Bought the car on vacation in Arizona (99 cobra). soon after purchase the thing overheated on me and the engine tanked. Depending how far down the rabbit hole I go the original purpose was to be a weekend road course car, nothing class competitive just fun. On the weekends I am slowly taking things apart before removing the engine and see exactly what happened.
Currently lurking around viewing intake manifold modification, headers (shorty vs longtubes power advantages unless you do cams etc) Stiffening up the rear diff, and suspension.
Actively looking to buy stuff fyi...
