We have our Infinitybox systems powering cars all across the world. One of our Australian customers just sent us some great pictures of his Cobra replica. Peter K. started building this car in February 2012 and finished it in November 2017. The car is wired with our Infinitybox system and has been running flawlessly on the road.

Peter wired the car with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Core Kit. Our engineering team customized his system to accommodate some of his unique requirements for the Australian market. He also added inLINK for security, immobilizer and other remote features.
Peter mounted the MASTERCELL and the front POWERCELL in the footwell on the left-side of the car. Since this is a right-hand drive car, this is the passenger side. His front POWERCELL is powering the ECU, the starter solenoid, the headlights, high-beams, front turn-signals, front parking lights, cooling fan, horn and dash.
This picture shows the locations of the MASTERCELL and front POWERCELL.
He made a clever interior trim piece that hides both the MASTERCELL and front POWERCELL. At the same time, it gives him easy access to these cells for troubleshooting and diagnostics. Here is the trim piece in stalled with the panel open to the MASTERCELL.
Here is the trim piece with the MASTERCELL panel in place. You can see how easily the electrical system in this car disappears.
His rear POWERCELL is mounted in a compartment in the trunk. This rear POWERCELL is controlling the brake lights, rear turn-signals, rear running lights, fuel pump and other accessories in the rear of the car. This picture shows the POWERCELL mounted in the rear of the car with the battery and the primary fusing.
This picture shows the trim panels installed in trunk. In a small car like this Cobra replica, the Infinitybox system completely disappears.
Peter installed the Ford Racing Coyote engine in this Cobra replica. You can see how neatly this engine fits under the hood of this car.
The finished car is beautiful, powerful and functional. We thank Peter for sharing these pictures with us. The Infinitybox team is proud to be a part of this build.
