Damn that looks great.:beer:
gay, when i had a 2v i could take them off easily.
Yea but I have 2.5 times more horse power and I'm 3 seconds better than you in the quarter mile
huh? I dont have a 2v...
and you have like 700hp and run 11's? FAIL
It says u have a 2000 fobra(WTF is that anyways) with 251hp and 288tq
My car made 569rwhp and 575rwtq without nitrous. I also went 11's on street tires sucker.
just a suggestion so you dont have to get under the dash, but you can loosen the driver motor mount and lower the engine with a jack and 2x4. saves alot of time and headache. I have done it this way and then seen a buddy do it the quick way and was amazed on how much quicker it was. Only need to lower a 1/4 inch or so. OP great write up and pic though
fobra = fake cobra
251/288 was my 2v dyno (just throttle body and midpipe)
and ok sucker? yeah man your car is sooo fast its rediculous..
fobra = fake cobra.
read my sig.
Just a little smack talk man. Don't get your panties in a wad.
Let's get back on topic and not destroy this good information thread.
I'm trying to picture it but cant really see how that would help much. Does it put the motor on an easier angle to get the lower bolts off and slip the valve cover out?
yeah from what i remember it was almost a stright pull out once i had pulled the master and booster...
there is like 2 inches or so of room under the master but you still have to get over all the caps...
I think next time they come off the motor will just be pulled out for cams hahah heard its easier to drop the subframe to do them haha
if your doing cams you mine as well drop the motor and pull the heads. update the springs with better ones and also get the guides replaced so you take away the potential for the head tick issue that plagues some cobra owners.
hahaha oh yeah, its just the whole thing of, i dont have a hoist in my garage hahaha i might end up pulling it from the top :shrug: which really may suck.
I think if i do them i might get into spending the money to get everything done while im there. tossed around the idea of heads if i were to do it but lots of money $$$... either way it wont be for atleast another year that ill toy with the idea of cams/head work... just to much damn work haha i dont feel like doing.
exactly just enough room to slip the cover out without removing the booster :beer:
What do you mean by loosening the mount? Wouldn't it still be sitting on the mount unless you removed the mount itself?
sorry yes you would basically remove the driver engine mount to be able to lower that side of the engine. I will be doing this in a month so I will post pics.
If I am just removing the valve covers to paint them, do I have to remove the supercharger and intake?
WTF did you quote that entire thing? Jesus christ...
WOW!!! Didnt know it was that big of a deal. Ease up! Didnt know I did that. I fixed it. Does that make up feel better.........Some people, I tell ya.
no you dont just the intake plenum and tb also remove the fuel injectors so the harness doesnt get in the way on the passenger side.
