I just want to see what times some blown 98 cobra verts are running at the track. I'm gonna buy my dad's bright atlantic blue 98 cobra vert after i sell my car and will probably supercharge it along with doing some exhaust, intake work and some gears. I'd like to run 11's. Would this be a lot of trouble with the vert?

A buddy of mine just got his 98 Cobra vert back from PHP last week. Motor is Bone stock from intake to oil pan. Mods are: JBA 1 5/8" shorty's, Bassani off-road X-pipe, Borla cat-back, Vortech w/ aftercooler, stock Vortech pulley, tune, 4.10 gears and ET Streets. First time at track with ET Streets and the Vortech

1.81 60ft
7.69 @ 94.3 mph 1/8th
11.76 @ 122+mph 1/4 Check out that MPH!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Wait till he gets the launch down so the 60ft times get down in the 1.6x range. Can you say 11.30's!!! :D

Hope that helps.

Also, his tune is EXTREMELY, I mean EXTREMELY mild and he is only spinning it to 6500 RPM! Again, trying to be as safe as possible with the stock bottom end. There is ALOT left in it if he decides to test his luck on the stock internals.

99BLACKCOBRA I seen you car in the magazine, how do you like the MoTec unit, I went with the 6 speed and strengthen my IRS so I don't think I will ever leave the line as hard as your car, but would love to know if you are happy with the MoTec unit.

I really like the motec unit.. It has all the tables you need to setup just about anything. It was less expensive the a speed-pro to install as well(depends on which model). But i would definately go with it again. The only problem is that not a whole lot of people know how to program it, so if you go with a motec be sure to find someone who is very good at programing. Well i guess that holds true for any system. Anyhow Good Racing.

1999blackcobra> What kind of rwhp were you pushing for the 127 mph? Do you have a cage in your car? Do you have any pics? I am getting ready to do one for mine but am unsure what to get. What compression ratio are you pushing with how much boost? Thanks bud!

NOVI> the tires were 10.5 E/T streets @12psi.> couldnt get any traction at all. Going for some E/T drags next.
