Everyone here has touched on something that I would say except one thing. The Ride Quality. I am running the stock set up except non donor meaning Tubular up front and I have an 8.8 standard rear end with adjustable upper and lowers with Coil overs. Everyone is different and I'm sure someone will point out some day and ask why my cobra sits higher than others? That was one of the things that made it hard to enjoy was worrying about speed bumps pot holes and bumps in general some of witch would have me cringing thinking that I might crack the body someday when the wheels hit the fenders from bumps on the highway. Now that I have installed coil overs the ride is awesome more comfortable and I'm not worrying about every bump. What a Difference!!! I also put on a tire with a taller side wall witch helped as well. My whole point is that that little change made such a big difference in how much I enjoy the car. as said above these cars are the same but never two alike and you have to find that ground in witch it makes you happy. They are money pits and there have been a few times I thought if I just sold the car we would be better off. We have made it through a couple dark times and I am so grateful I never sold it.
