    Figured I'd start one for myself. Got some parts I'm going to install this week so I'll post some pics when I do the swaps. Car is a 1996 Cobra I got 2 months ago. Currently has BBK Its, flows dumped, BBK H (swapped out for an X), MGW shifter (was pro 5.0) H&R sport springs, MM caster plates, C&L intake, gears?, axles?, quadrant & firewall adj

    Things I did myself are the intake, shifter swap and midpipe swap. Axles and gears not sure have to visually check myself.

    Parts I'm going to install this weekend are as follows.

    Magnaflow street Catback
    MM steering shaft
    MM alum rack bushings
    MM heavy duty control arms
    MM clutch cable,quad,adj kit
    Prothane endlinks & swaybars bushings
    LED instrument light kit
    SR spring isolators (front & back)

    Iso's are due to the stockers dry rotting and clutch cable is hopefully going to help my stiff pedal.

    Hopes for the car is to be a good DD that can also handle for auto x and occasional drag days.

    Nice looking cobra bro. And also a nice list of mods/future mods.

    Nice Cobra. White is a great color on our cars. I’m interested to hear how you like the MM clutch quadrant kit as I’m wanting to buy and install one on my car before spring. Looking forward to following your build thread.

    Starting the parts install today. Wish my MM clutch kit was here so I don't have to get on my back again. Did see that my clutch cable was "Made in Taiwan" assuming a eBay or AutoZone replacement. e7149279ef4b183844987675f0dcedce.jpg dbf1e3e2d4e2a19e07982e2e13c38158.jpg be7dd9bf7a5f036def77ba341b18973b.jpg ab2ad891b11a4b2ce261c2f318e40c2e.jpg 28e3665d15461388f55fd8d6f9ba4550.jpg
    Endlinks and swaybar bushing will be replaced. Probably wait until I get my LCAs to do my iso's. Working on the MM rack bushings now and steering shaft.

    Got the rack bushings and shaft in. Exhaust was a pain in the a** getting it lined up. Got 2 clamps on the way to button it up Sunday. Doing this outside and it down pouring is not fun. bacfccd64476d67e0239b4c25c259644.jpg 26875643845091ff5eb9ec64f7e80411.jpg 56300516b65a27dea044191cf8ed4bc9.jpg bc44d470269bdf1f0649c7170cc09598.jpg e15389e78808b64dd1ed7e8300ee0ec4.jpg 7533b9897b5287a806824864153601b6.jpg 4192fb6082736e3d35261c703f7a62e9.jpg

    Looks good. Does the LED cluster lighting have any glare at night (i.e. hot spots)?

    Installed my LCAs today and wow what a pain in the ass. Iso's that's were in were prob from 96 and were shit. Didn't think the grease was gonna be sticky as heck still got it all over me. Couldn't get the bracket for ABS flipped on swaaybar so I just bent the little lip back hopefully that's not an issue. Tried for an hour to get the cable off but no luck. Anyways also switched back to my h pipe because the x was for the new edge and wouldn't line up and was causing leaks. bb06fc281df1805a8bb4c6e1aacab253.jpg 6c69ed37e00d1e44c6630400370a43c4.jpg 47b939dfd60295e12edc5ddf96bd3518.jpg b3d71ac81fe72b7d16f006c24d50bebc.jpg c570bf29e2503b301205e59831dfea10.jpg 9ae7774ae5aa1596d350a2803ddb110f.jpg

    Installed clutch cable kit today. Notice oil in and around my clutch fork and such. Looks like prev owner instralled a clutch what says made in Korea. Any ideas? Also clutch quadrant and adjuster is steeda which is nice to know. Thought it was some eBay junk after I seen the taiwan cable. Clutch pedal isn't stiff anymore but it is "springy and releases quick" steeda quadrant adj is for sale haha 917c02ca75d5b4a927c73efa88a6b5dc.jpg b320341d13eeef0bed0e0a719ca157fc.jpg f3efae82996f52d3178df7abecc3d7ea.jpg a39b474269e2fe8382e250067b7838a8.jpg cba5fab93b3f497990f7fcf44d728e43.jpg

    Glad you swapped that cable. Those old Steeda cables were very prone to snapping. Didn't know they were made in Taiwan though.
    Your pressure plate says "Made in Korea" on it?

    Yeah and my fork is Ford but has a black piece inside of it. Only seen ones without it. Doesn't make the clutch cable and sit In the fork very well
