654/608

12psi of boost
22 degrees of timing
Stock headers, stock cats, OEM KR muflers

Pretty pleased with it for being a relatively mild combo. The new injectors are OEM from the '13 GT500. Fuel pumps still stock. It would need larger pumps for more boost. It is good enough for now. Last dyno tune it was making in the 540rwhp range on the pullied stock blower.

Haven't driven it yet. Had a buddy drive it down for the tune while I ducked out of the office to go watch. Should be a fun weekend. :-D

Sounds fair. 8-)

I had it in a car show yesterday. Serpents in the Garden at the LA Arboretum. 3 of us 07 GT500s and about 21 Cobra kit cars. I believe 2 were real, one was a 2011 CSX build. Not sure how the collectibility of those cars is going to shake out.

I think that with the CSXs it just depends on the build specs, the better the build, the better the resale. I don't think "collectable" will ever be applied to them , but to drive a fun car for 5 or 10 years and then get a premium when you sell -- not bad. With the SPFs, because Shelby "authorized" them (after losing his suit against SPF and saying he would keep suing until SPF had no more money to defend and SPF offered him a cut on each car to stop the suits), folks are making money on SPF resales, but an SPF roller only costs $50K (the last time I checked), and the CSX roller costs a bunch more.

Your car looks great. :clap:

A 100 HP bump? You should be really pleased. Imagine the effort and cost to get that much on an N/A car that was already making over 500
