Cool Getting my LT's put in Monday at Lone Star Performance.....

Anything I should be looking foward too, got the O2 extensions, LT's, shorty catted H-pipe. Gonna have them install a new clutch also since they will have it all apart anyways, got a SPEC stage II + their aluminum flywheel!

Will I have any problems driving it, I hear of people saying their car dies under certain conditions.

And should I get a chip burned soon, got some mods on there now and just wondering.....

Thanks!

excellent decision on the longtubes, they will work great on your cobra. i would go ahead and add the steeda pullies before you add a dyntuned chip. and with the chip you don't need to get a timing adjuster since they add timing with the chip. post up dyno numbers after the lt's are installed.

Cool

Actually 2cammer, I already have the pullies installed, got them 4.10's, and an aluminum driveshaft installed a few weeks ago!

Will definately get some dyno numbers when this is all put on, can't wait!

Are you saying I will not need a TA if I get chipped? I got a TA, hopefully to be put on soon, is it a waste?

the TA is a waste if you want a dyno tuned chip. if you put the TA on and adjust timing to optimal and your A/F ratio is good then you won't really need a tuned chip since these are the main two areas a chip focuses on, timing and A/F. i have more mods then you on my car but the dyno tuned chip was worth 20 rwhp and 16 rwtq. how was your A/F on your previous dyno pulls?

Don't know the A/F, some guy in an import, with a huge ass muffler, 2 cars ahead of me somehow damaged it so it would not read properly, hopefully the next time I go back it will be working properly!

So basically, it's either a TA or a dyno chip? Can't have both and benefit from both being on at the same time?

there is really no benefit of having a TA and a chip at the same time. most people that have TA's that later on feel the need for a dynotuned chip end up selling the TA (that's what i did as well). the TA worked great when my car was mostly stock but as soon as the heads/cams/longtubes/etc went on the TA came off and in went the chip. i would wait to put the TA on until after you dyno and make sure to get an A/F done. if the A/F looks good (12.5 to 13.2) then i would slap on the TA and adjust the timing on the dyno again and you should not need a chip. if you get dynoed and your A/F is rich at like sub 12 then i would sell the TA before even putting it on and just go straight to getting a tuned chip. i would recommend Houston Performance although it is a little bit of a drive. they are awesome and steve knows his stuff. hope this helps.
