Default Supercharger or 03 Cobra

My Question is that I've been saving for an 03 Cobra and had been planning on buying it in the summer I don't dislike my car now I just wanted the supercharger and ease of more upgrades.

Another mustang owner who goes to school with me is selling his car and supercharger seperately. I'm thinking about buying his supercharger from him instead of the Cobra. He couldn't have used the supercharger for more then 3 months and says it has about 5000 miles on it. He only wants 2,000 for it. What do you guys think?

Obviously I already have a pretty penny in my stang as well.
FYI
The Kit is for a Paxton polished NOVI 1000

If you have money for the Cobra...i'd get that...Novi 1000 only does 5-6 psi

Save up mang

Plus, its easy to make them Cob's go faster with mods

Definitely go for the Cobra. Without forged internals, your doing an injustice to your GT by S/C it, not to mention the headaches it will cause. Buy something that is built to take a S/C from the ground up. This includes the engine, trans, etc.

The Other thing I'm looking at is Debt, Right now I owe 5 on my car. A new Cobra runs say 22-26 Even if I put down 10 I'm still owning 12-16 for the next 5 years.

If you can get a good deal on the blower....just get it! The Cobra is obviously the ultimate machine, but you already have a good amount of mods.

I say go with the supercharger on the GT-- not only will you get to build onto your baby, but you'll have one HELL of a sleeper.

If money is an option, your better bet seems to be the supercharger. And, if you want, you could always get an 07 cobra... save up and sell the supercharged GT later.

Id get that S/C and slap it on, your can is going to quick as hell and itll def. keep you happy and not so much in debt. That cobra would make you happy but then you wouldnt be able to afford the insurance and put gas in it!

I'm not actually sure if its the 1000 or 2000 I wasn't as familure with the Paxtons when I was talking to the guy. It would be nice to have the 2000 but Unless I completly build the bottom end I'll never max the 1000.

I would get the s/c

a lot cheaper than buyin a cobra. w/ the money u saved by not buying a cobra u could make ur GT a lot faster than an 03 Cobra. also remember that parts cost a lot more for a cobra than for a GT I would get a KB for ur GT instead of a Paxton [:'(]

Default RE: Supercharger or 03 Cobra

yeah that would be a good deal for everything. but if u couldve afforded a Cobra u should be able to afford a KB. I love the KBs the are awsome for street racing cuz they produce awsome boost a low RPMs and dont have to wait for the boost to kick in. THats what i would do if had the money just my .02

Sorry for Drooling LOL

I feel more comfort going in debt for a car instead of a supercharger
