Remember that you can install an Explorer intake for roughly the same performance.

What do you think a Cobra upper and lower intake is worth nowadays?

Really depends. There’s a whole group on FB that collects these things now. Some lower intakes (F3, F4 and F5) are worth more than others (F8-BA and -BB).

I’ve seen em in the $500-1200 range depending on part numbers and condition.

I paid $650 for the Cobra manifold in 2020 (upper and lower) in structurally excellent condition but dirty. I paid another $120 for a guy to vapor hone it inside and out, and like $25ish for high temp engine primer and fancy aluminum-look top coat. And because of bling a touch-up pen of Iris Metallic paint to make the words match the car.

For me this was a good value and I'd do it the same way again. If absolute performance was more important than OE-like fit I think the edelbrock and trick flow manifolds likely flow even better.

Right now as I type this there's a really clean looking 94/95 real Cobra upper/lower on ebay for $745 "buy it now" and a clean looking upper only (BYO explorer lower) for $478 "buy it now" . If you're in Austria I'm sure you know better than anyone the expense in getting something to Europe from the states.

I sold mine for 800 just recently so that’s not a bad price .

I sold a cobra upper and lower with a mystery 75mm throttle body for 560 shipped last year. It sold in less than a day with out any offer to go lower. So that will tell you something..
