I raced a 95 cobra the other night and he had my bpu 1j by about a car or so (we only raced thru 1st and 2nd). My question, since I'm not familiar w/ them at all, is what can you do to a cobra for that speed range. 95 was the last yr for the 5.0, right? This car was extremely loud (read bad ass lol) and had one helluva cam in there, it barely idled. Besides the usual cams, exhaust, intake, ignition, what can you do?

this one of the worst question ever...

the answer - ummm anything?? s/c, turbo, built engine, engine swap, camel powered, hydro electric, immigrants.

the 95's still had the old style 5.0's. There are about 8 zillion parts available.

yeah, you can buy ANYTHING for a mustang through
summitt and all those other domestic sellers.

as a rule, i usually dont mess with LS1s,
OLD Muscle cars or beefed up "stangs'" because

the LS1 just needs a stall and drags and it will FLY (automatic)
you NEVER know what old muscle cars have,
and there are TONS of options for mustang owners, all they have to do is grab a catalog and order...

sorry i can't help with specifics... seem like alot of them
bolt everything they can on and then spray like100 shot, and
it's usually lights out for "normal" cars.

If a 1JZ with BPU mods ran close to a 1995 Cobra, the Cobra had nothing more than bolt-ons and a cam. Period.

for all those interested, I talked to the dude, here's what he's got:

an 8.5:1 compression forged 331
ported aluminum heads
ported intake
a blower cam.
All i need now is the blower and a built rear.
