Going 10's in a Day?


In the world of drag racing the goal of a 10sec was a goal for many. For Jose and his 03 Cobra it was just a matter of 5 hours.
Take a trip back to April of 09 and a drive out to Terrell, TX, that is where Jose found his black Cobra with a already Strange 9 Rear End installed and the perfect platform for his new project.

Now back to a afternoon at Arrow Ford where himself and Wesley Espinosa with the help from Brain Odom plan to turn this almost stock Cobra into a a Venomous Snake. With the followiing mod list being installed besides the work done on the blower, the installing of the cage and the heat exchanger it seems like a busy 5 hrs.

Stock Long Block and Blower (Stiegemeier stage 3 port)
Kooks Long Tubes and O/R X pipe with Bassani Catback
2.76 upper pulley with stock lower (14.5 psi)
Accufab TB and Plenum with JLT High boost cold air kit
60# injectors, Aeromotive fuel rails, twin Ford GT supercar pumps, KB boost-a-pump
Custom HPP heat exchanger with 2 fans and Canton Expansion Tank

Stock T-56 with liberty 26 spline input shaft and Ram 900 Clutch
Aluminum Driveshaft
Strange 9 inch with 35 spline axles 4.11 gears

Front suspension
Custom HPP tubular K-member and a-arm kit, MM coil over kit up front with Lakewood 70/30 struts, steeda bumpsteer kit, swaybar removed, MM cc plates

Rear suspension
MM lower adjustable HD control arms, BMR adj upper control arms, 98 GT springs, Eibach rear sway bar, lakewood 50/50 shocks, subframe connectors

Interior
Rear seat delete, stock front seats, wolfe racecraft cage, MGW orange shifter and "F'in Fast" MGW shift knob

Wheels and Tires are Billet Specialties street lites with M/T ET street slicks with M/T front runners.
Next, a very safe tune from HPP help dyno the Cobra to a impressive 550RWHP/500RWTQ. To make sure that everything is in working order a trip down to Houton Raceway to get that all important 1/4mile time. Going 10.89 @129mph makes a afternoon of installing seem worth it.

Lastly, the future for Jose and his Cobra are to either Sell it or add the following mods:
100 shot of nitrous, put in Strange adjustable shocks and struts, put a Kirkey aluminum seat in it, and either a T-56 magnum or a C-4.

Very nice! But for your own sake Jose, do NOT get a kirkey, they're like sitting on a park bench.
