Termi or built 2v?

So im torn between getting a block and building my own blown 2v or selling my gt and getting into a termi. If I stick with the 2v im wanting about 500whp and already have the build plans for it, including suspension, rear, and trans etc. if I go the termi route exhaust would be the only thing i would do. I need help!

I have a thread similar. Its hard to decide, if you can find a clean lightly modded to stock termi with decent mileage id go termi. If not just build the 2v. You'll enjoy either.

Get the cobra. If you have the option to get one, dont think twice about it. My verry first mustang was a 03 gt. Sold it and bought a 03 cobra when I was 18. Best move I had ever made. Then sold the cobra to my uncle and bought a 427r then sold that and bought a coyote. When I had my 2v I had the same intentions as you.

What about putting a new Coyote in? I don't know what all that would entail, but could you imagine.

There's a guy with a 04 sonic blue gt that has a coyote swap with a tvs blower making well over 600rwhp at 9psi. Looks amazing under the hood too

Dont waste your money on the 2v. Get a termi! Think about all you have to do get your 2v to put down 500hp compared to a termi. I forgot who on this forum said that on their termi they did full exhaust, intake, and tune and they were around 460-470 hp. I think I could be missing another mod Im not sure.

Doesn't take that much. Can boost the 2v for about 4k faster than a stock terminator and still come out cheaper. Making big power like 600+ the termi is easier and less work. Both are fun options.

When i get a termi it's staying stock and garage kept for the rest of its life, I'm keeping my 2v and may be purchasing a teksid block and some heads for $500 to begin my gt build as well. Finding a close to stock low milage clean termi around here is damn near impossible though.

If you dont build the 2v too it wouldn't be any fun having the termi it would be an expensive garage decoration! If you can do both!

I just finished my 2v build with a teksid block and forged rotating assembly. The block can handle like 1200+ and the internals can do.. 900+ if I recall.

That's his #'s. I put $1500 in mods and made 490/490. Port/pulley/tune. Factory manifolds.

And btw.. It'd be cheaper to mod a 2v and it can beat termis.
My car so far is $7k buy price(which typically you can find with aftermarket exhaust, cai, gears, all kinda of regular stuff.)
$4500 engine rebuild, head job, fully forged rotating assembly, cam 2 upgrade and valve springs for it.
So that's $11.5k.
Then I can boost it and we'll go for the high price of $6k for the unit and full kit.
That's $17.5k.
Then all you have to do is suspension, gears, tires... Why don't we round to $20k? I can not even get a higher miles cobra for less than $22k where I'm from. And it won't be as fast or maneuverable as my little 2v that I made my own.
And btw.. Everything is gonna be new! Everything after the $11.5 estimate is just guesses. But I guessed high. Makes sense to me. And that's the path I will be taking. In excited about it!
And it will not cost me nearly that much because I do a lot of my own work and get deals on parts typically. And my good friend who does a lot of custom and engine work for mustangs is going to help me piece together a kit to boost it for less than what I estimated previously. It can be done for sure.

I've seen Cobras in good shape go in the mid $teens. Mileage is a little higher but not bad. But yeah for a nice low mileage one you are looking at around $20k.

Now, you can finance a Cobra still and it won't take very much to get to your goals and the work is already mostly done. How much is your time worth? Because unless you do it ALL yourself you are going to pay way more than $20k. Also if you want to just get into it now and enjoy it without waiting months to a year+ to get the 2V done there is that to think about as well.

With that said, I'm a big fan of building the 2V if you are going in a different direction than a Terminator or can't afford it all at once. If you can/are willing to finance a Terminator it might be the better option. I'm not because I am DONE with car payments forever in 3 years (buy used and buy cash). I also want to be able to drive my car's *** off without worrying about goobering up a numbered car.

No it wont. You will have to throw alot of money into a 2v to make it beat a 03/04 cobra. Exp if its like my old one. I had a 2v also they are turds big turds unless you put some nice $$ into them

He's talking 11k and that's a lot of money yes, but when a cobra runs 23k I'd rather build my 2v with 11k you would be pushing over 500hp

Still wont beat the cobra. The 2vs are not that quick. Im not talking about #'s. The 2vs need alot of $ to be fast. They are starting to make a come back but they have a **** load in them

---------- Post added at 10:20 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:16 AM ----------

You can find them for under 23 now. Depending on where you look. The ones I see for 23 still only have 5-30k miles on them

---------- Post added at 10:21 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:20 AM ----------

When I had mine I bought it for 28 with 10k. Sold it to my uncle with 40k. Now it has 60k on it

If you put 11k into a 2v and can't beat a cobra then you need a driver mod..

That much in a 2v will probably beat a stock cobra. A pulley swapped or blower swapped Cobra? No chance.
