I have pulled an 03 cobra that had a smaller pulley, full exhaust, intake, and drag radials before. Got him by 2 cars, this was last summer so Im actually faster now that was on 16psi though, this 01 cobra got pulled and I was only running 10psi.

It's 5th- I much rather cruise at 3500rpm than 4100rpm. I appreciate the rest for acceleration, but whatever acceleration was lost with the 3.6 would be negligible to me.

i concur, it would be nice to cruise at a lower rpm in 5th gear.

Yes. Ideally I'd add a 6th gear overdrive.

Gotta ***** a few more posts to be able to pm here..lol

Couple things..

The manifold is only 319 till the end of the month.. Pretty sweet deal considering is gonna be 400ish to get a new victorx and do a custom fab job like rm does and charges 550... least this would be a bolt sorta afair as I don't have a stock rail and such so maybe a little easier for me.. Personally hate the big scripting on the top so maybe file that down and recoat.. Dunno yet... but price is solid.. And looks worthy... so ill prolly go that route since its almost half then buying the rm piece..

Talking to the lady at begi she answered and said she thought the throttle body they had to bolt onto it was a 70 73 02 75mm.. Hopefully that is true.. Don't know if it has the iac stuff or not. Looks like it has some plug on the side... and she quoted me 130 bux for it.. Polished... sounds like a steal as well.. Have you heard of this at all? Won't work or what? 450 for both seems like a steal for the flow and a decently bolt in affair..

I have a link now so a little differently as you running the stock ecu and stuff.. I think ill be swapping to aem or something equivelent soon that'll be able to really run any type of tb or anything for that matter...

Don't really know what I'm asking but curious about the power gains and I have a week before giving a deposit.. But 450 for mani/tb combo if it is indeed 70mm and bolts up sounds so good right now...

Opinions? Any news on the tb?

Pulling a modded 03 cobra is just wrong.

Did you get a stop-n-chat?

I gave him about 3 cars length before I hit it. Flew by him and when he got up next to me at the other light he wouldn't look over even though I was waving to him. Pretty funny stuff

=P Miata FTW
I beat a V6 automatic Firebird in an Odyssey once. Seriously.

I might need you to get me one of these.

It is lower on the list than 100 other things though.
