I just bought a 1999 Cobra SVT on Ebay. Only 26k original miles, for $15k. Car was kept immaculate by the ORIGINAL owner. Can't help but feel like a got the best car deal of my life-- especially with the new car prices what they are. I don't think I can buy a Festiva for $15k....

Here are the mods i came with:
K&N cold air induction
Chrome Cobra R wheels- these are so sweet!
Nitto tires
Tri-ax shift kit
4:10 gears
x-pipe exhaust
Ford Motorsports racing pulleys

This car is a bad mambajamba. I love it!
I haven't really let it all go yet, but I'm working up to it.
There's a drag track a couple of hours from here, and I plan
to go out there to race my buddie's Dodge Magnum SRT-8.
Think it'll be close, but I should pull it out. We'll see.....
Any ideas on what et I can get??

Any input showing your times and upgrades will help. And maybe a list of the cars you've smoked would be sweet.

Congratulations... You already have most of the best mods. Check to see if it has an aftermarket torque brace and IRS bushings. If not, you'll want them. If you add the brace & bushings, you will want to do the springs, shocks and struts at the same time. I see you have gears, so you either have a speedcal or a chip. If you have a chip, check to see if it's programmable. If it's programmable, you may want to have a custom dyno tune before you do the other mods I mentioned. Only thing left after that is boost and/or going inside the motor.
