    Would You Purchase a Re-Painted Terminator?

    I'd buy a repaint in the oem color. Personally: if I wanted a non oem color I'd turbo/coyote swap an auto v6 and do a feauxbra

    Fuel Economy?

    3.31 is better for cruising mileage. Doubt you'd ever save enough gas to make swapping gears worth it.

    Boost gauge no longer working

    could the bypass be stuck open?

    Vmp 2.65r

    Once I get it done, sticky tires are going to be obtained. The nittos turn loose pretty easy already lol

    Pullied stocker. Pretty much doubling my boost lmao

    Vmp 2.65r

    Head unit, pulley, gt500 tb. I already have a carbon fiber jlt cai, and I'm probably going to move to an aftermarket ecu so new maf isn't a benefit

    Got mine ordered. Tracking shows it arriving tomorrow.

    Gt500 likely

    Vmp 2.65r

    Yeah, I'm probably going to order one of them come Monday. Already have a jlt intake, so it's a better deal than $600 off the kit.

    Question about Dyno results

    Torque is way down on the 2nd chart. That's why it feels slower. Should be the other way around with more airflow and e85. I suspect tune is way too conservative

    Who wants to win a $500 Lethal Performance gift card???

    I'll try most anything once I SHOP WITH LETHAL

    Car revved itself up to 8k rpm’s , turned it off won’t start now, only crank.

    Wonder if a major vacuum leak might be the issue. You'd be getting a bunch of unmetered air so not enough fuel to start the engine. If the throttle isn't stuck open that's the only other thing that makes sense yo me.

    Looking for advice on high quality heater core. Don't want to replace this PITA again.

    I doubt there are any available that are measurably better. If you don't drive much in the cold, best to just bypass it.

    Vmp 2.65r

    Maybe one of the folks that's done it will chime in. I'm going off of info from someone else about the intercooler being an impediment to significantly exceeding 800. For 30 psi to make 1k hp, you'd need roughly 350hp naturally aspirated. Tall order for a 281 @ 8.5 static compression ratio...

    Vmp 2.65r

    Kinda my point....800ish hp is about as much as you're gonna get with the factory intercooler and stock motor. If you're looking for the most power possible (which the op is) there are better choices than a blower swap is all I'm trying to say.

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    Agreed. Found a 2020 used about an hour from me. They're asking $14k over msrp(lol), but I may ride down there this week and try it out.

    Vmp 2.65r

    All true. Also true: $5500 for the blower and another $1800 for the intercooler and adapter block. At that point, you're not too far from a hellion turbo kit, or less for a more budget friendly one. Bunch of TVS2650s doing 800+ on stock motor?

    Vmp 2.65r

    For max power, go turbo. The intercooler under the blower is a limit to power and one reason you rarely see 800hp+ terminators. If you want to stick with a blower on top, gonna need to rebuild the engine for more compression, ported heads, cams etc to exceed 800. There's a gen3r out there on...

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    I might be able to convince them to let me drive the new one they have coming in, which is carbonized gray with black roof. It's a 21 model afaik. I want twisted orange with black stripes.

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    So far, I've done the following: rebuilt a T56 for it Full urethane rear suspension Rebuilt rear end with eaton true trac I've paid for some other stuff to be done as well, but nothing major. I think the best thing for me to do is proceed with making the cobra what I want it to be and put in...

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    I bought the cobra in 2016 with 93k on it. Today it has 99,935. Def leaning GT500

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    I doubt mine will ever be a highly valued car. It's almost at 100K miles right now, and missing many original parts. It's a driver, not a collector piece.

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    It's not about affording to keep them both. I have too many vehicles lol, and no sense in me keeping the cobra if i get the 500. I could pass the cobra on to someone else who would drive it and enjoy it.

    Get a GT500 or keep the cobra?

    I'm kinda tired of the third pedal TBH. It's def a tough call, which if nothing else speaks to the appeal of the cobra.
