Superformance’s “E-Rod Cobra” wins Editor’s Choice Award from Kit Car Builder Magazine April 2010. 

Kit Car Builder magazine bestowed its “Editor’s Choice Award” to Lance and Deborah Stander of Superformance for their innovative application of GMPP’s E-Rod engine package in a Cobra Roadster. 

When presenting the award on April 24 at the Association of Handcrafted Automobiles show at the NHRA Museum in Pomona, California, Steve Temple of Kit Car Builder magazine noted that, “The E-Rod crate engine gives kit builders the freedom to build a specialty car that not only passes emissions, but also has plenty of power for the enthusiast. And Superformance is leading the way in showing how this new engine can be fitted into a Cobra. We look forward to seeing this application in a wide variety of kit and project vehicles.” 

The new E-Rod 6.2-liter LS3 crate engine meets all current emissions standards, simplifying registration procedures for kit builders, and delivers 430 hp and 424 lb./ft. of torque. It also includes GMPP’s LS3 engine wiring harness, engine control module, exhaust manifolds, catalytic converters, oxygen sensors and sensor bosses, fuel tank evaporative emissions canister, mass airflow sensor and sensor boss, accelerator pedal and an air filter.
