The Cobra won a 2nd place trophy at the Johnny Q’s car show on Sunday November 17, 2013. Here are some photos and also a photo taken from the show on Nov 9, check out all of the people looking at this gorgeous car.
I took the Cobra in for a Dyno test today at Power by the Hour Performance in Boynton Beach, FL. I was very happy with the results, was about what I expected.
Before changing the intake and carb the results were 295 RWHP. Today we got 318 RWHP which is about 10% increase in power.That means we should be pulling about 380HP and 370ft lbs torque from the motor. You generally lose between 15-20% from the motor to the rear wheels.
Here is a video of the test and the results. Click on image to enlarge.
Results from Dyno testing today: 318 HP and 306 ft lbs torque at the rear wheels.
It was a great weekend for car shows in South Florida. I think there were about 5 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday. We even had a short shower in the early afternoon which almost ruined the show, but we all hung in there until the end, as the showers were brief and the sun came out for rest of the day.
The Cobra got a lot of attention and it was nice talking to so many people who love my car. Here is a photo of me and my award. I’m starting a nice collection of trophy’s, soon I will have to buy a display case for all of them.
Check back every weekend to see where I will be next.
