    Caddy XLR Vs 03 Cobra Kill....

    I have been trying to lay low. There have been a rash of street racing accidents and cops pulling guys over for exhaust/tint tickets here in the local area.

    but today my ego got the better of me. I was cruising home from work and MMOB when I looked in my rearview mirror and I see a set of daytime running lights coming up pretty quick. I figured it was a C5/C6 Vette (because of the ride height).

    Nope it was a Caddy (not sure if it was the faster one but it had a mesh grill), younger guy was driving he pulls up beside me and begins to pace me at about 65. We do this for about a 1/2 mile, I figured this a good time to crack open the bottle. I look over and notice he's looking at me. He stabs the throttle a couple times and I offer a thumbs up and then down shift into third.


    before I could hit the horn to count it off, he mashs it to the wood and get about a car on me, I respond with a healthy ear full of ported blower on nitrous whine and instantly pull two cars, then open my lead to 5 and kill it at 120. He gave me the holy shit thumbs up and I return the compliment. We went our seperate ways. nice car, cool driver.

    about 30HP....

    just kidding, they make both kits they do the same thing. A wet shot uses a fuel jet and a Nitrous jet. A dry shot injects just nitrous and uses the existing fuel system to add the needed fuel.

    Wet shots are safer and make more power on most cars. N2O works well on 03 cobras because the eaton blowers make a lot of heat, which robs power. So i use it more for cooling than power, but the added power is nice too...

    You probably didn't need the nitrous with those mods.

    The Mesh grill would be a supercharged XLR-V right? 440hp or so, 13.0 1/4 mile? Nice kill. Glad the guy actually drives it like it should be.

    What area are you in w/ the crack-down?

    Great kill! I seriously doubt someone driving a Caddy woulda known what a '03 Cobra looks like. He probably thought you were a GT.

    I wish I could make that sound and have that response.

    What size jet are you using. You can't go by the size shot on 03/04's. I would think if it was at least a .047 jet your torque would be closer to 700. Maybe the extra fuel is pulling the torque back a little. I'm sure it's safer. I put a dry kit on a buddies 03 and I couldn't believe the power that thing got. His sister is married to Johnny Lightning's brother and he gets these "special" burns. He made about the most power I've seen on the stock, unported Eaton, 510 rwhp SAE and 508 rwt. When we finally got the bugs worked out it made 580 rwhp but his torque was 714 with a .047 jet.

    The first time we put it on the dyno I told him we needed to gap his plugs to .023 but he didn't believe me and he was afraid it would hurt his power without the spray. When we hit it on the dyno it sputtered really bad. We gave up after three pulls. On the way home his car started knocking. I thought "Oh crap". I put a WOT switch on it so it was spraying at 2500 rpm when he started his pull. Just after it started knocking I read that you shouldn't hit the nitrous below 3-3.5k rpm. I just knew I hurt that motor. I drove his car home and it took me a day to find it but his alternator pulley was coming loose. Boy, was I relieved. I put a window switch on it to spray at 3500 rpm and regapped his plugs. It made the 510 rwhp on the 023 gap. He was happy. He has a 3.73 in a solid axle. That car is a lot lighter than an IRS car like mine and will break the tires loose a lot easier. At 100 mph in fourth that car will lay down black stripes as long as you can hold it. I just put a KB on it. He plans on spraying it at 20 psi. He just can't get enough. I read all this crap about 03's blowing but nobody beats on one more than my buddy and sticking as much boost in it as the belt will grip. I've watched him hot lap 20 passes at Rockingham. Watching him made me feel a lot better about how I beat on mine. It's all in the tune/tuner.
