1996 FORD MUSTANG SVT COBRA

A few years ago we had the opportunity to go out for a ride in one very wicked 1996 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra thanks to our good friend Blake Biddar. And what a wild ride it was! This pony was fully tricked out and balls out fast, loud  and mean!

Blake put quite a few and mightily impressive modifications on this baby and it would take a whole page to list them all so we will highlight a few of them here:

IMRC Delete Kit
18” White Saleen Wheels
Single Deck Saleen Wing
Eibach Sport Line Shocks, Springs, and Sway Bars
One Piece Black Headlights
Flowmaster X-Pipe, Dual Chamber Exhaust
K&N Filter and Intake

As a little background for some of you that may not be familiar with this model – for 1996, Ford finally did away with the aging 5.0 liter V8 in the Mustang, replacing it with a new aluminum 4.6 liter, DOHC, “modular” unit that was smoother and had slightly better fuel economy. This engine produced 305 hp (227 kW) and 300 lbf·ft (410 N·m) of torque, making the new Cobra capable of 0-60 in 5.0 and a 13.5 second quarter miles. Early models were backed by the Borg Warner T-45 5-speed manual transmission. Late in 1998, Tremec bought production rights for the T-45, although it remained unchanged in terms of strength.

Blake sold this gorgeous Mustang and is moving on to some new awesome projects (maybe even a Ford truck!) So thanks for reading this and keep an eye out for what Blake builds next!
