    I upgraded the fronts way back in 2006 when my factory brakes wore out, but I didn't get the rears until a few days ago. The Cobra brakes are one of my favorite mods, and they certainly win the "bang-for-the-buck" award (if you buy used like we did). I stripped and repainted the calipers so everything looks brand new. I'll try to remember to snap a few photos when I head up to the shop.

    If you see another set for that price, let me know!!! haha, I've wanted a set for a long time, but can't justify spending $500-$600+ just for the fronts.

    I saw a set a few months back; all 4 corners, <10k miles on them, and included the springs, shocks, struts, and front control arms.....for $250. I saw that post like 30 minutes after he put it up, called him immediately, and he said they were already sold. I told him that with a price like that, that's what I'd expect.

    I tried piecing together a kit via reman parts and whatnot a while back, but had trouble finding the mounting brackets. I now have a lead on how to get them without paying and arm and a leg. If it works out, it'll be a complete front kit (calipers, high quality rotors and pads, mounting brackets/hardware, and stainless lines) for around $300. If it works out, I'll definitely post up about it.

    Looking good! I would have thrown a set of turbo cams on that sucker while it is apart since you are already out of the stock motor class, but eitherway, looks awesome!

    Naw, I really want to see how far I can take the stock cams before spending another $500-600 on cams, springs and all the other stuff needed.

    BTW few more pics

    Just spent the last 30 minutes reading through the thread, impressive build man! I havent really looked at turbocharged 4.6's on the forums so yours got my attention. Too bad about the oil pump failing on you but for 130k somethings gotta give lol.This past Friday at the track at HRP there was a black 2v running a turbo setup and damn it was fast! It was running low 11's, thing sounded like a jet on takeoff lol.

    Looks great Tank! One word of caution: don't let that blue tape cover the intake ports and coolant passages for too long, as it will become very difficult to remove. Ask me how I know...:nonono:
