It should be much better, plus less cluttered. It even allows for a GT500 motor to fit into a fox body and those motors are WIDE.... That's the base model, not the show...

If I sell the car it would be for a 2020 GT350 and be extra broke for 6 years.

I've thought about that a few times actually, but then it comes back to if I spend half what I would on a GT350 I would easily have the thing done.... The question is what is more fun, a done to the hilt 1993 Cobra, or a 2020 GT350.

I'm just wondering how worth it it would be to still have a car thats outdated as hell but fun, or something with all the new bells and whistles....

If I could afford that motor I’d be putting it into my Dads 1968 Charger, not my fox body.

Its a hard decision but id say stick with your build. When your done if it doesn't please at least then you can sell it to fund a gt350

Well, I suppose it is time to update the thread for everyone on here....

As most of you are aware of, I decided that I didn't want to do the 427 small block anymore, and that I didn't want to get rid of the car so I am instead doing a coyote swap on the Cobra.

Build is going to consist of a Gen 2 Coyote motor and a T56 Magnum behind it.

I will keep the IRS in the car for sure, and will continue using Maximum Motorsports for the front suspension....

I'm going to update this thread a little more as things progress. As with before it will not happen fast, but I can honestly say I havent been this excited about the car in years so it's definitely going to happen.
