    the IRS will be pulled tomorrow, Full Tilt Boogie Bushing kit will go in, FRPP diff cover, and coilovers should be in by thursday.

    Valve covers are at powder coat and side skirts are at paint.

    yep!!! the cobra had 34k miles on it so cleaning is very easy, my car was pretty easy too...the swap is TEDIOUS but pretty easy if you have knowledge of the wiring..

    Always loved the look of your car, just curious but with the cost of your V6 and all the other parts, how much $ are you into this project VS just buying a cobra from the get go? Either way, looking good, hope nothing happens to halt your progress any further:beer:

    You should put the V6 back in the donor car and sell if off cheap and recoup some funds that way. GL
