There are several kits available that will bring the motor up to it's fullest, non-breakable horsepower (app. 400 rwhp). I have Vortech's V-2 SQ and I know quite a few others with the Procharger setup. Check out the various websites and give the manufacturer's a call.

You might also check into turbocharging, perhaps there is some savings.

I am guessing you're looking at a minimum $6000 new (including installation) or as little as $2000 for used parts and you're own labor.

did you figure out the pinging noise on yours yet?

not to rain on your parade, but before going forced air, I would make sure that your engine is ready for it.

BTW, there is another option...sell your Cobra.

Then buy another that is already boosted...in fact, I would get one that already has a rebuilt engine (that is one with the lower end beefed up)...like mine is good for 800 rwhp, it flows better (that's why I only see 5psi rather than 8 psi that stock motors see), but of course, you MUST ensure you found a good car...I happen to know a little something about that - the HARD way!

As an example, according to recent sales, you could fetch about $6500 for yours and then pick up a boosted SN95 for $10-12k and will have more power and reliability than a boosted stock motor. You can also look at a Terminator...I sold my 90k mile slightly modded '03 for $15k and it's more fun to drive!

see the problem is a 03 or 04 cobra here is the CHEAPEST i found here in canada is 25gs plus the beautiful taxs on it..i just got mine 2 weeks ago for 6500 taxs in.. you guys got it made down there and the dollar sucks now even if i wanted to go down there to buy one..as for the noise have not checked it yet but i think its a valve have to rip off the valve cover still .and trust me i would love to have a 03 or 04 but to pay that kind of money and still want to do some mods to it wouldnt make sense
