1993 Cobra Performance Parts

The 93 Cobra got a nice boost in horsepower and performance thanks to some very unique performance mods. Below are some of the most notable performance enhancements the 1993 SVT Cobra received. Many of these parts are no longer available but in many cases similar performance modifications are still available.

  • Use of GT-40 cylinder heads for increased power:
    • 1.84”/1.54” Valves (intake/exhaust)
    • Crane 1.72:1 roller rockers
  • More aggressive camshaft compared to GT/LX 5.0L
  • Cobra specific intake manifold (upper and lower)
    • Discontinued By Ford Racing
    • Featured Larger Diameter Runners
  • 65mm Throttle Body
  • 70mm mass air meter
  • 24 lb/hr fuel injectors
  • Smaller crank pulley (12% reduction)

1993 Cobra Wheels

The 93 Cobra had a very distinctive set of wheels. They featured unique direction wheels that measured 17”x7.5” and were wrapped in Goodyear Eagle 245/45/17 tires. At the time they were the widest tires to grace the Fox Body Mustang from the factory. Each wheel featured a build date stamped in it for authenticity!

1993 Cobra Drivetrain

The 1993 SVT Cobra featured an upgraded T-5 transmission that featured stronger gears and bearings. It came equipped with a Ford factory short throw shifter and what might be the best clutch to ever grace a Fox Body Mustang! The 8.8 rear end featured 3.08:1 rear end gears and allowed for the Cobra to get gas mileage that was identical to the GT model even with the performance mods. Most Cobra owners upgraded a more performance oriented 3.73 rear end gears.

1993 Cobra Brake Parts

The 4 lug front and rear disc brake set up on the 1993 Cobra was the one of the most coveted performance enhancement that made it to the top tier Fox Body. It drastically improved the braking performance over the rear drum brake setup found on all non-Cobra models. Many of the 93 Cobra brake components are still available. There are also rear disc brake conversion kits and even 5 lug disc brake conversion kits to help any Fox Body Mustangs looking to boost their stopping power.

1993 Interior Upgrades

The interior on the 93 Cobra was an exact carry over from the 1993 GT model. The only interior upgrade was the included “COBRA” floor mats. While the Ford originals have been discontinued for some time now, we still offer plenty for Cobra Floor Mats to dress up any Fox Body Mustang!

If you've always wanted a '93 Cobra, but just haven't been able to find the one you've been dreaming about, you can create your own with the help of our '93 Cobra-style body kit. These kits are intended to fit 1987 and '93 Mustangs, either LX or GT. The kit consists of a grille insert, fender spats, rocker moldings, rear bumper cover, and a rear wing. The wing is molded out of fiberglass, and the rest of the kit is molded out of high-quality urethane.

If you're installing this on an LX, you will need to go ahead and pick up a GT front bumper cover and a set of GT door body side molding. If you're installing this kit on a GT, you'll need to remove all the metal attaching brackets for the factory GT ground effects. And you'll need to pick up a set of LX tailpipes, because your factory GT tailpipes are going to look kind of funny with that '93 Cobra bumper.

If you happen to have a '93 Cobra and you're looking for replacement parts, this kit isn't for you because these parts are aftermarket. They do give you the appearance, but they do attach differently than the factory Cobra pieces. Besides the obligatory trip to the body shop to have all the parts painted to match your car, you will need to have some body work done on your hatch for the wing to fit properly.

The rest of the kit installs pretty easily using double-sided tape and some screws. Very minor drilling is required. To pick up your '93 Cobra body kit, along with any of the supporting parts, like taillight lenses and emblems, check out latemodelrestoration.com.
