Ok, first I'll answer your question, and then I'll tell you what I think you should do.

The Answer: The 50mm's will provide adequate power enough to get the car to go extremely fast. If for some reason you wanted to upgrade the kit later on, you can go from there, but I'd stick with the 50's for right now so you keep the quick spoolup time.

The Advice: Cancel your order. I'm not sure how many of those kits you've seen in person, but I've seen 10+, and every last one of them were junk. The design of the kit is flawed, the workmanship is pathetic, and the materials they use are substandard. In my honest opinion, it looks like it was made by a meth addict in a muffler shop somewhere in Arkansas. The fact that the kit takes 6 months for delivery only compounds that fact. For the price, the kit should be much, much better than that.

Now, having said that, I would go with a Hellion kit. Not only is the kit cheaper, and on the shelf (which means no waiting), but it is a superior design made of superior materials. The company provides some of the best customer service, bar none, and the guy's wife is a babe to boot.

I would have to disagree with your opinion on HP kits. I have a few friends that run HP systems. The green twin turbo notchback on their website is a local guy here. That kit is flawless and made perfectly. I have personally see that car and a few others run consistantly in the 8s here in albuquerque.

I would also vote for Hellion. I have seen 2 HP kits for the 03/04 cobra and they did not even begin to fit right.
8 month wait on 1 kit.

The twin T3/TO4E's that HP sells in their kits will make 800-850 RWHP and will take you well into the 9's. Twin 67's are just going to be really laggy on the street.
