    03/04 swapped kenne bell cobra, fully built in NC

    I am putting my cobra up for sale hopefully for the last time. She needs a new home as I don't have time for her. The car previously had a procharger f1a setup on it and no one was interested in it or the corbeaus I had in the car. So I swapped the procharger for a KB 2.6H setup, and swapped...

    my take on a terminator swap-big cams vid and pics

    SO as some of you know I had a procharger f1a on my car and it never really drove the way I wanted it too nor did it sell when I wanted it to. So I saw how most terminator swapped sn95's were selling pretty easily so me being me I decided to have some fun adn swap mine over as well. Without me...

    DYNO: car is a beast, tires not up to it.

    I drove 2.5hr each way and took the car to my good friend Rick at amazon tuning to finish up the car today.

    guys with kenne bells- boost guage question

    just took my car out for the first time with the kenne bell 2.6h. gave it a few stabs and had no boost showing on my autometer boost gauge. (I know the gauge works because I used it on my last setup and all I changed is where the hose goes to). I have the boost gauge connected directly to the...

    need help with frpp 80's

    had another thread but starting fresh here. I am having issues with my car running overly rich (11.5 afr) at idle and I can't seem to get it to lean out much at all. I've got it as far as 12.o but that's it. I'm using frpp 80's and a sct2600 with my KB setup. I've research the issues with...

    Interesting fuel issue- any thoughts?

    So I recently swapped out my procharged f1a setup for a kenne bell 2.6h setup. nothing in the fuel system changed except for the fuel rails. I also changed the maf to a SCTBA2600 (not fuel system related). When I confirmed all vacuum leaks were addressed (first start idled at 1700rpm), the...

    new setup issues- looking for insight

    hey everybody- I started up my newest setup last week and it has a high idle of 1700rpm and I'm concerned the iat2 temps are too high. the setup consists of a built motor 10:1CR, big cams, built fuel system, trans, rear etc. it ran very well with the procharger f1a setup I had previously but...

    throttle cable is too long- insight please

    so I'm all finished with my 2.6KB install (w/accufab sbtb) but the 2003 cobra throttle cable is much too long. I measured it and it is 33inches long which from what I can tell is the stock length of a 2003 throttle cable. So what gives? my pedal is sitting on the floor and it's still not tight.
