8.5:1 comp Cobra engine with a centri blower?
So just how horrible would daily driving/part throttle be with 8.5 compression and a Procharger? I can get a factory fresh 03/04 Cobra short block built for 1000+ HP for $5000. Manley rods and pistons, but it was designed to keep the original compression ratio.
Is out-of-boost around-town driving and casual passing on the highway gonna be like "well damn, this sucks" or is it something that really isn't that big of a deal?
The P-1SC is going to be maxed out, so not really worried about it under boost. Shooting for 600-ish rwhp.
