Turbo set up for a 98 Cobra

Could I install a Turbo kit for a 03-04 Cobra in a 98 Cobra?

The kit comes w/Dual 4 into 1 Tubular Mild Steel Headers w/ 15/8" primaries, 1/2" Laser Cut Header Flanges, 2 ½" Cross Over w/ HD Reinforced Flex Connection, 3 ½" Down Pipe that splits into Dual 2 1/2" ( Trademark ) to Long Tube H-Pipe, Powder Coated Inlet Tubes, All V Band Connections, Thermal Turbo Blanket & Thermal Tube Blankets, High Quality Silicone hoses w/ Aircraft Grade SS clamps, Turbosmart 38mm Billet Wastegate, Greddy "Type RS" By-Pass valve,the D & D k-member and A-arms, also the 2 fans come with the kit. This kit has the intake that sits where the supercharger went.

Thks Guys
Any suggestion will be appreciate

Im guessing that the intake wont fit, and the inlet pipe angle will have to be modified . Also, you may want to check if the turbo has a support bracket that attaches to the timing cover since the timing covers are different. Depending on the location of the turbo, the upper radiator hose and crossover tube maybe an issue. Everything else should be fine.

The build is posted on turbomustangs.com

If I were to do it again with what I know now I would install a tubular k-member and run the 3" pipe from the headers to the turbo and the 3" downpipe through the k-member. Ground clearance isnt bad with my current setup but the more I look at my car, the more I want to lower it an inch or two to close the fender gaps.
