Cobras never came with MyColor - Shelby GT500s on the otherhand certainly did and were fitted with a Shelby only option that allows the gauges to display red (left) white (center) blue (right)

Thanks for the info, i have a bad habit of calling the gt500 cobras, and not being exact with my details! I picked up my 500 yesterday and enjoy it! I will post pics soon! Ive had a problem with the clutch making a hissing noise tho and it concerns me! I started a thread about it so if anybody can help me with answers i would greatly appreciate it

Hissing is normal for the stock clutch - if you want it to live a relatively long happy life be sure and depress the pedal completely and dont slip it, just get used to letting the clutch out and go (easy enough given the TQ & HP the car has)

Slipping the factory clutch has a pronounced effect on its life, moreso than a standard clutch in say the GT Mustang. Also if your hard headed like me and only slightly depress the clutch as your driving it tends to wear the tranmission side disc faster.

And if you end up having to replace the clutch in short order, I highly reccomend the McLeod RXT, I've nothing but good things to say about this clutch and flywheel combo.

Thanks for the info bud, I'll definitely keep that in mind! And yes I love the red white and blue scheme colors in my car! This is without the best birthday present I've ever had!!
