I have to admit, I never thought I'd be impressed by Ford. I'm not trying to stary a Ford v. The World pissing match, but in terms of cars Ford was never really on my radar, so to speak.

Then...I saw the SVT Mustang Cobra in action. 40-120MPH in 4th gear clocking about 410HP @ 6100RPM...can you say DAAAAAAAAAAAMN?

Well, sheeit...

DAAAAAAAAAAAMN

Now that's what I'm talkin' about. I was standing near the engine bay during the runs and feeling the whine coming off that supercharger was something else...a thing a beauty.

The car was an 03, with new blower pulleys and a tighter blower belt and a tune. That's it.

Slap a blower on any car and you'll make it faster.

My brother in law bought a used Cobra and he had a blower and intercooler installed. Can you say sleeper. Hate to say it it will take a stock C6 off the line.

Basically.

An SVT Cobra BETTER have AT LEAST 410 hp...or I'd be pissed.

It's not hard to get 350hp/430ft. lbs. of torque out of a 2.3Turbo ford. So 410 out of a V8? should be no problem...

In fact I've seen many V8 crate motors that are 400hp+ and naturally aspirated. 383 stroker GM crate motors come to mind...

Except that this is a factory built car where they have to figure in reliability, emissions and fuel economy. A factory turbo/super charged car is way better, in terms of reliability, than slapping a turbo/super charger on you naturally aspirated engine.

A guy I work with has an '05 Saleen S-281. About a month after he got it, he put a Vortech supercharger, 4:10 gears and a re-mapped computer program in it. That wasn't enough for him, so he had the exhaust changed and had a bigger pully put on the blower. That damn thing runs like a scalded dog. And it looks great also. I am jealous as hell!!!!

BilletFlow belongs to a riding buddy of mine and his Dad. I worked for them during a layoff a while back and helped troubleshoot the pulleys and developed the instructions for the Oval Bore Throttle Body they do for the Cobra. As a bike guy, I'm not easily impressed by a "cage", but the Cobra I drove for 2 weeks while working with the throttle body was fun in a fast go-kart kinda way!

Um, I'm no Chevy lover... I actually prefer Fords, but you may want to look at the specs on the new ZO6.

Chevrolet Corvette Z06
Best lap time 1:32.75
Best lap average speed (mph) 73.0
0-60 mph/quarter-mile (sec) 4.1/12.0
Braking 70-0 mph (ft) 149
Cornering l/r (g) 1.10/1.09
Weight (lb) 3147
Distribution f/r (%) 50.9/49.1
Top speed (mph) 198

Ford GT
Best lap time 1:32.45
Best lap average speed (mph) 73.2
0-60 mph/quarter-mile (sec) 3.8/12.2
Braking 70-0 mph (ft) 156
Cornering l/r (g) 1.03/1.01
Weight (lb) 3489
Distribution f/r (%) 43.4/56.6
Top speed (mph) 205

At less than half the price of the GT, the Corvette is VERY close to the GT in every category. If GM releases the "Blue Devil", they will have the GT beat... by quite a bit.

I've had the chance to ride in an Aveo. It is not the shitbox that you think it is. I don't need to curl myself into a pretzel to get into it, it actually has some decent room, and it's overall a nice car.

Granted, it's not going to accelarate or handle like a Ferrari, but it's simple, basic transportation. What some people want. It even comes with an MP3 stereo.

My 20 year old, $7000 Buick puts 498hp AT THE REAR WHEELS with the help of a turbo and a little nitrous...(That's approx 650hp at the flywheel.)
Without the nitrous, it makes almost 400hp at the wheels...(Approx 500 at the flywheel.)

Here's a video from about two weeks ago...
