    Nice to be on this forum, thought I would document my build on my 98 GT. This is my 4th SN95. I was convinced I wanted a Cobra so, my last car was a 99 Cobra and I really hated that car. All my other stangs were 2 valves and loved them. The cobra sounded nice and looked nice, but the powerband was too hard to get used too. No low end torque and the damn valve guides were shot so it smoked on startup. How embarrassing, lol! I was going to drop 8 grand and do a full forged rebuild but realized the car was just not worth that kind of money put into it. My old pi swapped 97 felt way faster. Anyways picked up a super clean 98 GT with 140k that I love. Car just needs the pi heads to make me satisfied, cause it lacks power up top. Right now I have o/r h pipe to magnaflows, c&l plenum to bbk 70mm throttle body, k&n cold air intake, heavy duty clutch/flywheel, 3.90 gears with 305 nitto drag radials in back. I pieced together my pi parts over the last month ang installing them this weekend, so I'm excited
