YES! About that time man. I'm just about excited as you!! Keep us posted.
No, I left that part stock.
Ha! Thanks. I definitely needed the garage features to make this project go!
Not knocking you, but why'd you decide to leave that stock?
Sorry for the slow reply.
I had the bypass kit, but sold it last fall. I had bitten off too much already with the job and thought if I were to install it, I would do it during my clutch replacement. That and I did not want any potential leakage issues.
It runs pretty good (at 17psi currently) although I am progressively working my way up the RPM and boost testing as I check things out and recalibrate it. I do like the sound of the 2.2 KB (this is the first I have heard one in person).
Here are a couple pictures from today after its first wash of the season. You have to like 81F+ in central IL.
The only bad luck I had was the day after I got it running I was left dead in parking lot - broken fuel rail pressure sensor (cracked and pumped fuel out into the manifold). That set me back a couple days. I ran it clean, changed the plugs, did an oil change and all is well now.
Wow, the mods came out great! Car looks good!
Wow looks great bro.
Looks real good. :beer:
Thanks everyone - I could not have done it without this site and its members! :rockon:
I plan on starting a thread in the Teminator Engine section or How-To section with more pictures and details on what I did and what I found during the install process.
Looks great! I've enjoyed following your progress- thanks for sharing. BTW- I see that you went with a shrouded RAI. KB says to never do this as it will harm the blower. Instead, use some sort of a fenderwell CAI. --I'd like to hear some comments from KB owners on this, as I am about to bolt on a 2.6H on my '04 Cobra.
Feel free to send PMs if you don't want to clutter this thread with KB air intake comments. I have a strong feeling sonicmach1 likes things neat and orderly...
Nice garage and setup!
Looks great, quick question where did you get the neon sign?
looks awesome. good job!
Turned out great! Nice work!
Looks like someones been real busy
Can I come live with you? Hahah nice garage, and great project, that car is mint.
Holy crap that Cobra is clean. Your undercarriage makes me almost drool.
Thanks. Yes I read about the KB mandate for the cold air kits. As badly as the Steeda looks (i.e. to not seal), my aircharge inlet temps are actually pretty good. I was running 88F inlet on an 80F day at one point I looked at it. I do want to make a better shield for it or get another kit. I have heard issues with the JLT fender kit robbing some power with the extra inlet bends and smaller filter size. Maybe a JLT RAI version? - I need to shop around.
Ha! I do like things neat and orderly (my partial OCD!). :thumbsup: Now I just need to learn how to take better pics so they look more like reality when I pop the hood. I have yet to be able to do it.
I just read this entire thread! Good job, the car looks great and of course you have the best color.
