2003 Cobra with Mac Headers, VRS Catted X and Borla Stingers
made a quick teaser video of the new set up I have on the car.
Mac Long Tube Headers
VRS Catted X
Maybe its because I haven't driven the car for a while, but personally I think it sounds unbelievably good. By far my favorite Exhaust combo I have had on the car after only a few miles of driving it!! I had a smile ear to ear the whole time!!
03 ported & pullied cobra at the track
This is my very first time down a 1/4 mile track in a car. First run wasn't
on video, which isn't such a bad thing. Just wanted to make an easy pass
before I tried to see what the car could do. I didn't launch hard on any of
the passes, and on the 2nd and 3rd passes I drove the car hard.
1st run (not on video - just feeling the track out and getting a handle on
what I'm doing)
12.33 @ 118.42 mph
2nd run (drove pretty hard after the launch, didn't powershift, cooled the
car down well for this run)
11.90 @ 122.55 mph
3rd run (lots of time to cool the car down, didn't launch hard but drove
hard once I got rolling)
11.61 @ 126.87 mph
I know my launches sucked, I didn't go out to break any records that night
but was happy with everything at the end of the night... first time taking
it to the track - much more fun than on the street.
2003 SVT Cobra with full exhaust on the dyno
The car faced some FRPS and Boost
bypass/solenoid issues on the Dyno, both of which were
troubleshot and solved by Tim Rodeheaver & LaSota Racing. I can't thank
those gentlemen enough for the effort they put in to their clients.

The final Dyno numbers
1996 Cobra - longtubes, offroad x pipe, Flowmasters
A short video of the Exhaust on my
1996 Mustang Cobra after I
got finished installed Flowtech longtube headers.
The remainder of the Exhaust includes
a custom fit Bassani offroad X-pipe, and a Flowmaster catback.
Over time there has been some visitors commenting about the smoky Exhaust claiming worn rings and whatnot. I went
through the engine about 2 years ago and the rings were fine, likely cause
was probably more worn valve seals. Regardless, it's fixed now. I went a
bit wild with it and installed a built engine (forged bottom end, ported
heads, shortrunner intake, etc.), built T56 transmission, 31-spline
rear-end, custom fuel system, 76mm turbocharger, complete Maximum Motorsports front
suspension, etc.. etc..
03 cobra stingers & catted bassani x sounds
Tried to make the video similar to the other one I made last winter to give
the best feeling for the difference in sound.
Best way to describe it is that going from catless to catted has made the
Exhaust note much more quiet and less
aggressive sounding (although still loud - I can now talk on my phone if
the windows are up... sorta lol).
I live in a hilly area, so the drone of the catless was not a welcome
addition to the neighborhood and made me very self conscious when I drove
the car. I do miss the fun factor that driving a stupid loud car brings
I'll probably move on to buying a set of catted longtube headers within the
2003 SVT Cobra Exhaust
This is a quick video i made of my 2003 cobra. It has bbk off road xpipe
and a magnaflow catback. I am soon getting flowmasters. I think there is
also a small Exhaust leak. But enjoy.
And no flaming please.
