    You WOULD NOT regret to own a terminator. i know a few people peronally who switched from T/A to termy says that they would never go back.

    now, if i ever have to get rid of my cobra, my next car will be a black LS1 WS6. i love those things.

    hell, with only 1k in mods, the car is running low 11s

    I wouldnt buy another F-bod but I WOULD buy and LS3 Vette or a used C6 Z06 which is WHAT I was hoping for. I may just trade my Wife's car in and sell the Cobra and get a 300C SRT8 that all 3 of us can drive and save $1000 a month. Wont be near as fast BUT in 2-3 yrs I could get a used Z07......I am really gonna miss the Cobra.

    The F-bods are more and more ragged now (years of production 98-02) so finding a great one will cost you $13-18K. I do miss my 99 SS some though but not near what I will feel for the Cobra. I dont even want to sell it locally, one day my OLD car may kick my ass! That and I really dont want to see it around, I really wish to keep it if I could.

    I have been in a few cobras they arent bad cars, its just when a isee a T/A and a cobra side by side its a no brainer which one i want. Thats the one i have. After my mods this year which is just under 2k i will be low 11s. I also only paid 10700 for my car with 2 year warrenty. But once again if you wanna say my car with only 1k in mods ran low 11s, then i have to ask what you paid 25k? thats 26k and my supra with only around 9k in work and the made 517rwhp. That 9k got me the car, new motor, tranny, suspension, raer end and turbo setup. Includeing gauges and exhaust. Nest year with about 5k more work into it a 14k car now it will be making a reliable 600-650rwhp. A low 10 possibly high 9 second car. Not quite sure if you know but if you wanna talk runnign 10s for cheap id say i got you, and you must remember even in the late 80 the supra turbo stock from factory went for somewhere in the 30,000s. The car is solid aas hell and has a traga top making it heavier but a hell of alot cooler.Im just saying if you wanted to talk performance for money.

    If you can have a DD that runs 9/10's for $25-30K these days with few problems (reliability issues) its a hell of a bargin. Doesnt matter if its a Cobra, T/A or Supra. I would take a Cobra over a T/A and Supra though. All 3 are great cars though.

    Either way I dont prefer N/A. I had the 100 shot on my SS since it was much cheaper than a Procharger. I want a H/C LS3 Vette (500rwhp) with a BIG SHOT as my next street car. Or a C6 Z06 with lots more power...and a BIG SHOT.

    Make sure you torque those ARP studs!
    Sounds like a bad azz set up. Street cars will need 700+rwhp in the next few years, scary.

    Hey i own a supra i know a bit about torqueing shit lol, with stock head, and a triple metal head gasket way over torqued it took 28psi on a 67trim turbo with stock internals lol. I fucked up some cylinder walls but the head gasket never blew lol. Was making 517rwhp on 19psi which is what it was tuned for i wonder what it was making on 28 lol

    Stock yes, affordalbe i think not the vette with the 6.3liter supercharged motor making 653hp at the crank is gonna be 110-120k. Thats a hell of down payment on a house if you ask me.

    not really, I said in 4-5 years that car will be 60k... that's a hell of a deal considering LP640 640hp and 500k price tag and other exotics.

    Obviously thats alot cheaper but a 6year old car for 60k still not really a deal to me, i got my 6 year old car for 10,700 with 48k miles and for under 20more thousand would be a 9 second car. I could easily put 20-30k into this car in the next 6 years. Just saying im not rich and if i were to spend 60k it would be on a brand new car or truck. Or a complete race car.

    Here's one...



    BTW....what does your car run again? And coulda/shoulda/woulda does not make a car run 9s. Or 10s. Or even 11s.

    PS....do you know what overtorqueing headbolts can lead to?
