Re: 2003 cobra swap

New info.The car dynoed at 471RWHP a year ago when it was tuned and has mac lts,mac or h,spec clutch,mgw shifter,slp loudmouth one catback,upper and lower pulleys,cai and sct tune by PSI. I had a scout from SVTperformance.com Go take a look and drive it. He drives a 03 Term w/468RWHP and he said it doesn't feel like its got 471. Might just be the fact that's he used to his car but I'm still not convinced.I think of telling them if they do a new dyno run a show me current #'s then we can talk otherwise I will keep lookin.

Re: 2003 cobra swap

Good plan...no sense in rushing the sale or buying something you're not sure about. That's the worst thing you can do. Keep us updated

Re: 2003 cobra swap

I would rather buy one low on mods since pulley swaps are cheap and easy to do buying from a dealer rather than the person that did the mods is hard since you cant get info about the car~ my car may have mods but I know every one of them and how they were done etc etc

Re: 2003 cobra swap

Actually getting ahold of the previous owner was not so hard.Got his name from the dyno sheet,googled his name,pulled his facebook page,sent a PM and he responded with,"What would you like to know?" He is the one who gave me the mod list since the dealer didnt know jack.Im now looking at a 04 mystichrome in Cali which I recieved a PM about on another site with some inside info (I will not say how) about the car and in the process of talking price with my dealer here in Austin which is a sister store.

Re: 2003 cobra swap

Does sound less modded than the black one engine wise, and has lower miles...but like you said, if mystichrome's not your thing, don't pressure yourself into a car you really don't like. Plus, sounds like the car's been prepped for heavy track use...any knowledge on if it's been fairly active on the track?

Mystichrome is one of those colors you either love or hate. I personally love it, some don't, plain and simple.

Re: 2003 cobra swap

Oh you mean the little bit of purplish pink you can see...eh just figure there's about 5% of that on the car, the other 95% is blue, black and green

Believe it or not, there is a good amount of purplish pink in sonic blue too. When my car sits under a light at night, you can see it real good in the bumper and along the edges of the car.
