2001 Boosted Bullitt

I've come across a vortech centrifugal supercharged Bullitt that's for sale. last time I drove a Bullitt was 2010 and just wanted to know if any issues have risen with the cars since then. I'm aware that being supercharged will play a big role in the condition of the car. From what I can tell the engine is dry and runs strong. Brakes are in good condition and are the correct red cobra calipers. The body could use some loving; it's an easy fix for me. My only concern is the supercharger. The owner doesn't know if the engine has forged internals and he doesn't know how much boost it makes. I drove it but I didn't get on it. I shifted at around 3,000rpms and everything seemed fine. I've put superchargers on the 2v 4.6. I've never used this supercharger or done the job without forging the internals. So just wanting your opinions on the matter. He wants 11,900, clean carfax, and 97k miles. Pics:Click image for larger version

Looks like it's in good condition. Price is too high though.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Car looks great by the pics. I would keep the boost down since most likely its not forged. I wouldn't trust unless i had paperwork to back it up. At the price i wouldn't eliminate looking for an s197 as an option.

Yea I know I told I'm interested but I'm not paying 11,900 for it. It's not there at all. The body is somewhat worse in person. You can't really see it in the pictures. I really like the deep dish wheels and the shifter. The aftermarket hood is ok but it can always be changed.

Awesome. well you should go for it then. Sounds like you really have a thing for a new edge. Don't blame you i wouldn't mind an 03/04 cobra for a daily . You should definitely talk this guy down in price a bit

Honestly I don't really like them all that much. That's basically why I'm trying to get one. I've had my mustang for over a year and I drive it occasionally. This car I'd drive everyday rain or shine. Plus I've talked to a cobra owner who might sell it. If I was going to own a cobra it would be a 10th anniversary coupe black; which is what he has.

I dunno man if you don't really like them that much you might want to consider another car to daily you would drive in rain or shine. Guess the real question would be what do you like? It is a car you would have to put up with everyday

I meant the body style I'm not that big a fan of them. I like the terminators and the cobra r (2000). The only thing is the terminator is close $20,000 which is out of my price range. The cobra r is out of the question in price and as a daily driver. If one of my cars sell I'd definitely get the terminator over the bullitt but for now my best option is the bullitt. If I get the bullitt I think latter on I sell it for a terminator. Or maybe a termi engine swap with a t56 in the bullitt.

A Bullitt looks really good when done well. And I agree with Rap. 10k cash and it should be a deal.

I guess you could call it that. There's one car there I'd kill for. 2008 callaway corvette. Plus he tells me that 11,900 is a reduced price from 12,500. But I've contacted the cobra owner going to see it this weekend.
