Drove the Cobra to a local tuner last night cause a friend was going on the dyno to get a custom flash. There were several people there asking me about stuff on my car. Even this other 03 Cobra owner, very annoying guy, about a 60yr old redneck guy kept talking about his car was "nosing over and falling on its face at the top of third". The redneck guy just kept blabbering. There was 2 younger guys walking around with him asking lots of less annoying questions (my intercooler, 2.76 pulley, ported blower...), thought they were acquainted, assumed they came up in his Cobra. Anyway my friend got tuned, was not happy with the results, I chatted for a bit more and then took off. About 2 miles down the road this black 3000GT pulls out of a side street just as I pass and flies up on my bumper as I slow to make a left turn. I know it is on at this time. I hold it in 2nd to let him get lined up and then he jumps. I wind 2nd and grab 3rd, hold till 6500 and then to 4th as I look in the rearview and see him about 3 cars back, (took like 5 seconds to put him from beside me at wide open throttle to 3 cars back in a barrage of Borla assault.)
I get on the brakes hard to haul it back down to 45 and he comes alongside all thumbs up, turns out it was the two young guys from the dyno shop that were standing near the redneck.
Pulled over and talked he said he was "tuned to the max the stock twin turbos would allow, going aftermarket next week, should be 550 hp then"
I have no knowlegde of 3000GT's and did not have time more to chat as I was blocking the road pulled over next to him on a side street and traffic was coming. He had a passenger too.
Just got the live axle in and my car is pulling hard with no wheel hop at all.
Anybody know more about them?
