    Hey guys I've recently purchased this 03 SB hard top built by whitedevil95. I take possession of it next week. It's my 3rd cobra and 2nd terminator, still have an 03 DSG vert. However, this hard top is my first car above 500rwhp. Engine is set up as follows: TVS 2.3L Gen 2 Aftermarket Supercharger w/ 3.0 lb upper pulley /4.0 lb metco lower pulley. VMP GT500 Throttle Body. Whipple Crusher Intake with GT500 Mass Air Flow Sensor. Full Metco Double Bearing Idlers.

    I'm interested in getting a back up tune, ideally 91 octane, just incase I end up getting myself out somewhere with no E85 or if I want to take the car to KC or Springfield mo from Wichita.

    The car is set up with a 3" upper and a 4lb lower, is there an upper pulley big enough to slow the blower down for 91 without having to swap the lower? I'll have 04 sleeper do his magic to the tune.


    Thanks for your help!

    Thank you very much! I'm excited to get it.

    I didn’t think about that, it would have needed a 91 time since it was a California car.

    I’m not sure exactly what’s on the x4, I’ll have to get with the seller, but it wasn’t mentioned. I’ll be hands on mid week next week. It would be great if it was already present on the handheld unit.

    I spoke with the current owner, the car has evolved past the 91 tune so its out for now. I'll get the 3.3 ordered and get it re-tuned for 91.

    Awesome car and Congrats!

    What side of Wichita are you on? I'm in Andover and there are at least 2 other 04 cobra's near me.

    I'm on the east side. We are very close. I've been chatting with Joe who owns a yellow cobra in Andover. I'm looking forward to meeting up with some locals.

    Where are you getting your fuel? I've been getting 93 octane from jumpstart for my DSG 03 termi and I know they have E85 and E95(?) on the west side. Anywhere else selling E85 or race gas at the pump?

    I live within a mile of Joe and the Jumpstart at 21 and Andover road. They have 93 (E30) and E85 there so E85 is in my future! There is also a nice RF cobra in my housing development.
