As terminator I'm assuming your saying 03-04 cobra, it all fairly depends on what route you go and how much your parts/labor cost you. Switching to a kb 2.2 and a nasty tune can bring you 550+

Kenne bell makes kits that just replace the stock Eaton. They are real affordable.

Ok lets just assume this guy doesn't know anyone with a used one. 500 rwph is still very attainable with 3K. Pull your stock eaton off and take to get it ported (say $500 for labor), new pulley ($150), CAI ($230), (Tune + tuner = $450), full exhaust ($1,500). I'd say you would be very close to 500rwhp with these. Alternate routes are obtainable. Most people with full bolt ons and a good tune make in excess of 450rwph with an 03/04 cobra, thus get the supercharger ported and your done in my eyes.

My 2 cents. While horsepower isnt always the largest contributing factor to speed it is an important one. Since were proving a point and aftermarket superchargers are expensive. Your best power producing mods are going to be JLT Intake ACCUFAB tb and inlet, 14psi pulley,(14 psi is efficency cap of stock supercharger) SCT tuner. These will be your most power producing bolt on mods for the Terminator. This will leave you with enough for a 150hp nitrous system. Spend any left over on the best exhuast you can afford. Net Horsepower will be over 700.

On a side note I recall an old magazine article where the mods a guy used were worth an aproxamate $3500. The car ran 10.80's WITHOUT nitrous.
