99 Cobra Update
He gets into the 10's
Got the car back from Alternative
Auto, Lidio did an excellent job on the car. We put in a Felpro/Speedpro
Computer on the car. We went to a return style fuel system. We used
the STOCK rails, and converted them to a return style rail.
Export filler neck
97 style fuel tank
We swapped to
a 97 style tank, we used an export filler neck (now I can pull right
up to the turbo blue pump), We used a Cartech pickup, with a Bosch External
Pump. We used a Cartech Regulator. Steel Braided Lines. We wired up
a MSD DIS-4 with an EDIS 8.
We used a small
amount of octane boost, so we ran with about 96 octane in the car. We
saw 504 RWHP and 415 RWTQ, however, that is on a Mustang Dyno which
sees 8 to 12% less than a dynojet which is normally used. I took the
mid and went with 10% difference. So, my official numbers are 560rwhp
and 461rwtq. The car pulls hard up to 7700 rpms. Peak HP was at 7400
rpms (awesome) and peak torque is at 6400rpms. The car is seeing 14psi
@ 7400 rpms, and that is with only a 3.1 pulley on the SC trim. The
SC has the downgraded impeller.
I should be getting some new ET's hopefully in the next few weeks. However,
i'll probably start out on Drag Radials, just to feel the car out for
the first few weeks. Then back to the slicks.
Well, new best of 10.81 @
129.08 1.57 60' that was short shifting 1-2 and 2-3 by almost 400 rpms,
the car saw 14.7psi
I have gotten as low as 1.51 60' last year. The car definately has a
10.6 or lower in it!
was at 11.457 @ 123.63)
To drive safely,
we aren't going over 6500 rpms, I will be swapping to a return style
system here shortly. going to ride the rest of the year out so i don't
have anymore down time.
The six point roll bar with swingouts is installed along with a driveshaft
loop, and a 5 point 3" racing harness. So, we are now officially
legal for 10's. I also had a custom swingout done by paul's automotive
in cincy for me. The bar Iwent with is a maximum motorsports 6 point
We got the Anderson
power pipe on, along with an 8rib pulley setup, and SHM air to air aftercooler.
We added 50 lb/hr injectors and a new proM Mass air.
