You have to be more specific than "the cobra." Your car has a motor that's almost identical to a 99-01 cobra, but differs drastically from an 03-04 cobra. A kit for an 03-04 cobra assumes you have that car's factory intercooler/lower intake setup.

Throw a vortech or procharger on it. No reason to delete the shaker or hood. Its what makes a mach a mach.

My mach made 464/402 with the vortech on 7.5lbs. Added some boost and fuel and went to 631rwhp.

The mach 1 motor is and aluminum non forged piston and rod verson of the 03/04 motor. So basically a 01 cobra shortblock with 03/04 heads, cams and slightly different intake than the 99/01.

I'm just not to big on the pro charger but I can always look into it. But I have read that you have to chance the front plate, is this true?

Kyle McCrary has a V2 Vortech complete for $2200 in Midwest City.

Which one is better, vortech or procharger
Grimster 09.07.2013, 18:52
important question - what is your budget?
Curtis0423 09.07.2013, 20:59
That's still up in the air right now, don't wanna get into the motor just yet. I'm going to wait until I hit 100k on the motor then tear into the motor and stroke it out hopefully

Just don't like the look of from when you open the hood, but I have been doing some reseach and I think I could live with the way it looks under the hood.

I think they look 10x better than a damn PD blower. And sound cooler imo. And imo they make more usable horsepower and torque. Never really understand having most ur power and stuff at the hit. Specially on a street car
