Wow , cool car , with the front air dam and cowl hood ?
I used to have an '80 Cobra Turbo like that back in '85 , black with that hideous green cobra decal on the hood .... lol , loved that car , ended up yanking the 2.3 and putting an '85 roller 5.0 in it and a shot of Juice ...

well the turbo that was in mine was carbed and put out a whopping 145hp
sounded like a buzz bomb and wouldn't get out of its own way .......
that 5.0 woke it right up and you can't beat the sound of a v8

Ya but how much power did the 5.0 put out wait they had the 255 in 80 and that had even less power and you could do bigger jets and more boost with the 2.3 and make even more power.
