…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Sniper?


Though I doubt a cobra and a viper have ever come together to mate in nature, the result of this unholy matrimony looks pretty darn good to me!

Called the “Sniper”, it’s a 1994 SVT Cobra Mustang that now has the heart and soul of a V10 Viper engine transplanted within, and twin-turbos on top of the whole thing because apparently, 500 horses just isn’t enough.

To fit the monster mill into the engine bay of the ‘stang, CobraScott (his TheTurboForums nickname) moved the firewall back 10 inches, built a custom k-member, custom trans mount, and added a 10-point cage to the inside for safety. (Basically a must-have when your car is making more horsepower than a train!)

Scott also added twin T-76 turbos, Alcon brakes, coilover suspension and Forgeline wheels to round out the package, though I wonder if he’ll need anything more than a gas pedal, a seatbelt and a smile.

The project isn’t finished just yet, but it’s coming along nicely, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this sniper picking off adversaries on the streets in no time.

…Iguanas belong on your walls?


Here’s wallpaper that is sure to add some flavor to your room of choice. Covered in iguanas, plants, birds and bugs, the dark on light paper is called Iguana and is made by Timorous Beasties, a company specializing in all sorts of crazy wallpaper designs. This may be just the thing your drab room needs to get a little life flowing again, and I’m sure Feng Shui would definitely agree with this critter-paper’s use of energy and its harmony with nature.
