You are looking at an auction for a 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra coupe.

This amazing car features a DOHC 4.6 liter supercharged V8. Power is transmitted through a Tremec T-56 6-speed transmission. Stock hp was underrated at 390. With the mods listed below, this car has around 450 horsepower.

This was my daily driver for 5 years and I purchased it with 38k miles and now it has 91k. Car has been stored in garage with an occasional start for the last 1.5 years).

I drove to school almost every weekday and it was 75% highway driving. The car has never been raced and was never beaten up on. Being my daily driver, I never wanted to take a risk and take it to the track.

Oil has been changed every 3k miles and I have used Mobil 1 synthetic since I owned the car.

Tires are 275/40R17 all around. Two are Fuzion Zri and two are Sumitomo HTRZ. Tires have around 7000 miles on them.

The car was modded a little and was all done before I bought it (except for the clutch and stereo). Mods are as follows:

  • 2.93" supercharger pulley
  • Flowmaster catback exhaust
  • Densecharger cold-air intake
  • Spec stage II clutch kit (15k miles ago)
  • Dual CD Receiver w/ bluetooth and iPod connectivity
  • CDT Audio component speakers all the way around with MB Quart 4-channel amplifier
  • Redtop Optima battery (2 years ago)

New parts and completed maintenance:

  • New alternator from Autozone (has about 5 miles on it)
  • New headlights w/ xenon bulbs (Just installed before this listing)
  • Eaton Supercharger oil change (20k miles ago)
  • Engine and intercooler coolant (10k miles ago)
  • Intercooler electric water pump (10k miles ago)
  • Transmission fluid change (15k miles ago)
  • Differential fluid change (40k miles ago)
  • Brake pads and rotors (10k miles ago)

I am a mechanically inclined person so this car was has been maintained well and runs almost flawlessly.

The main issue with this vehicle is the paint. With all the highway driving I did, the car experienced a few paint chips and love bug damage. The plastic components are also experiencing some fading. I tried to fix some of the chips myself and did not do too well.

This car will need a new paint job and I received a quote from Maaco for a base/clear with all the chip repairs and sealant for 1500.

Here is a list of the issues with this car:

  • Needs paint job to repair chips and fading (see pics)
  • 1.5" crack/tear in bottom of front bumper cover (pictured)
  • 3rd brake light is cracked on each side. This is a common issue with these cars. I have the vinyl repair cover ready to be installed. This will make it look like new without replacing the light. This light is still moisture free.
  • AC clutch squeaks every so often when AC is on. Cold air still blows. Most likely a bearing or clutch issue. A bearing is $14 and clutch is around $90.
  • Clutch pedal has a small section of the rubber missing on the left side

This is a great car and very fun to drive. I wish I could paint it and keep it myself, but I would like to purchase a home.

Car is located in Largo, FL (near Clearwater and Tampa). Pickup is preferred but buyer-paid shipping is an option as well.

Please text, call, or email me with any inquiries. 239 699 8745

Ford EcoBoost smashes records at Daytona

Thu, 10 Oct 2013 11:30:00 EST

Some mighty machines have lapped the banks of the Daytona International Speedway over the years: thunderous V8-powered stock cars, Le Mans-conquering Group C prototypes, open-wheel Champ Cars, knee-dragging superbikes... heck, the infield lake has even hosted powerboat racing. But this - this is the fastest car ever to lap the legendary raceway.
What you're looking at is the new Daytona Prototype being prepared by Riley Technologies for the new United SportsCar Championship. The car, released just last week, is powered by a new 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 from Ford's EcoBoost family, and just obliterated the top speed at the track with a blistering 222.971 miles per hour through the traps.
That's enough to annihilate the previous record that was set, also under Ford power, by Bill Elliott while placing his Thunderbird on pole for the 1987 Daytona 500 that he would go on to win. His 210.364 mph record had stood for 26 years until now.

Google's new Android Autos OS unveiled, will be in cars this year [w/video]

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:59:00 EST

Connected cars are coming en-masse. We know this much. How, though, remains something of an open question, especially as two of the world's largest tech companies are preparing to battle for control of your car's dashboard. On the one hand, we have Apple and its CarPlay system. And now, we know what Google has been working on with Auto Link.
Its new name is Android Auto, and yes, it's based off the Android architecture that is the primary challenger to Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Announced at Google's I/O conference today, Android Auto functions similarly to CarPlay - owners will need to plug their smartphones into their cars to access the full breadth of capability.
In Android Auto's case, that means a wealth of voice controls to limit distracted driving. Google's marquee apps will be available when the interface arrives in production models later this year, including Google Play Music, Google Maps and voice-activated texting and text playback. Meanwhile, developers will be able to begin designing custom apps for the new system via an upcoming software development kit.

Four Wheeler crowns Ultimate Factory 4x4... who wins?

Thu, 15 Nov 2012 11:31:00 EST

Nearly every automaker doing business in the SUV or pickup truck segments offers a package designed to improve the off-road capabilities of its wares. But, of course, not all such factory kits are created equal. How, then, to separate the wheat from the chaff? Gather each of them up and put them through their paces, naturally.
The folks from Four Wheeler and joined forces to run just such a comparison test, with the winner named the Ultimate Factory 4x4. A total of seven vehicles showed up to the fight: the 2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2012 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X and Xterra PRO-4X, 2012 Ram Power Wagon, and 2012 Toyota 4Runner Trail and Tacoma TRD T|X Baja Series.
With the contestants in place, the whole crew put each vehicle through a battery of tests that included skidpad and acceleration measurements, a hillclimb, a rocky stairstep course and a rock garden. Considering the nature of the beasts, on-road ride and comfort were not part of the routine.
