hey guys i just bought a 2003 cobra stock. my budget is a litttle tight, what mods should i do? everyone says to get a pullie, intake, exhaust, Fluidyne Heat Exchanger, Fluidyne radiator. Does the car stay reliable with those mods, and how much does that all cost?

The first thing i would do is get full exhaust. Then do a cai of some kind. Then, when you are ready, do the pully swap and you will have to have a tune for that. It all depends on what brands you get, all this work including install would be like from 1500-2000

Oh and btw, i forgot to mention that just with exhaust, intake, and pully swap you will make about 440-480rwhp on the dyno!

Pulley,Intake,exhaust, and a good tune. There is not need for a new radiator, I am still running a stock one in my car and it does just fine. H/E is a good mod but still not necessary. As for reliabillity you don't need to worry about that with just those mods.​

Awesome... Can't remember right at this moment, but someone has a kit that is dual turbos and is pumping around 1600 to 1800 hp for around 7500 dollars. Kit looks sweet. Will have to beef up the whole ride with that.

Limited budget? Try the Steig Stage IV port...unless they have a newer and better design. This was 3 years ago but it cost me $500 total, shipping and everything. Might be more now. Gained 40rwhp at the peak alone from that mod with the same 2.8" pulley. Night and day difference.

IMO, save your money and do the BPU's and skip the port. Save for the Twin Screw.
