    I figured I’d stick with them until they give me issues. I changed so many things on the car, I just didn’t even think about doing them until late in the build. If I start experiencing issues with breaking up, then I’ll go to a smart coil or something.

    Alternator goes in the valley, The throttle body will be reduced to 3” so it’ll clear.

    Update! Car is in the fab shop getting all the cold side piping done, the down pipe and exhaust, having quick disconnected put on in the bumper for easy on/off, tubular core support as well. Hopefully have it back at the end of the week.

    This treadstone IC is MASSIVE btw! But we are making it work!

    Above are some update status pictures of the Cobra. Going to route brake lines, install the Cobra rear brake son the 8.8, and hopefully finish up the Holley wiring and dash installation this weekend. Once all that is finished, it will almost be time to make some Oil Pressure! It has been almost a year since this project as started, and its finally coming to an end.

    Unfortunately, the way it is looking right now, I will be posting it for sale after I get a little bit of enjoyment from the car and make sure everything is 100%. I have taken a new job in the last few months, and I am hardly home enough to be able to enjoy it. It kills me to think about selling it, but life happens sometimes. Its not a for certain thing, but highly possible..

    Now, what would you guys think a fair price for this car would be? it rolled 20k miles the day the valvespring failed, (and obviously hasn't went up sense then LOL).
    03 Silver Metallic, factory spoiler delete, 20k miles. (I am planning to put around 500-1000miles on the car before selling, just to verify no issues, and everything is solid.)

    -Teksid block std bore, Molnar power Adder Plus rods, Diamond Mod2k, 10:1, hand ported heads, heads completely gone through, PAC springs/retainers, upgraded exh seats, +.5mm Valves, Todd Warren bullet cams, ARP 2000 Head studs, ARP 2000 Rod Bolts, Wonder racing complete timing set, billet guides, HD chains, etc. Sullivan intake manifold, Wilson 102mm TB

    -1000hp TH400, JW SFI Bell, JW Flexplate, (im not very up to speed on transmission stuff, I will get the build sheet), CCI Driveshaft, strange billet yoke, 1350s, stifflers trans mount.

    -CG fab hot side, Presicion 46mm gate, motion C02, Tial BOV, FI 80/96 V2 1.10 A/R, Treadstone IC, Custom shrouded rad w/fan, Vibrant HD bands.

    Strange front race brakes, racecraft 2” drop spindles, complete ABS delete, new lines routed, Strange front coilovers, Team Z K-member, Z bumpsteer, Strange master Cylinder, stran Cobra rear brakes, 8.8, 3.55 w/ trutrac, 31 spline, ARP Studs, Weld V-Series rear, Weld RTS front, Viking double adjustable rear coilovers spec'd by Jon Pavia, subframe connectors, welded tubes, Martys control arms.

    Behind bars 14 gal aluminum tank, sullivan rails, Aeromotive reg, Aeromotive Brushless 5.0 pump (latest and greatest, 1600whp capable on e85), Holley 160s.

    Holley HP EFI, Holley 7.5" Dash, all electronics and controllers are Holley.

    Keep the car man, you'll get pennies on the dollar to what you have invested. There is absolutely zero sense in going through all this time and effort to build a car, to then immediately sell it because of a job change. I'd sell that fancy boat before I sold my car lol.

    Only time I’ll the boat, is when I’m ready to buy a bigger one lol!

    But ya, I know I’d lose my ass if I do decide to get out of the car. It has just crossed my mind. We will see once it actually runs. I may just fall back in love with it when I hear it start for the first time!
