Default 04 SVT Cobra stock motor limits?

I should know the answer to this question, but I do not.

I am guessing about 650ish hp?

Would a Kenne bell kit with all the Bells and whistles (fuel upgrades, injectors etc.) be enough to push it to it's limits (safely) and keep things together for a long time?

Looking at a pretty sweet deal on an 04 SVT Cobra w/18k miles on it...

I always knew their motors were forged, but I do not know how of their exact limits. Don't want to get ahead of myself

the limit is whatever you dyno tuner can put it at safely with good a/f etc...im at 650 it could be pushed plenty more but i rather have my car last then wear it out quicker with more power

I've seen a few 03/04 Cobra's pushing around 1,000 rwhp (twin turbo's) where the stock valve cover's have never been removed!!

I have a friend with a 04 CO pushing 750 rwhp with a F1a!!!

I ran 650+ very hard every weekend on the street and track, and DD the car for over a year before i had a pump go bad on a run...Not even any stock parts fault... so yeah they can take a beating as Black said as long as you have a good tuner.

uuumm...

Holy ****!!

I have to really think about this one.. 650whp is a ton of power. I'll have to obviously park it during the winter rofl

I will go take a look at it this week sometime, it's about an hour away in another city.

I just got my new ride and it's amazing during the winter, but I am gonna have to put some major money to make it fast and it's not gonna be anywhere near 650whp...

$22k.. what a friggin' steal! I am thinking it's modded if I think it's the one I seen before..
