What kind of cost are we talking to get a 2003 Cobra, from stock, to go 9's or at least, low 10's.

I'm very curious as to how much Nitrous Pete had to shell out exactly in order to get his precious '03 to hit the 9.9 mark. Thanks.

No much at all...I buy everything for him ;)

I would say somewhere in the 6000-6500 k range. Just a guess though. (not including the tranny swap) That would add about 3000 to 4000.

So if the car is bought for 33k and you put even 7k into it...your still only at 40 for a car that can be driven on the street with the a/c on and idle smooth as a stock 03. Cant beat that.

Does this include the offset cost by selling the old tranny and the old Eaton blower??? Also, I don't mean to include a hell shot of nitrous into the equation.

Hey buddy...the shot of nitrous is only a 40 or 50 shot...works wonders on these blown cars..really...it does.

My cost numbers were just a ball park. But in selling the tranny/shifter/adj cable/firewall adj....it might not be too bad if you look at it that way. Doing the work yourself would really save alot of money too. Selling the stock blower will help too...might only be 6k total then by the time your done

There is a very high cost to being able to run 9's

What I am refering to is durability and civility.
Stock has its advantages.

Aside from that, to do it correct.

$4000 for the blower and bits and pieces.

$500 for NOS

$250 for CIA

$750 for TB

$500 minimum for Pulleys & belts

$500 for injectors.

$1000 for Chips and Tunes

$1000 for Headers

$1200 for Roll Cage

$250 For Subs

$750 For Exhaust

$4000 For Auto

$1000 to take care of rear end

$800 for tires and wheels

$3500 for paid install or for knuckle bandages and marriage counciling.

$1500 to get you going at the track, (tools , fuel and oils, safety gear.)

$20,500 Plus $35000 for car.

Gee $55,500 for a 9 second car with air conditoning and licence plates.

Where the hell else can you get such a deal.

I am dead serious about this being a deal. I've done this before, never getting in the 11's. (No Air Conditioner)
