4.6L forged NA car making 441 RWHP
Price: $21,000
Excellent condition. Front bumper has some tape on it but no dents, dings or scratches. I have a brand new replacement bumper. Car is an autocross/track bully! $15k+ in suspension, brakes and chassis upgrades alone. $15k+ in engine as well. Front and rear has fully adjustable suspension, from street to full autocross. Car is super clean. Loaded, everything works. Runs strong.

Has been very tastefully upgraded, not butchered. Tight and done right. Street legal with fresh tags and inspection. 4rd owner

Nice build!....Curious as to how you corrected the front wheel rub with the forward offset control arms?....I'm also interested in possibly buying your car for track use....Thanks, Grant

Thanks!
It’s not just the offset control arms... that add 0.75”, but the K member also adds another 0.75” so totaling 1.5” forward! I was able to minimize the rubbing by trimming the inside of the bumper. It sometimes rubs a little at full lock especially with the coil overs set where they are now.

No damage to the heads that I can remember, only the bent valves. When it happened I removed the whole engine and brought it to my engine builder in Houston for inspection and repair as needed.

Wow, that is one awesome looking '98 Cobra. The mix of white and black really sets it off from others. Stellar mods, too. Someone is going to get a nice weekend driver (at minimum). I wish you the best on a sale!

Gorgeous and I love the engine setup. Impressive numbers... Similar mod list on my '99 (though I am stroked to 5.0L and do not have an FR500 intake), and you have me beat by 40whp!

awesome car! I wish I had the cash. Love the engine setup, would be perfect for mine. Makes me regret selling my dual TB FR500 intake.

good luck with the sale
