Well Ladies and Gentlemen, be Jealous.
This is my 97 Cobra. I paid 5500$ for this beast. It has a completely forged motor with about 2k miles on it. (Driven it for 1200) The previous owner bought it and put 12k worth of work into this motor with receipts to prove it. Now to the motor specifications.
9:1 Compression lowered from 9.85:1
4340 Forged Pistons, I do not remember the brand unfortunately. Manley H Beam connecting rods with some Nice MMR bronze valve's to make it a dream. Block is a teksid which should take around 800 Horsepower pretty easily and it is lighter then the Iron block.
Bolt Ons: So far it has 2004 Terminator Cams with BBK Long tubes to a BBK X pipe with no exhaust. I have 2.5 Inch tailpipes to install but the noise is the most beautiful noise i have ever heard in my Life.
Plans: I got big plans for Jessica.
First I plan to do a T56 Magnum swap since my T5/T45 grinds in 3rd and locks me out of reverse.
Then swap out the rear axles and Diff to 31 Spline to take the beating. From there I will go to Coil's and Maximum Motorsports Camber Caster plates.
Then the good stuff why I posted here.
I am going to go forced induction but I looking for all the opinions I can get. Turbo or Supercharged?
(Only the 2003-2004 Cobra's came factor supercharged)

Only dynoed 258 to the rear wheels when the usually dyno 266 to the rear wheels I attribute that to the loss in compression and the loss wasn't as great with the Cams and Longtubes being installed
