Hello all. I've been lurking for awhile while shopping for a V. Finally picked one up. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=011&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=320264663424&rd=1

I love this car! Wish I would have bought one a few years ago instead of waiting. The car already had a K&N Intake on it but I ordered a Magnaflow catback (a day before I bought the car...ha-ha) and really REALLY need a better shifter! In about a month or so I will be looking into a Stealth tune. Been searching for wheels online but it seems the picking is limited and pricey. I dont see myself paying $6k for some 18's or 20's.

dont buy wheels and tires for that kind of money...most people who do road racing i see are using stocks...put that 6-7 g's into a maggie and headers. i will be doing just that with my newly attained 06 platinum (same color as urs) ...heres a wacky story as the ebay describes ur color as "gray" and when i went to reg my car i wrote silver on reg doc. and then the dmv employee scratched out silver and wrote gray...lol good luck with the whip!

Perfect timing for you to get in on Luke's group buy on kooks headers! Give him a call so you can get a set before you send your pcm off to StealthV.



P.S. Black was the fastest color until rlj5 decided to change things...

Thanks for all the greetings guys.. Unless I hit the lotto I won't be dropping that kinda coin on wheels! I'm sure i'll end up putting a Maggie on there. Every car I have ever owned has had either a turbo or supercharger on it ;). Every previous car i've owned has always been black-on-black (ok, except 1) too so I figured it was time to switch it up. Platinum looks great on these V's. Car will be heading to the track before catback goes on if time permits. I always forget to do a baseline run before I start throwing parts on it. I'll prob hold off for a little bit before I get headers or any other power mods. Kinda like to get bored of "stock" first for a change.

Welcome funseeker
I agree to save your money on the wheels and go for some other mods first.
Besides most people forget that the stock wheels, which are Italian made Speedlines are better than most of the aftermarket wheels out there. They retail for over $600 a piece. If they're beat up have them re-done. Seems like you know the drill already since I've never met or raced a "stock" Cobra SVT. Those cars deserve respect and I'm sure you'll like the V coming from a quick car like that. Good luck and remember "it's only money".
