        so I will need to get 99 or newer camshafts for my 1998 SVT Cobra to use this kit?

        • This kit is not compatible with the factory cams in the 96-98 motors. You would either need the newer factory cams, or aftermarket cams to use this kit.

        I currently have a straight pipe setup with SLP LM1 Mufflers and a drop-in K N intake. With this kit installed, and tuned, approximately how much added HP/TQ will this output? What other recommended items should be added while engine is apart? 2004 Mach 1 standard trans w/ 162,000mi

        If I buy this kit for my 1999 Cobra will I get the M10 Cam Bolts or the right M12 Bolts, If not do you sell those bolts

        • This kit will include the M10 Cam bolts.

        Does this timing kit fit the 1997 mustang cobra engine or not?

        • This will fit a 97 Cobra.

        I'm confused. If it will not fit 96 - 98 cams, why does the listing say it's for 96 - 01 Cobra?

        • Since the Cobra Mustangs were sold with 4-Valve motors instead of the 2-Valve motors that were sold in the V6 and GT Model Mustangs of those years, this Ford Performance Camshaft Drive Kit will work on the 96'-01' Cobras and 03'-04' Mach 1's.

            Very nice timing set

            Super happy with the timing set. It comes with the cast tensioners. Not the cheap plastic ones that are prone to failure.

            Made timing it super easy

            The marked links made and the quality of the kit was awesome. You can get by without the special cam tool if you have someone hold both set of cams with two ratchets(one for each head)

            03 Cobra Timing kit

            Awesome kit, comes with everything you need that’s timing related, fair cost, great instructions. Couldn’t be happier, installed my self in about an hour after I had the motor all torn apart.

            Good Price

            Package has everything to get the engine to turn. Detailed instruction. Camshaft sprocket bolt is not the right size for my 99 Cobra. I have to use ARP bolt.

            Almost perfect

            Everything in this kit was great. Definitely an upgrade from stock and comes with all required pieces. My only issue is that the cam sprocket bolts in the kit are M10, and my 99 cobra cams need and M12 bolt. Ford shows that stock is an M12, so I had to run to 3 local Ford dealers to come up with 4 bolts to do the install. FYI, Ford states that they are the exact same as the harmonic balancer bolt.

            Mach 1 timing set with gears, chains, tensioners and guides

            Good price to value ratio. Ford Racing part so you know it fits. Looked like quality parts, but should include the valve cover gaskets to be a 100 complete "kit" IMO...Install is not for the faint of heart...

            A great deal for premium parts!

            Shopped for these parts individually but this was better and cheaper.
