    Best thing I can tell you to do is Google 99 cobra, thats where I got a LOT of info on them before I got mine. The biggest issue is to make sure the car has had the FIX from the factory. Meaning its got the correct HP and TQ output that it is suppose to have. Most of the 99's were DOWN on power due to a combination of errors from the factory.

    Well I called about mine ( to ford ) my local dealer looked it up on the computer to see when and where it was done. I know you could call the SVT number too if its still in operation. Besides that I know something about a paint mark on the alternator or something like that :-\. There was a exhaust issue / computer issue / intake issue and I think one other thing that had to be fixed to give the correct hp and tq output.
