You'll need a 99/01 or 03/04 Cobra bumper. The 99/01 bumpers are rare and you should expect to pay $450+ to get one. The 03/04 bumpers are common and you can get them for like $250. Stock fenders and hood should be fine with the new bumper.

99-01 looks better IMO. Gives more of a mean look when you throw the chin spoiler on

his car is a beast... converted to a 99 Cobra IRS, v6 with a m112, and last i heard was undergoing a cobra 4v swap :)
Can't go wrong with the Cobra IRS (though 03/04 is better), or a 4v swap. Know if he's going with a termi engine or 99/01?

Either way he may have convinced me to switch up to 99/01. My 03/04 is in pretty rough shape.

im pretty sure he is going termi engine... even if he went 99/01 gobra engine he already has the mm12, just would need to score other parts

It is a biiig leap from 99/01 to put the Eaton swap on it. I've been following them for about a year now.

I'm going to have to contact him to compare notes, especially if he gets a 99/01. I've got an 03 longblock and an Eaton swap kit, and it looks to be hell to put together, particularly the vacuum tree and wiring.

I might also see where he got his bumper. Though I have a feeling there's got to be some 99/01 guys looking for an 03/04 bumper out there, and a trade would work great.

...all assuming I don't swap on a stock V6 bumper front and back for awhile to give people a nasty surprise...:cool:

IMO the termi bumper only looks good with a heat exchanger or intercooler because the gap is so big. And it looks best with termi skirts.

Chaoticdismays car is now na and he is accumulating parts for the 4v swap. I'm also pretty sure he sold the whole m112 kit.
