851 RWHP Twin Turbo 2004 Cobra
851 RWHP Twin turbo 2004 Cobra built and
tuned by www.precision-autospots.com. Car is daily driven.
Update 5-13-2009 - The Mustang has just gone over an engine
freshup as it had over 30k miles on it and making over 800 rwhp!! During
this time the Sullivan intake was removed and a Ported Mach 1 intake took
its place. It now makes 800 rwhp and 725 torque at 19 psi on pump 93. It
is down about 25 hp on the top end but it picked up over 100 torque and 90
rwhp at 4500 RPM! The Transmission and the rear-end are still mostly
stock. The car was just delivered back to its owner in Florida and it got
23 MPG with the AC on doing about 80 MPH. No new 116/93 mix gas numbers.
2008 - Owner reports getting 25 MPG still on the highway. No new track
times and owner has no plans to take back to the track. After all, this is
his beater ;)
2-24-08 // Car now makes over 925 RWHP on 116/93 mix gas. Owner called
Precision the other day to say he handed a ZX-14 its ass from a roll. And
it was only set to about 850 rwhp he said. Amazing car!
Now about the track times. Look, the owner had just spent a fair amount of
money and these were the only runs he made ever with the car and quite
honestly, he did want to break anything. Ford built a great driveline, but
more than doubling the power output tends to make you carefull with your
car. He was not going for anything steller, just a time. The mid 11 sec
pass was on about 675 rwhp setting. The owner used to have a 8 sec. turbo Fox body, so he is not an idiot when
it comes to fast cars. I have seen stockish Cobras grenade their IRS at a
track so to call this guy an idiot, or rag on the shop for protecting his
high HP's stock rearend and tranny just really is not fair.

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
