Add-on/in Journal

1 FEB 02: Just had the Sony CDX-CA850X Head Unit installed. It's amazing what a new head unit will do for a system!

23 APR 02: Ok, I've add 2 - 10" Bazooka subs, the Bazooka EL1500 600watt amp, with Monster Cables. All in custom enclosures. (I know they're not the best, but I couldn't beat the price...just temp and besides, they still kick hard)

24 JUN 02: The Altezza G1 Chrome Taillights are installed. Running Straight Pipes - Exhaust. Finally, the Bilstein Shocks, Struts have arrived. Should be installed by this weekend..Hopefully.

7 July 02: The Bilstein Shocks/Struts have been installed. Only took my boy and I 2 hours. Not bad for a first timer. There is a 200% improvement in the ride. Well worth the $500.

1 Sept 02: Put my pony back onto the grill mount. Also, installed lights behind each hood scoop.

5 OCT 02: Magnapack catback system has arrived, will be installing it early next week. I'll let you all know how it sounds and tell you if there's a SOTP difference. I'm also gonna try to get some updated pix.

8 OCT 02: Installed the Magnapack CatBack system...OMG, what a difference. The torque increase is awesome. Well made system. Only took me three hours to install. Sounds good. Not as loud as my straight pipes, but it does sound good.

---------On to the Pictures----------

Right after I bought my car. August 2001

See the Dual Ram Air? Pain in the Arse to route that. 5" duct all the way through to the K&N airfilter. If you can't see it, I ran it from the stock foglight openings to the airfilter.

Well, it happened. Death of the Cobra
Because of some A$$hole that cut across 4 lanes of heavy traffic IN SNOW causing a 6+ vehicle(some just drove away) wreck, my Cobra is no more.
Declared Totaled. At least my insurance company paid me $3K over what I owed(which is also about what the car was really worth on the market).
