I just got the cobra back from the shop.. had new heads put on (under aftermarket warranty) and added a stage 4 ported stiegemeier Blower, 2.76 upper, it has the accufab throttle body and plenum... Was tuned at 460RWHP and 444RWTQ.. its going back in to be re-tuned soon but I am going to order the #60 injectors, 2 pound lower pulley, SCT BA 2400, BAP.....

My goal is 550RWHP... think I will see this with the supporting mods?

Here is a pic of the motor when I got it back!

My goal is 530 but if my tuner can hit 550 and still be in the safe window I will be happy!

Thanks! for the compliments.... The vlave covers came out great... I never thought they could match the pulleys but they were dead on.... also match my 05 Sonic Blue GT paint.

550?...from what I've seen stg.4 steg. ports only do around 500ish on a dyno. The stage 5s were doing 550 when they recently posted the numbers.:scratch:

Engine bay is VERY clean regardless:thumbsup:

Most seeing those numbers are using dynojets with std numbers instead of the sae that most people go by which will net you around low 500's. The higher hp #'s are generally from tuners trying to show high numbers to give impression they somehow make more power than others. This tends to work on people who dont understand the difference between std and sae

Beware of the canton expansion tank. I had a tig weld split on me along the front of the tank over the winter of last year. Valve covers look great.:thumbsup:
