Civic to Cobra ... Good Lord!
Aloha Cobra owners! In the course of the past 2 months I've up and moved across the the country on a whim and after my loyal (although monotonous) Civic blew a head gasket last week, I'm now the proud owner of a Laser Red 2001 Cobra Mustang. Going from driving an automatic, 115hp Civic for 7 years to a a near 350hp manual Cobra .... my goodness! I have a few questions to ask if it's alright. I bought the car at a used dealership with 68k miles for $10k and it has some light mods done to it already (K&N CAI, a very loud cat-less exhaust, and a JLT oil separator) and after bringing it to a well-regarded mechanic in my area, it was given a good bill of health with the only things needing to be done being brake fluid drain/refill and power steering fluid service. My main question is, are there any known problems with this year Cobra that I could avoid with preventative maintenance in this mileage range? I have no intention of making it into a track car or street racing with it, just to maintain and enjoy it for as long as I possibly can. Thanks in advance for any responses.
