    Should I save up and wait for a wrecked 03 Cobra to swap parts into the Bab?

    I could sell off my built motor/tranny and vortech set up for a decent amount...
    Save up some and find a wrecked Cobra for around 9-10k...

    Swap in the interior.... swap the motor/tranny.

    I haven't looked into the swaps but I can't see it being tooooo hard having a complete car and wiring.

    (maybe I should look into them now)

    Just a pullied stock blower Cobra will make near the same horsepower I do right now...

    I could always pulley down and run more boost on my Vortech.. but It'd be nice to have a whippled termi motor making 600 hp really reliably...

    Dumb idea? :dunno: :dunno:

    Eh I've thought about that...


    My motor is rebuilt just recently.... so its basically a low mileaged motor BUT its still got 90k on it.


    I don't know... I'm just thinking bout what I want to do while the cars in the shop for the tranny work.

    why not sell the vortech, then save some dough and get a KB since you already have a built motor...oh and that 9-10 grand is just the motor and maybe the tranny too, not the entire car. or if you found one for that price, you are damned lucky.

    oh and i want your intercooler if you switch setups. :)

    If I recall right.. the KB makes less power than Vortech...




    It just amazes me that a pretty much stock 03 Corba (pulley/tune) can make the power I make... and still have A/C , and run VERY VERY reliable.

    My car is like race car status... loud as hell.... built motor.. vortech etc.
