After frying my clutch this past weekend I am about to get started with installing a new clutch, flywheel, long tubes, tubular k-member, and coil over kit. I was looking for any advice that anybody had to give about any part of the install. Thanks, Jeff

Wow it sounds like you're about to have some FUN! First I'd suggest:
A pair of hands, plenty of time, a little patience, and some beer (open in case of emergency!)
The install shouldn't be too much of a trouble being your have the tools, the engine supported from above, and a spare set of hands. Are you doing this on a lift with a dolly of sorts? I was lcky enough to do this with my K install and it was very simple.
There are like 8 bolts(?) <2 @ rear on each side, 1 @ each side by coil spring and the motor mount bolts. you'll also need to remove the sway bar mounts 2 bolts @ each side> that really hold the k in place, becareful because while it is not extremely HEAVY, it's very bulky to move around. A cart would be nice, but two guys can manage it out from under the car.
Once the K is out, the headers should be a breeze, but sense I have not done a Cobra, I'll leave this part alone, b/c I think there are more tubes and what not on the 4v than the 2v.
Other than that, I don't know that I've really helped anyway, if you need more input, advice, or just need a break let us knwo whats up! Goodluck!
