Cobra pics;

engine


better pic of car


Engine is stock, turbo system from Speed Innovations in Houston, blueprinted T56 from D&D Motorsports, Pro 5.0 shifter,4.30 FMS gears (may be a bit too much for dragracing but sure is fun to drive around, with the second od 72 mph is only 2100 rpm).

As you can see, a lot of cosmetic mods, R hood, R wheels, Ford fender flares, rear valance pan, 96 tail lights and rear bumper cover, svo sidepipe skirts (took the u-turn mufflers off after the turbo) Classic Design side scoops and grille. And the car was originally black.

Next up is suspension work.
