Wow, 7 years is getting some decent life out of them. Unless you only put about 2500 miles a year on your car. :p

7 years is quite a testament to how little the car is driven and/or how it's driven in general. And here I thought I was doing pretty well getting 3 seasons out of 00 treadwear DRs.

Picked her with the new Gen 4 Crusher;
Bob, as mentioned previously I was very happy with the numbers the KB2.6 put down (720ish/690ish).
I was expecting an improvement, and had my expectation's but this blower exceeded them. I was shooting for 740-750, this thing cranked out 730 on the first pull, After working through some issues; 779hp/757Tq. I really didnt want to push any harder since this motor is stock , with no head stud upgrades. Tried posting dyno vid but file is to big.

Badass! The gen4 std inlet is not too shabby.....but that crusher is in another league when the boost is really let loose on the corn brew. Enjoy!

I bought them used on eBay off a guy in Connecticut. He would do 2 races on them and then sell em.. 4,000 miles I say I did and some fun burnouts

Not exactly today, but over the weekend I purchased my new to me Terminator and drove her home. 1487.5 Miles to get her home, 1 near miss idiot driver, 2 chin scrapes, and 1 night spent outside at a hotel. She's cleaned up and in her new home now.

Also, huge shout out to SatinStang for selling me this beautiful Cobra, I couldn't have asked for one in better condition. Will get some better photos when the weather gets a little nicer, and does anyone have recommendations for a better image hosting site then Photobucket?

Bought a Costco battery to replace my dead Optima battery.
Recharge my AC with refrigerant so now it's blowing ice cold.

Next, I there is a big cars and coffee here (Lubbock Cars and Coffee on FB) coming up on Saturday. Going to try and clean her up by then. Lots of raffle prizes including a trip to SEMA, AR-15, Ceramic coating, Tinting, etc.

Drove mine to Palm Springs on Friday to visit my mom. On the way up IAT's went through the roof. Saturday morning I found the intercooler tank was empty. Long story short we road tripped her new car back to my place so I could grab my truck and trailer. Pulled the blower today and found the culprit. View attachment 1700663View attachment 1700664

Bummer deal! A $2 O-ring that hopefully didn’t cause too much damage.

If you download the SVTP app, you can upload pics right from your phone without the need for a host.

What are you running for an Intercooler setup? Maybe its just the pics but the intercooler tubes look like they're different sizes at each end.
The VMP intercooler. Those are the tubes that adapt the stock intercooler manifold to the larger holes in the intercooler.

Curious to see how this Tera transfer pump works. Anyone have experience with them?

Pulled one of them out to take pictures, going listing it for sale. (DSG Vert)


Also leaning more to installing my new 3.0 whipple on my Mystichrome.

Took the cobra for a quick spin this evening. I think the griptec pulley is holding boost. I couldn't get any traction in 2nd gear (little chilly 52*) so hit 3rd and shot straight up to 21lbs. Unfortunately, I was in town and couldn't bring it to redline to verify it holds.

So far I'm happy with it.

Sounds like you made the right upgrade, Brady. I was always a fan of Reichard Racing upper pulleys, but this GripTec sounds like the real deal.
