    I've been thinking about buying a stock 03-04 Cobra but i can't decide which would be the best setup for a street\strip car. Turbo? or Twin Screw? I'd like your opinions and maybe some numbers to support your choice. Thanks

    But if you want a termi i would go turbo. A member had had a 1000+ hp one that ran pretty well. I haven't seen anything to special from the big TS guys

    Both. At once. Be greedy. Just kidding. Why no love for the twin screw???If peak power and efficiency is your only criteria for a good street/strip car, then do what everyone else said and go turbo. But I happen to like Cobras with a mean sounding Whipple or KB, plus it seems so much simpler to just swap superchargers than to install a turbo kit (not sure if that's actually the case), so I'm gonna have to vote twin screw.

    there is truth in this post.


    but if you are stuck on a cobra, go turbo

    budget wise you can pick up a used 2.2TS for less than 2 grand.

    that would be a waste! Hellion makes a great kit, turbohorsepower makes a great kit, HPP I believe builds a great kit. HP makes a great kit.

    What are your goals?

    650 rwhp or less go twin screw, much cheaper

    700+ rwhp or more, go turbo, but be prepared -> $$$

    Hellion would be my choice just make sure you talk to a Turbo owner because with a Turbo alot of responsibility.

    720? that's quite a random number.. :lol:

    You should check out theturboforums.com formerly turbomustangs.com that place has a wealth of knowledge about turbo cars.. and it sounds like you need to do some research.. just be sure to use the search button quite a bit before you start asking dumb questions or you will probably get flamed..
