2018 Ford Cobra Jet Features Kooks Headers

STATESVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA (August 17, 2018) – It takes quality performance parts to build the fastest production Mustang ever. Kooks Headers & Exhaust is proud to be featured on the new, limited production 50th Anniversary Mustang Cobra Jet, with a pair of specifically designed headers.
         The 2018 Cobra Jet, introduced this past weekend at the Woodward Dream Cruise, is capable of 8.5 ¼-mile E/Ts at 150 mph, making it the quickest Mustang ever produced. Ford plans to release power figures later this year.
         “The staff at Kooks are extremely proud to be featured on such a historic vehicle,” said VP of Sales and Marketing Chris Clark, “We’re all about performance, quality, and being American made, themes exemplified by Ford’s new Cobra Jet. Plus, we just like to go fast.”
         The Cobra Jet features a new purpose-built header, specially designed in conjunction with Ford. “It was a fun experience to develop a new product with Ford,” said Clark. Kooks currently offers headers for the 2008-2012, 2011-2014 and 2015-2017 Cobra Jets.
         “From the very first Mustang Cobra Jets dominating the 1968 NHRA Winternationals to our modern-day racers, the Ford Performance Parts team continues to build on Cobra Jet’s success at the track over five decades,” said Eric Cin, global director, Ford Performance Parts. “This has inspired generations of Mustang fans to create their own performance machines for the street.”
         The car is powered by a specially-built 5.2 L, based off the 5.0L V8, and outfitted with a 3.0L Whipple supercharger. The Mustang hooks up thanks to a four-link rear suspension with a panhard bar, along with adjustable coil-over shocks and a solid 9-inch rear axle. The rear axle features a Strange Engineering low-drag brake system.
         This Cobra Jet pays homage to the original, which debuted at the 1968 NHRA Winternationals, with a limited production of 68 cars. Customers can order now at an MSRP of $130,000.
For the past 56 years, Kooks Headers and Exhaust has built a sterling reputation in the performance aftermarket and racing industry for its relentless dedication to quality, performance and innovation. All Kooks Headers and Exhaust products are hand assembled to the highest quality possible, with all exhaust tubing and flanges built in-house using aircraft-quality 304 stainless steel.
