So, for my birthday my mom said she would buy me some parts for the cobra.:) I was thinkig of FRPP shorty headers or the accufab throttle body. what would you get? 70mm or 75mm for the throttle body? If I get the throttle body should I go ahead and get the plenum? any suggestions/ problems with the parts. thanks

Labor day weekend i will install the following: Magnaflow X-pipe, Magnflow cat back, JLT CAI, and MGW shifter.

With what your putting on on labor day I'd go for the headers.

I was told to do the headers and not the tb. More gain on the headers.:D

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH A THROTTLE BODY! Go for the headers. :thumbsup:

Go with the headers, but make sure you get plenty of B-Day cash to
pay for the installation. You can install headers in the garage but what a
serious PITA.

FRPP, BBK, MAC. As long as I get stainless steel and coated, will I see any major differences between the companies? If so is the difference worth the price? B/C of the magnaflow X-pipe i have to get shorties.

Lumpydogs, I noticed you have the FRPP headers and the Magnaflow x-pipe, with magnaflow cat-back. Sounds just like the setup ill probably go with. Will there be any problems with the O2 sensors? will the check engine light come on? b/c i wont be getting a chip for a while. will this be a problem?
