Not a lot really,

Swap out the hub/control arm setup.

Swap out the Drum brake line for a disk brakeline (25.00 ea from autozone)

Swap out your e brake cable and or leave it unhooked. (I got mine at Napa last time)

All and all as long as you don't have any lock up bolts it's 3 bolts and about an hour each side.

I'm charging $75.00 each side, that comes with the Hub's, Rotors, calipers, Control Arms, brackets, and the three bolts each side.

You would need to get the brake lines and e brake cable.

That sucks. I hate to toss parts that I KNOW someone will need at some point in time.

At this point I have a ton of good parts I'm about to start cutting up for scrap.

That 1997 Cobra engine block I have, no one wants it along with a crap load of other stuff.

I agree. I have held on to parts for years that eventually someone wants.

Gary, where you in Huntsville a few years ago?

If so, I may have met you at Trackmasters at a RocketCityMustangClub Dyno tune. I was there to get some numbers on my silver Tbird.

Yeah, That was me. I remember you getting your T-bird dynoed. 240'ish IIRC. I'm over in Germany now, Miss the RCMC club.

Hope they are treating you well over there. I remember you trying to get your Cobra dialed in.

Welcome to Tccoa.
Life is good. The cobra is more of a weekend/sunny day car now. I've only driven it about 6 times since I returned in Nov. Finally got a custom tune for it, much better driveability and response. The wider front track and IRS really seem to enjoy some of the country backroads.
