“Iron Fist, Lead Foot.”
Duane brought us his beautiful Zinc Yellow 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra to have the factory Eaton M112 supercharger upgraded to something a bit more potent! Up first in the shop, TJ set the Terminator up with a mono-blade ready 2.3L W140AX twin-screw unit from Whipple Superchargers, mono-blade billet throttle body from Accufab, Inc., BA-3000 MAF from SCT Performance, all connected to the existing intake system from JLT Performance, 60ln fuel injectors from DeatschWerks, Boost-a-Pump from Kenne Bell Superchargers, along with all the OEM odds and ends to bring it all together.
With the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, John strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom calibration via SCT Performance’s X4. With 93 octane in the tank, and the Whipple 2.3L delivering 13psi, Vlad increased the 4-valve’s output to a repeatable 593.91whp & 540.33lbft, with a best run of 602.78whp & 542.34lbft! Pretty strong considering this car still has the factory exhaust manifolds and catalytic converters in place. Overall, a great outcome for this Terminator!
