this right here for sureIf I had any regrets about mods I've done, the CAI would be right up there. It changes the sound the car makes a teensy bit, but adds no more power than a K&N filter could do on its own. Gears and a tune are such a better choice. If it were me, doing mods again for the first time, and my budget was $1000 (figuring you're still doing wheels/tires and exhaust), I'd do gears, tuner, Ford C springs and Maximum Motorsports subframe connectors. The car will be completely transformed.
That is suprising to hear that. The Cobra R brakes were designed to work with the stock rear brakes. The only difference between the cobra rear brakes and the GT rear brakes is the rotor thickness. Its the same caliper.Got the Cobra R Brembos for myself for my birthday last year. God damn are they nice. They **** up the brake balance like crazy, but you have a Cobra, so maybe not so much for you.
Well call me stupid and color me dumb, I had no idea there was a rotor size difference. Just looked it up and sure enough. I guess that extra braking torque sure helps. HARotors are 2 inches larger too, which helps.
not true LMR sells DEPO lights have had them in my car for a few years now still look greatWhatever you do, don't make the mistake of buying non-Ford headlights. Did that on my 98 and I regret it everyday. All the OEM replacement ones are junk.
Good call. I'm too far gone at this point for that to be a move I would want to make...update:
I made the fatal mistake while mulling over options for the 04.... of test driving a 2016 gt prem.
All planned money for the 04 has now been dumped into the may-july new pony fund.
I suppose when the time comes I'm gonna have to change my username to the orange pony ><
Yeah, the reality is the current 04 is high mileage(ish). Nothing insane but I'm approaching 150k on factory everything. I love it to death but practically, the amount of money I would have to spend to even begin to touch the motor performance of the coyote's(and that 6th gear) isn't as worth it as I had originally thought.Good call. I'm too far gone at this point for that to be a move I would want to make...
Agreed.Whatever you do, don't make the mistake of buying non-Ford headlights. Did that on my 98 and I regret it everyday. All the OEM replacement ones are junk.
It doesn't owe me anything. Bought it 7 years ago with 50-60k on it.On a car with that many miles and needing body work I wouldnt put a dime in it. Its past the point of needing to replace lots of things. Put the money towards a newer one.
Im sure at this point the suspension is shot. Front/rear control arms, bushings, shocks, struts, springs, ball joints, clutch.It doesn't owe me anything.

Are you self employed? Personally I dont understand how the hell the government gets away with charging people after they are already taxed, if they have a standard job. It makes me sick to hear what some of my friends have to pay. If your not self employed make sure you claim single and zero on your w-4. That should mitigate most risk of having to pay anything. I claim single/zero on my w-4, as well as my wife and we always get back 5k+. Now that we have a little girl the amount rose another couple grand.I dont file to the last minute since i always owe thousands.
