Default Supercharger

Here is a picture of a reproduction Cobra I recently worked on for a customer at the shop. This is a really neat car and it is not a kit car either. It was built in England in 1988, with a solid chassis and fiberglass body. Independent rear suspention with adjustable shocks. The spin off wheel locks are the real deal.

The customer wanted this thing to go fast and I was the lucky one to get the job! When it came in it had a 1987 stock 302 EFI HO. We installed Comp camshaft with double roller timing gears, hydraulic roller lifters with roller rockerarms, AFR 185cc cyl heads, headers, 90mm mass air (with a computer air density conversion kit), 75mm throttle body and a Kenny Bell Flowzilla Supercharger.

The only thing left to do on this car is to take it to the dyno and get the computer parameters reset for all this new horsepower. I gotta tell you, this thing is scary! Even without it being dailed in.





p.s. Thats not me in the picture

OH Man! you wouldn't believe the stuff I've worked on. Check this out.



Thats a Pantera (Italian design sports car)with a rear (mid) engine sold by Ford Lincoln Mercury back in the 70's. I actually worked on these at the Dealership when they were just barely out of warranty. Owners of these cars always complained about how they idled. Very rough! But what would you expect from a 351 Clevland with 4 barrel carb?

That reminds me of my mom's ex-boyfriend's car, very rare car and a super fast one at that, the Lamborghini Urraco

Don't have an actual pic of it, but it looks like this:

Yea, your right. It's a DeTomaso. Actually I had forgotten that, thanks for reminding me.

That car looks like a 1960's AC cobra which were all aluminum. the one in the picute is all aluminum[should be]. And has the 427ci engine. 31 were built. 3 of which were used for racing only. if it is made out of fiberglass it is a replica I think. I called my shelby friend back east to verify. He is the guy who bought my two shelby CSXs. He currently owns 12 shelby cars. It is a chery car any whay you look at it. the 427 is a nice engine. with some simple hop ups it can give women orgazms with a simple rev of the engine.
