Livernois Tuned – CobraBob’s Ford Edge Sport

Family Truckster

When you really have to get the groceries.

By SID297

Once you’ve owned a Terminator you’ll never be the same man again.  No matter what car you get next you’re always going to be longing for the raw-untamed fury that was SVT’s final Cobra (at least for the time being).  So what happens when you have to do the responsible thing and buy a new ride that’s a little more family friendly than a Snake Car?  Well if you’re long-time SVTP Member CobraBob (“Bob Arthur”) you turn to the 2.7L Twin-Turbo Ford Edge Sport.

No More 3rd Party Pic Hosting on SVTP

Visual Distress

By SID297

If you have visited any forums over the past few months you may have noticed what I have lovingly termed the “Picocalypse”.  In short one of the major 3rd Party photo hosting sites decided to change their hosting policies and block all hotlinked images.  What that means is that every photo that member hosted on Photobucket and then posted on the forum was essentially lost.

This upgrade kit sounds like exactly what the twin-screw market has been looking for, and it’s going to be very interesting to see how far early adopters will be able to push the performance envelope.

Check out the full details below, and give Lethal Performance a call ordering details.

Terminator FAQs & SVTP Info

Data Dump

Cobra Bob helps users get a head start.

By SID297

Many feel that the 2003-2004 SVT Mustang Cobra Terminator was the last true muscle car.  It certainly ticks all the right boxes and every Mustang model since has successively lost more and more of the visceral performance feeling that was the defining driving dynamic of the Terminator.  That unmatched driving experience attracts new buyers for these cars everyday, many of which who lack even basic knowledge about their new Pony cars.  That’s where SVTP Member Cobra Bob steps into the picture.
