I think you'll blow your turbo before you blow your short block. Assuming you tune it correctly and give it plenty of fuel and the 06 cobra.

jbro2 i will have to look in to the specs a little closer, good looking out.

Castor Troy uh, not without a lot of work...i am going to assume that it has a T3 exhaust flange, meaning you're going to need either an adapter or a new manifold.

additionally you'll probably need to put a different flange on your downpipe, and completely redo your intake.

doable, but not worth it...

christian900se I would imagine the exhaust flange being different. I can't see this turbo bolting on, but if you post some links or pictures it would help!
