Hey guys, new to the forums. Matt told me about it from the streetfire forums. Ive been lookin at all of your rides and I like them. I just got my 1998 Black Cobra, its all stock w/ 87k miles on it. Right now it looks like its ready for a little off roading but that will all change soon enough, after I pay the monthly bill to my dad for it :-\. Ive owned the car for roughly 2.5 weeks and I love driving it. This is the first car that ive ever drivin/owned with a manual but ive gotten it down pretty good imo. Ive missed the 2nd to 3rd gear shift a few times when im gettin on it but im gettin better at it. She's realllllly fun to drive, idk which is more fun, washing it or driving it.. i love messing with it though. I dont plan on doing any serious mods for a while, right now i just want some basic things. Wheels, exhaust, lowering, 281 spoiler maybe, cobra R hood, basic bolt on engine parts, suspension upgrades. I have a couple questions for you guys though regarding some parts that I want, mostly your opinions.. - For the wheels, i love the Ford Racing 1995 cobra R's (chrome) but I want them in 18's. Can i get them made in 18's or do I need to buy a different brand? If i need to buy a different brand, can anyone give me a good brand/dealer/website? - The exhaust - Im planning on an xpipe w/ flowmasters 40 series mufflers. I was wondering what you guys think, xpipe or hpipe, cats or no cats (i can get by emissions so the cats arent a problem). i hear that xpipes will give you better performance and also a throatier sound whereas the hpipes give you the more "popping" sound and not as great performance.. now, i dont want to purchase a 500 $ xpipe. because im a 17y/o paying a 260 dollar payment everymonth, so it needs to be cheap... i found a bassani xhaust xpipe w/o cats, stainless steel, for 250 on 50resto.com. Also, I want 40 series flowmaster mufflers. which should I get, the original 40 series mufflers, the delta force mufflers, or the super 40's? i want my exhaust loud, I just dont know which of these will sound the best.. I know these questions my be a little in depth but im about to purchase these items and I need to know which i should purchase.. Thanks guys for all the help. looks to be a great forum, i will be on here everyday so i look forward to reading what you all have to say. Now, heres the link to my 1998 Cobra . Hope you guys like it.
