    Greetings!

    I am technically not new, but I have not been active on these forums since 2009. In 2009 I purchased a 5.0 GT, a 1995. Truth be told the car was a turd and I was much younger and not so well off. Anyway, fast forward to 2014 and I bought another Mustang with only 59,000 miles. This time I got a modular. I got a car that had a lot of the work put into it. Since I am a college student and do not possess the means or time to build something right now. I cheated and bought this 1996 Cobra with some mods.


    • Balanced and blueprinted short block with forged crankshaft.
    • Forged pistons and rods. APR main studs, APR rod bolts, APR head studs
    • Aeromotive fuel rails and pressure regulator. 42 lb. Ford Racing injectors. SCT 2800 MAF, Anderson power pipe, 3.12 pulley.
    • Vortec V Trim Ford Racing headers, full 3 inch exhaust. Fluidyn aluminum radiator, electric fan Flex-a-lite control module.
    • T-45 5-speed transmission with 5.0 short throw shifter.
    • Aluminum driveshaft and Lakewood driveshaft loop.
    • Torsen racing 8.8 rear differential with 3:73 gears and Moser 31s
    • Griggs racing suspension with torque arm and panhard bar. Subframe connectors, tubular k frame and control arms. Koni adjustable coil overs, bump steer kit. Maximum Motorsports camber plates.
    • Saleen big brakes and Saleen calipers. Saleen drilled rotors and braided brake lines.

    It's good to be back, I always wanted another Mustang, took me a few years and saving up very diligently. Part of the reason was help I found here back in 2009. Thanks!

    Awesome! Tastefully modded and low miles are both a win.

    Welcome back, looks like a nice purchase.

    Those pedals are interesting to say the least.

    Not sure if this is the official site or not, but here's some info

    http://fivevalleyfordclub.com/36th_international_mustang_meet


    If you've never been to a IMM they're a blast! Went to the Spokane one and I'll attend the 2016 one in Calgary.

    They're a bit cheesy, they were bought in the 1990s.

    Right on, I will go to this if it's in my town. Very cool, too bad it's so far off.

    I was thinking holy gauges! But with how nice it looks under the hood I would want to be able see all the #s to be sure its all safe. Got any dyno #s or time slips from the former owner?

    I got a dyno from the previous owner, this is a street tune. From what I understand it's very conservative.[​IMG]

    That's 440 HP and 344 TQ.

    The car has moved across the country, I plan on getting it dyno tuned in the Spring. I feel like the TQ is a bit low. This is my first modular.
