Here's how I get to the track (45 miles one way)
October '99

My Cobra has run a best time of 12.25 seconds at 110.9 mph on 8.5" slicks with my current combo listed below and 11.96 seconds at 111.77 with cats removed.

The motor is finally back together after being torn down to the short block in quest of quicker times at the track. The Twisted Wedges have received an AFM Stage III porting, the intakes have been Extrude Hone Power Flowed, the valve train has been changed to stud-mounted rockers for higher (6500) rpm operation and the mandatory fuel system upgrades have been performed.

With the help of these additional mods, a Programmable Management System (PMS) from AFM, and the driving skill of Brian Meyer, my Cobra picked up 3 mph and the E.T. was reduced by 0.28 seconds it's first time to the track this year. My Cobra still retains all smog equipment and easily passes federal emissions.
