    Special Blend, did you have any trouble with customs shipping your blower to Stiegemier and back again?

    Actually I bought the blower, TB & Plenum off here for 400 bucks and had the shipped to Stiegemeier. Then after ported sent to me. Took only 6 days from Stiegemeier to my house.
    I'm going to put the stock blower, TB & Plenum in storage so I can go back to stock one day.

    Hello

    Bought a black 03 vert cobra in November with only 8900k on it. I got the Bassani catback, Bassani X-pipe wo/cats, steeda intake, mgw shifter, BF 2.76 with idlers, BF IRS brace and bracket, Eibach springs, MM FLSC , MM IRS bushings and Gords HE w/screen all waiting to go on.

    Got to drive the car home from Calgary and thats it it. I can hardly contain myself waiting for spring. Getting the car tuned in Red Deer at Lightspeed Innovations, although sounds like Martin is the guy with more experience.

    Cheers

    There are a lot of Terminators in Alberta getting a little extra muscle this spring by the sounds of it. We should try and get a dyno day setup or something, I just need to run mine to verify A/F and see what it lays down. Will finish tuning it on the street after that.

    Decided to tackle the blower swap on tuesday with the help of a buddy. It went very smoothly and we also stuck on my LFP heat exchanger and whipple tensioner. For those noticing my cowl is all apart because I need to take off my MM Strut tower brace. What a pain in the ass....lol.

    Lookin good man!! Can't wait to get all my crap installed, think the headers are going to take 8hrs, just like they did on my brothers Mach 1. So I figure a good weekend and the car should be ready to rip. Bet you are excited to say the least, what was the install time?

    It took me a little while. I had to take off the strut tower and the bumper cover etc. I total I think it all took about 9 hrs but I wasnt going at a break neck speed that is for sure. I'm sure I could do a blower swap quite quickly now if I did one again.

    That isn't all that bad at all. Hell I think my heat exchanger took me about 3hrs, but that included bending and fitting a screen/guard. I didn't pull the bumper cover, but thinking back it isn't all that hard to do and might have saved me some time. With the weather getting nicer a few of us will have to meet up. I really wanna find someone with a KB or Whipple to bum a ride off or see how the little old eaton stacks up.

    Ya I know one guy that is planning on a Whipple. We'll see though. I think that our cars will keep up because he isn't planning on more the 15psi with it anyways.
    The only thing i'm still waiting on now is my 18x9, 18x10.5 AFS 03 replicas and my 265/295 kumho MX's. They should be in within the week though.

    Those will look nice man. Only thing I am half ass concerned about now is that I am probably going to need DR to hook my car up now. I have a feeling you and me both are going to find 1st useless. Post up some pics when the wheels arrive.

    Got the headers installed yesterday! Dropped the k-member after we realized there was no way in hell to get the last bolt onto the primary for cylinder 4. Car sounds mean at WOT, can't even hear the blower whine anymore :banana: :pepper:

    Sweet man. Look forward to hearing it. I just paid for my rims and rubber today and it sounds like it should be shipped tomorrow and up here within the week.
