Hi Gary,
It's the original E38 ECU that came with the motor and modified by Sideshow who used to be on this forum.

Thanks Dean,
Sideshow also did the same flip on my loom, i have got ECU resting behind where the dash will be but need to get dash in place so i can work out where to mount ECU and fuse box.
How are you progressing? Have you fired your motor yet? Who are you using for Engineering, I am using Sot from Modified Vehicle Engineering in Salisbury South, very happy with him,

Cheers
Richard

That's good to hear Richard.

Hopefully it will be a "turn key" fire up when you are ready.

Hi Richard,
Thanks for the update.
Your build looks great!
If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your side pipes?
I have been pricing up having some made, but I love the look of yours.
Regards Will

Hi Wil,

Thanks for comments, the side pipes were from ebay, i purchased them back in 2018, they were around $400 USD.
Patriot Exhaust 50 in Long Shielded Chrome Exhaust Side Pipes 2 pc H1050
( 183429257174 )
They still have them on there but have gone up in price. I can't comment on their sound as yet, when i had my headers and under body exhaust done, i also had joiners made up so that i can remove u/body exhaust (3 bolts total per side) and connect the side pipes.

Richard

Looks great. You must have had a good amount of shed time during covid. How was the build? Did you need to fabricate much or was it mostly supplied?
Engine bay and suspension look real tidy

Hi Richard, Cobra looks great! Looking forward to seeing more pics with body and paint progress. What colour(s) are you doing?

Hi Slipry,

My "kit" purchase was for a bare chassis and body only, so i have sourced/ modified/made/refurbished most of the parts/components. The build overall has been enjoyable, alot of fabricating or modifying, sometimes frustrating with the common 2 steps forward 1 back
scenario and very rewarding. I try to do at least i task every day so not sure what i will do when finished, wife will be happy to get husband back!!!

Richard

Hi Will,

Thanks for comment, looking at 2019 Ford Ranger blue with a brilliant white for the stripes. Not looking forward to dropping it of at the painters, it will be weird when opening door to garage and it not being there.
How is your progress on your build going?

Richard

"not sure what i will do when finished, wife will be happy to get husband back!!!".
Richard, your wife might only see you when you take her out for a drive.Even though you might say it's finished there is always something you want change/modify/update.

I, and no doubt most of us, know the two steps forward and one step back scenario, but having to make, source or modify all other components is a steep hill to climb. Amazingly well done Richard

Cheers!
Glen

Hi Richard, I am chipping away at my Cobra, also 2 steps forward, one step back. I am doing most of the work myself, including body and paint. I really enjoy the fabrication side of the build and am just about to finish the stainless drop tank (I’m going to run on e85 but have fitted a flex fuel sensor)I have made all of the fuel lines in braided stainless with an fittings, made the brake lines, made the dash and fitted the gauges, made a glove box and lid, fitted all the chrome work and windscreen. Made under dash mountings for the ecu,fuse panel and relays. Mounted the radiator with brackets I’ve made. Have made a fan shroud. (I bought a sheet metal brake and went nuts) All the suspension and brakes are done - I fitted the full ap racing calipers and big discs off an R8 commodore. I ordered yesterday the afm delete with a new cam etc from America. I made my own extractors. The bodywork is about 90% done, but has taken a lot longer than anticipated due to the poor figment and alignment of the body I received. I’m looking forward to doing the wiring. Sideshow has my loom and ecu which should be done any day now. I will put some pictures up soon. It’s exciting for you to get your car painted, the real fun (IMO) begins when you can start reassembly with all the shiny bits. ��

Sounds good Will, sounds very familiar, i to bought a brake and went nuts, very handy for the ali panels and made my own shroud as well. Can you register with non standard cam, over here it as to be stock standard. I will be interested to hear how your cam swap changes your motor, ie how much extra KW and if it gives a lumpy idle. Keep updates coming mate and pictures.

Richard
