Ryan kept things simple on the inside, with the necessary aftermarket gauges, such as a Wideband Commander air/fuel gauge and the requisite boost/vacuum gauge to monitor the ATI-ProCharger F-1A's boost pressure, which we're sure stays at 20 psi with Ryan behind the wheel. A Pro-5.0 shifter boasts a UPR pistol-grip handle to give changes more emphasis from Ryan's right arm.

Instead of playing around with pulleys, Ryan went straight for the jugular by having Justin's Performance Center bolt on an ATI-ProCharger F-1A supercharger combined with an Afco heat exchanger onto the otherwise relatively stock Four-Valve engine. Dual Focus fuel pumps feed the beast via stock lines and rails and 60-lb/hr injectors. Power Surge Performance coaxed out 662 hp and a best of 10.48 at 131 mph using SCT software. Besides driving this Cobra, Ryan now races a '99 Cobra in the NMRA Factory Stock class.
