    Hello,

    I have a 1996 Cobra that I purchased three years ago from its original owner.
    One of the main reasons I bought this particular Cobra was that it had the SVO
    side exhaust option. According to the original owner, he also purchased this
    particular Cobra off the showroom floor mainly because of the SVO side exhaust.
    He further added that according to the salesman at the dealership, SVO side
    exhaust was a factory installed option only at dealer request. Can anyone verify
    this for me? Are there any Cobra owners that have the SVO side exhaust option
    out there?

    I have also been told that the SVO side exhaust system was an over the parts
    counter purchase only. If this is true, how could my particular Cobra be on the
    showroom floor with the side exhaust system installed?

    I tried to contact the original dealership, but they changed hands several years
    ago and purged all of their old records:mad: I also contacted SVT directly, and
    they told me the SVO side exhaust system was not installed by them. So where
    do I go from here to find the origin of my side exhaust system?

    Finally, I was hoping the original owner could locate his purchase documents and
    original window sticker - but he was not able to.

    It would be great if a member here has the documentation that supports either
    the purchase & installation of the SVO side exhaust option or a window sticker
    identifying it as a factory option.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    Steve

    p.s This is my '96 Cobra

    To the best of my knowledge, the SVO side exhaust was sold over the counter only. I have a couple of old SVO Parts catalogs that show the kit. More than likely, the kit was installed at the dealership before sale in an effort to jazz it up. Obviously, it worked. :D

    Thanks for responding.

    I'd like to see those catelogs:D Are any of them dated for the 1996 model year?

    How about not sweating the small stuff. I wasn't trying to be malicious in any way, just a little harmless ribbing.....which never hurt anybody. Besides, I'm sure it’s not the first time she's heard it. ;)

    1. It may be "small stuff" to you, but to others it may not be.
    2. It is her first post.
    3. She obviously loves the car.
    4. She's a "she", which we have too few of around here as it is.
    5. It was an opinion that nobody asked for and is very subjective.
    6. You're a mod and should know better than to denigrate someone's ride and drive off new board members. See number 1.

    Well, thankfully since I explained in my post above that my comment was meant to be of the non malevolent variety, most of your above points don’t apply. Thanks for chastising me in open forum though, I’m glad to see you’re an unbiased authority on the subject.

    .....on the other hand, I find it pretty interesting you’re calling me out for bad taste when just a couple of days ago you took part in the verbal lashing of some guy wanting to install Lambo doors on his Fox.

    Even though I agree that Lambo doors have no place on a Mustang, looking over his thread posts up to that point I don’t recall him asking for opinions as to whether people liked the idea or not, but you along with others still felt it necessary to berate him for it. Hypocrite much? Need I go back further into your post history in order to find more of the same? Pot, meet kettle!!! :rolleyes:

    However

    .....if the O/P is truly insulted by my remark, she’s more than welcome to bring it to my attention and I’ll be happy to remove and follow it up with an apology. But need I remind people, that this is the internet and everyone’s going to have an opinion, whether you ask for it or not. Don’t take them to seriously and you’ll do fine.

    ....and since I neglected to say it before, welcome to the board foxy2lady :)

    Anyway....will we be getting back on topic anytime soon? Does Cervini's not make a replacement side exhaust cover for the SN95? I'm pretty sure the '95 Cobra R had the same side skirt? :shrug:
