While he was losing the IRS, Bobby gained some Metco Motorsports aluminum rear suspension bars, Metco's double adjustable upper and solid lower aluminum control arms, Bilstein shocks and Eibach Sportline springs. The swap mandated Harris install a traditional set of "over-the-axle" exhaust pipes. Last time we looked, he was still riding on the stock Cobra disc brakes and 17 x 9-inch chromed Cobra wheels with 275/40R17 Mickey Thompson drag radials in the rear and Goodyear 275/45R17 in the front.

The interior of this insanely powerful Mustang with the "look at me" paint is surprisingly close to stock. Changes include a couple of Auto Meter Lunar gauges for monitoring boost and fuel pressure, plus a UPR chrome interior trim package and a Reichard Racing pistol-grip shift handle.

"Someday I might want to add some racing seats and harnesses," Bobby told us, "but for now the interior suits me fine."

If only he could be so content with the engine mods. Last we heard, Bobby was talking with Harris Racing about plans to upgrade the 4.6-liter's internals, add nitrous, go with different camshaft profiles and perform some head work. The next time we get passed on I-485 by this flamed Cobra, we expect it will be putting out close to 900 horsepower!
