    The xpipe fits perfect. Only thing on the 97 cobra is it where the o2 bungs are welded on they hit the trans crossmember. So keep them plugged and turn them off or get tubular crossmember. Looks and fit are awesome tho. With a set of the kooks longtubes xpipe tune and Intake picked up 29whp.

    I've combined this off road x pipe with kooks 3"x 5/8" and a 3" straight pipe all the way through and I have to say it sounds absolutely BEAST!!, The finish to the pipes are smooth and precise, I have nothing bad to say about this. I would definitely recommend this to free up some power. I can also feel the power gains in the bottom end, Puts you in your seat.
