5000 in upgrades?? im guessing you pay someone to do installs bc and exhaust and pully should be under a grand.

also those mickeys? i have a buddy with those on his 86 5.0 lx and they are bad ass, way better then the BFG drag radials he had before.

you obviously dont know me..I'm Dutch..we are cheap bastards..lol

you cant get any of those parts any cheaper anywhere..trust me

$500 for the tune includes over 6 hrs of dyno tuning
Bassani makes the best stainless steel x-pipes on the market
The Magnaflow is a stainless steel complete cat back
MGW makes one of the best short throw shifter's on the market

again I would rather pay more for quality parts then lots of the cheap ass
Mustang parts on the market. I dont cheap out on parts.

tune is understandable but everything else is rediculous. my stainless magnaflow cat back cost 435 bucks and i thought i overpaid. a k&n shouldnt cost over 75 bucks, and that shifter you linked me to was 179 dollars, not 250

you do know I live in Canada right?
what car do you drive...the cat back for a Cobra has to go over the IRS...this isnt just some random cat bacK system..

http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/shopexd.asp?zone=American&id=279

price shows $698.61 now...but 2 years ago it was $799.00us
plus exchange was $911.00 cdn + 15% tax + $50.00 shipping
=$1097.00

that shifter came out of georgia

$179.00 + $25.00US shipping
$204.00us converted to CDN
204.00 USD = 232.799 CAD as of today..the exchange was worse 2 years ago
plus $15.00 at the border to cover taxes and duty...

The filter was $90.00 as its a 12" open end cone and the
billet aluminum bracket to hold it to the intake was $60.00
you can see it in the picture.

I have all my receipts and all my numbers add up roughly

Do it for me.
Actually the Cobra IRS isn't very good and the solid axle actually handles better, that's the reason the Cobra R is a solid axle.
What? Cobra and Cobra R have IRS, and they definitely handle better than the solid axle 'Stangs. I drove an '04 Cobra, and it tracked much nicer, launched better than the Mach 1 I'd been in. None of the sway over bumps during cornering either.

Great car...I assume its a M/T. If so, wouldnt it be a detriment for drag racing? I always felt a drag car that can run 12 seconds or less should be an automatic.

Then again, my knowledge is from F-bodies.

There are 9 second manual F-Bodies out there. Rare but they do exist. Properly prepped and driven it can be just as fast as an automatic ;).

not yet...but as it gets quicker you are correct...
but I didnt buy the car to make it a drag car or I would have bought the coupe, not the vert.
I already run into safety regulation problems at some tracks for not having a cage in the car (11.99 or lower)
for me its a show and go car..I do several car shows a year too and some times do very well in my class.
Thanks for the compliments guys....:D
