Does this guy have a Turbo or a Procharger? He must be running one or the other I would think since he needs a Univer (for what sounds like a blow-thru application.)

Smoking the tires in 3rd gear at 60 mph is what sounds fishy... if he is running 10 second quarter miles and shifting to 3rdgear at 60 mph, then he is crossing the finish line in 6th gear. :rolleyes:

I think the point was he could put it in third at 60 and still burn the tires off.

Speed in the 1/4 has very little to do with top speeds for each gear. If he was serious about dragging, he may have swapped out the stock 3.55's for something steeper. My car taps out at around 65 in second (absolute redline) with 3.90's so it isn't all that fishy.

And yes, I too can break the rearend loose on the interstate with the 2-3 shift, it's rather sexy when you're trying to impress someone and rather frustrating when you do it unintentionally.

As for his application.........THAT sounds fishy. A universal is typically needed for blow through app's (especially when the meter is before or after an elbow) and he mentions a pull through app (like Vortech). The reason it sounds fishy is that I haven't seen anything other than a KB or stock eaton on an 03........so if he's turboed or procharged, he'd be the first. (that I've seen with an 03 snake)

there is at least one turbo 03 cobra out there.

Ahhh, yes, you are correct....there's some sort of "uber motorsports 03 cobra out there" that just broke the old record (low 9's) with an 8.xx in the 1/4. They're going into the land of all out drag cars.....

I was referring to street cars (I thought he said they street raced).

It's just too early for 03 guys to be swapping to turbos (it wouldn't be very efficient to spend that money on an Eaton just to trash it for a turbo........given all the other components they'd trash as well)

It makes much more sense to turbo a Mach 1 (which I've always said is a better platform to get major performance out of.)

Yes, but a T-45 isn't any worse for drag racing (don't know of too many guys shifting into 5th OR 6th)

and the mach-1 has the solid rear and no blower. So you can install the blower/turbo of your choice and not eat the cost of the stock eaton, already have the solid axle and what's a set of rods/pistons cost..........

In the end, to build similar drag cars (solid rear, built motor and upgraded blower) it's cheaper to do with a mach-1

The 2003 Cobra running 9's has a auto and a Kenne Bell Blowzilla and a small shot of nitrous. I believe it has a stock bottom end.

Many out there running 525-550rwhp with the KB blower and bolt-on's on pump.
There are many Supras out there running 525-550rwhp with a single turbo and bolt-on's on pump. Your point?
