This is kinda the info I was looking for. I know nothing about turbos and what mm would be best for this car.

This is what I'm looking at but I dont know that I can make myself drop 7 large on a turbo when the car already has boost.
well, it ain't cheap, and I'm not a huge fan of PTK, but you'd be hard pressed to replicate it for less than $4-5k, and it'll take a fair amount of time/hassle hunting down all the parts and actually having the work done.

they're obviously making some money off the setup, but if you walked up to me with $6,500 and said, "replicate this exactly", I'd probably turn it down.

damn that kit looks like fun! if i had a 2003/2004 cobra, i would be on that! i'm sure that manny/jeremy have something similar, too! i think that they've already done a turbo '03/'04 cobra, if i'm not mistaken.

Keep in mind you can sell the eaton to offset the costs and you will also need to buy an NA cobra intake, throttle body and complete setup with EGR, hoses, harness, relocate alternator, front accessory changes, etc......


Your best bet is to sell the eaton and buy a Kenne Bell. you can go upwards of 750hp with that kit and 24lbs of boost.

Good luck.

Two things:
The stock eaton will only net you 500 to 600 bucks.
I would want to keep all parts to return the car back to stock.
