Nice. I have the 65mm T.B. My car is now just sitting until I can make enough money to rebuild it. I'm not gonna sell anything. So don't ask. I did notice that with the 70mm MAF and 65mm T.B. It has better throttle response.

that's gonna be a slow 347. that top end belongs on a 302. a stroker needs much better heads and intake.

your so wrong mike that intake is capable up to around 500 horse, the heads are a little small , but will make very decent power

so, guys the two hose ports on the back of the cobra intake, should they just be capped? when i bought my bird, one was capped, the other has a hose with a breather that just sucks in engine compartement air... and it whistles on idle. i know the old fox body stangs used one of these for the map sensor, but we don't have em. do they do anything or should they be capped?

Darn, I was hoping to see a supercharged 4.6 COBRA swap...not just an intake.

Has that been done btw or did I miss it?

Act

I got my cobra intake installed but check engine light is on-where can I put my ACT? I do not have an air box, so that option is out! Thank you

Post a pic of your intake system so we can see it. I installed the senser in the lower intake as it was designed but I had to drill out and tap the boss. You can't do that with the intake installed. With no air box I am not sure where to put it so that is why I am asking for a pic of under the hood

I put an airbox on and put the ACT in as described in StupidFly's posting from 2004. The check engine light is no longer on. Never did find a camera to post picture!
