Max “You Mad Bro” Nielsen ’97 Cobra

Max is a long time friend/ customer / employee / supporter of HPS and all that we are about. Max originally came to us for a custom tune on his Cobra when it still employed a stock engine with just some mild bolt-ons. The next step for Max was the install of a mild wet nitrous kit where he once again called upon us for the ECM tuning portion of the job. The nitrous was fun, but filling bottles got a bit old for Max and he decided to take the plunge and go down the turbo road. The first year was a basic turbo system on the stock engine. Going into the 2015 season Max decided to step it up and do a fully built engine using all forged internals, which has allowed him to push his street car into the bottom 9’s.

We are very proud of what Max has accomplished in his short time out with his car and we know there is lots more to come. Heading into 2016, Max has big plans for the car including new cylinder heads, camshafts , weight reduction, and more. Stay tuned to see how fast he can go in 2016!
