About “slowbra”

My baby here was bought from a guy outside of Raleigh in late 2007. She had only 36,000 miles on it and was garage kept her whole life. The car was initially bone stock other then a 4:56 gears, BBK Intake, and rims. Just a few days after I bought the car the clutch was shredded. lol Ooops.. A swift 2nd 3rd shirtfpassing a buddy was enough to end that stock clutch. Then... It was on...

Mods for “slowbra”

1999 SVT Cobra
-Motor built by fastlane motorsports with all forged internals in prep for a blower.
-ford racing shorty headers
-X-pipe
-flowmaster
-BBK cold air
-Zex nitrous (75-150hp) Got a steal on a pricing error on a website. The price was changed shortly after I placed my order.
-limewire tuner- Birthday present from an X.. Score!
-TKO 500 tranny- T45 is the crap!
-Rear axle swap- IRS is sweet, on the road. Wheel hop became such a problem. I first purchased the Stop the Hop package and it didnt help the issue to my satisfaction. Bought the solid axle out of a junkyard in Athens, Ga for $500. Just swapped some bushings and bearings and slapped her in.
