’97 SVT Cobra Turbo Build

Second Chances

Hurt Motor = Build Oportunity.

By SID297

Most don’t know it, but I have a pretty big soft-spot for SN-95 SVT Cobra Mustangs.  As luck would have it, we seems to be going through a small surge in interest in these cars.  I’ve seen several really nice ones popping up a shows recently, and was honored to award the SVTPerformance.com Editor’s Choice Award at the inaugural Ponies in the Smokies show to Jonathan Catapano’s highly modified Orange 1998 Cobra.  So when I saw that SVTP Member SVT GI (“Jason”) was saving an injured ’97 Cobra I took notice.

Nitrous Powered Coyote build

Fresh Squeezed

Lots of N2O makes up for high altitude.

By SID297

When it comes down to it, basically everything we do to make more power with our engines involves cramming as many oxygen molecules possible in to their cylinders.  However, when dealing with the thinner air found at high-altitudes that job becomes a bit tougher.  Superchargers and turbos make a huge difference, but dollar-for-dollar nothing is more effective at introduce a cool/dense oxygen supply than a bottle of nitrous oxide.

Leaked – The Revised 2018 Mustang

Polarizing Particulars

New Mustang certainly makes a splash.

By SID297

Just a few hours ago SVTP Member StacyStangz posted up a leaked video and a couple screen captures of the newly redesigned 2018 Ford Mustang.  Interestingly, the reaction from the Mustang community has been largely negative.  I suspect it will look much better in person, but this is definitely not the response Ford wanted for the new version of their Pony car.  Not to mention the fact that since this video was leaked it is not supported with any accompanying information.
