Ford has always put its all into the SVT Cobra, but this was especially true for 2003. It was one of the most powerful Mustangs up until that point and the Terminator engine laid the path for the Mustang to make even more power later on. Despite current models being more powerful, it is regarded as one of the best Mustangs by many enthusiasts. That being said, there is always room for improvement. One such example of some of the best improvements to be made on a 2003 SVT Terminator Cobra can be seen on an episode of AutotopiaLA.
The owner of this Cobra seems to have started his work with the goal of being subtle as nothing about the car’s appearance is overwhelming. As Alex and Shawn walk around the car small details start to pop out as extraordinary compliments to the original styling. Carbon fiber accents the bumpers, spoiler, and custom looking ground effects. The ride height is no exception to the theme of the car, as it has clearly been lowered but not so much that it could be considered too low. The car rides on CCW replica’s wrapped in 315s.
Alex did go overboard when it comes to performance though, but that is always acceptable. Under the hood is a forged internal engine with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. An Aeromotive fuel pump supplies the E85 fuel and most of the other mods that can be done to a supercharged car have been done. The modifications boosted the power output from 390 to 750-horsepower to the ground.
The Interior keeps with the carbon fiber theme set by the exterior. It is equipped with Sparco racing seats and a Sparco steering wheel, an MGW short throw shifter, and some extra gauges to keep an eye on air/fuel and boost. This Terminator puts some serious power to the ground and looks like it is an absolute blast to drive.
