im just too torn between the 2 ideas, im pretty much fed up with how loud the car is right now, and the fact the power comes on so strong theres no traction to speak of.

im toying with the idea of selling the whipple, and all the 03/04 swap parts, and getting a T76 hellion kit, and calling it a day.

my friend just put one on his, he had a 2.8H and MAN did that thing get quiet. last night im riding in my friends supra right behind him, he starts break boosting, lets off the brake, mats it, and its almost silent.

his car still rides like **** because it has the same K member i so.

thinking about putting the full interior back in to regain what little comfort the car had to begin with, and doing the hellion.

im just worried im not going to be happy once again.

thoughts?

I think the turbo would definately make the car more enjoyable on the street. I say go for it. You'll make more power at the same pressure level, and on pump gas at that. The car will be docile (nearly stock like) to drive around town, and be deadly once you lay the go pedal down. Turbos really are the best power adder. I think its a good idea. Toning the exhaust down is just a bonus!

Well I can tell you that you will not be dissapointed with Hellion.
I have had mine for 3yrs know and still love it. Every year I add alittle more to her though. By the middle of next week I will be on the dyno at HPP and the car should make something in the mid 8XX's to low 9XX. I drive this car everyday im in town or not working. That includes 3-400 mile road trips. Before this last round of upgrades I had 3 tunes in the car 91oct=550rwhp,93oct=675rwhp,101oct=715rwhp with a max of 21#'s
The car is very quite driving normal. My exhaust is alittle different though,it is a straight 3" off the downpipe with a magnaflow flow thru dumped in front of the IRS.:D
This pic is old...Now the car has a sullivan lower and HPP upper. I don't have any new pix because the car is still at HPP. The car is done except the 4" electric cut out is on back order.

how do you not like turbo's, they're the ****, no getting around it.

having a loud ****in car that everybody just stares at and gets tons of police attention gets old, you dont have longtubes, so i dont think you understand how insanely loud this thing is.

plus sneaking up on somebody, and them thinking your a stock cobra, no exhaust nothing, and they dont know your 700+RWHP until after you've honked it off and starting to spool.

im a street racer, i like to lay low until the last minute, pulling into a parking lot with a loud ass car is going to get everybodies attention, blower belt screaming, they're gonna know its a badass car.

pull in with a hellion, they wont know its not a GT until its way too late.

I say do it. I think that maybe a bigger turbo wouldn't be bad so you would have more room for growth should you decide you want to. If anything get the kit and swap the turbos down the road if you want more power. Sleeper effect FTW!

was never against turbo's, i was against the procharger kit for the 03/04 cobra because they perform like **** on these cars.

nothing wrong with a TT if you dont mind, and have the $$ to put up with the problems the turbo's are always going to have, and dont mind waiting for the boost.

forced induction is like sex, the longer you wait, the better it is, you can go down to the street corner and immediatly get that hooker (nitrous, or twins screw), or you can wait for the right one, and its going to rock your world.

^^^ any man should be able to understand that.

so moral of the story turbo = best pussy, lol.

KC just a question. What are the pros/cons of two smaller turbos and the pros/cons of one larger turbo on a cobra? And one more question how much psi are you planning on running?
