Is the supercharger safe to go on a stock engine with 130,000kms? i want the 2.6 because i have plans for rebuilding. hence the big superchager i will be running the 9psi pully. so i don't go over the safe limit.

Also what the difference between the IRS on the Cobras, and the gt's? is it worth while in the end to do a swap? or is it just a reciepe to more problems?

I can't say what miles 130,000kms is but it sounds like a lot and it would depend on how soon you are going to rebuild?? Running 9psi would be kinda of safe, thats what I beleive termies run stock but they have a lower compression to compensate. As for the IRS and solid axle depends on you a solid axle will give you better times on the 1/4 and an IRS will dominate the track. The swap is relatively easy only a couple of fabrications or mods im sure there is a thread about a IRS swap??

depending on the tune and power it will last a while mileage is not that big a deal, DON'T SWAP TO AN IRS irs breaks like hell drag racing, the stocker will hold more power than most give it credit for but the best swap you could do is a 9 inch or 31 spline, if you want handling seek it else were springs, sway bars, struts, control arms what ever.

turbo... you think 15 #s is ok? it might be for a lil while but thats quite a bit for that stock shortblock. Id rather go with heads/cams for the extra power that will be safe and more efficient than just go 15#'s right off the bat. Im a firm believer in these stock shortblocks being tougher than credit given but i also think that efficiently gaining the numbers will prolong the life.

I agree, dont go IRS even for the corners. Although it is a great system, it is easier and cheaper in most cases to build up you solit rear. I am runing the Steeda 5 link and it handles the corners amazing

The 2.6 would be out of its efficiency range by a tad... but damn im jealous :sorry i went with the 2.1 cause i didnt want to get a forged block... well that didn't last long when mine blew up lol!

15 psi is HUGE. You can make enough power to snap your stock rods with 9psi easy. I wouldn't go anywhere 15psi with a stock shortblock unless you really badly want to break it, or you are REALLY soft footed. But whats the point of the power if you can't use it?
