Hey guys. I've been lurking on here for awhile and thought i would post up my build and maybe it will help someone out with their project. I picked up a twin turbo 03 cobra almost a year ago. It has a bunch of good parts in it with about 1500 miles on the build. Long story short the quality of the build and some of the workmanship wasn't up to my standard so I've decided to fix it.

Here is a quick run down on the car and what I'm doing to it:

03 cobra 30K miles.
teksid block
manley i beam rods
Cp pistons
Factory crank
arp hardware
todd warren cams
ID1300's
Sullivan intake
fore dual 465's
HP performance turbo kit with billet wheel 62/62 precisions
FTBR irs with trutrac and DSS axels

Welcome to the forum!
Looks like it's going to be a great build. Are you doing the work yourself?

Any details on the Dodge Dart(?) in the last photo.

Picked up a TIG, figure this is a good project to learn on.

FRONT END BUILD

Using MAF racing tubular radiator and bumper support. Made some modification to these, but nice pieces to start with. Also using their lower radiator mounts. Putting these on the front side puts the radiator all the way flush with the front of the core support.

HOTSIDE:
CG FAB forward facing headers. These are the ones that let you keep the A/C power steering and sway bar. It requires the timing cover pictured below to work though.

2" sch40 up pipes. Ended up making a few version of these before being happy with the final product.

Impressive work. I'm guessing you've done something like this once or twice before?

It's good to see the IRS and 6 speed remain.
