Default The 2003 COBRAs Are Starting To Show Their Potential

Not too shabby for a fully loaded 3600 pound pig with stock tires and only 4 modifications. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

With weight reduction, cooler air, an off-road H-pipe, stickier tires, and a better ring and pinion, high 10's and low 11's should be in the near future.

Case and point:

These cars are starting to look better every day. <img border="0" alt="[Burnout]" title="" src="graemlins/burnout.gif" />

Its just like a supra. Their gonna make mad power. but instead waiting for a turbo to spool up they got a blower so thereis no lag with the power. perfect for drag racing

Who cares about a fox-body 03 cobra powered car? Thats just showing that the overweight pig that the motor came out of can't put down respectable times for the power its making. I am sure an Rx7 with an LS1 and 4 choice mods could definately run that fast or faster on motor <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

03 Cobra motors are sweet. Factory forged internals, capable of handling alot of abuse. Similar to a Supra motor, only bigger.

Jahel, you have a supercharged Cobra, how come your Cobra isn't showing us any "potential"?

Time to trade it in? <img border="0" alt="[jester]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_jest.gif" />

The motor is a nice setup but is stuck behind a pig of a car. My statement was pointing out that having the motor run a good time in a lighter car shows nothing about the original car's potential!

People have been boosting Notches with 12 lbs of boost and running fast for years, some of them only weigh like 3000 raceweight... so what's all the hoopla.

Most of the 03's around here are driven by C5 wannabee guys who drive like it's a Thunderbird.

I wonder what a Ls1 would run with a roots type blower and 12#'s of boost? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="images/icons/rolleyes.gif" />

I'm about to find out what a forged internal iron block ls1 can run off 12+ pounds of boost on a single t76 setup. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

-Tony</strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I'm very pleased with my car, Tony. 450 HP and 400 foot-pounds at the crank are enough to bring a smile to my face every time I stomp on the gas pedal. All this on only 6 pounds of boost, an off-road H-pipe, and a stock bottom end that has taken a lot of abuse. The car hasn't been to the track yet since the blower install, but with drag radials and good weather this fall, I am hoping for 11.9's @ 116.

I wouldn't trade my car in for anything right now. A forged engine will be in store within the next year to handle more boost. My goal is to run low 11's @ 120+ on 12 pounds.

What's the news on your new motor? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" />
