OK.. after doing a few things to get my car running and in good condition again... I'm thinking I need more power... like we all do.. ;)

About the only thing NA that I don't have that I'd consider is LT Headers and a Steeda Timing Adjuster. I know the LT's are a real pain in the keester to install.. so I'm thinking TA is next on the list.

Plus it's cheaper and my wallet is a little light as of late.

If you already have a TA:

Would you do it again?
How hard / tricky was the install?
(I've already got the ASP Pulley's and have had to pull them and replace them once, so that's not too difficult)
Any slight tips to getting it on?
Is the general concensus that 14 Degrees is the timing to start?

Thanks as always for any input.

Yes I would do it again. It wasn't that hard and pretty straight forward. 14 Degrees is what I've gotten best power at and a lot of other Cobras have said the same. Hope this helps.

The install isn't too bad, just make sure you get the spacing between the teeth and the pickup correct or it won't work right. Steeda gives decent directions with it. I have mine set at 14 degrees for the street but have run my best times with it around 16 or 17 degrees at the dragstrip. Your results may vary, every car is a little different.

can't you change your timing with MSD-4? I think u can I would skip steeda TA and get that . If u ever get a S/C or plan on it your gonna have to get rid of the steeda TA waste of money IMO

If your naturally aspirated or not msd-4 still blows steeda ta out of the water .once again if it allows timing adjustment :p

My friend got steeda t/a with pullies for his 98gt ran 14 degrees then got NOS and had to drop the timing back to 10 degress LOL least I got his old mac pullies:)

I could definetly be wrong here but I was under the impression the MSD-4 ignition only offered timing adjustments within a narrow range and the main advantage to it was the two-step capability for adjusting your rev limiter. If the MSD-4 lets you adjust timing advanced up to 10 degrees more than stock, and retarded up to 10 degrees less than stock, then I'd agree with it being a superior piece.

I might be alone here, but when it comes time to modify something I'd prefer to turn some wrenches rather than cut and splice wires and look at wiring diagrams etc...
